Sony’s PlayStation and Others Put Pressure on Activision Blizzard

Sony Group Corp.’s PlayStation unit has asked Activision Blizzard Inc. to explain how it plans to address a Wall Street Journal article about its chief executive’s handling of sexual misconduct issues.

PlayStation boss Jim Ryan disclosed the request in a letter to employees Wednesday that was reviewed by the Journal. In it he said Sony reached out to Activision “to express our deep concern” about the article and that “we do not believe their statements of response properly address the situation.”
