Microsoft will lay off 1,900 employees from Activision Blizzard and Xbox this week, as part of a strategy to focus on sustainable growth. The reductions account for approximately 8% of the total Microsoft Gaming division (standing at 22,000 employees), with the majority cut expected to take place primarily at Activision Blizzard. This move aims to better allocate talent and resources, allowing Blizzard and Xbox to create more ambitious games for a wider range of platforms and locations.
