Die bisher größte Nachricht des Jahres 2019 in der Spielebranche ist die Trennung von Activision Blizzard und Bungie samt der Rechte an der Destiny-Franchise. Im Anschluss an diese Nachricht fiel die Aktie von Activision Blizzard um circa zehn Prozent.
Jetzt haben zwei verschiedene Anwaltskanzleien angekündigt, gegen Activision Blizzard Sammelklagen einzureichen, die sich beide auf wesentlich falsche und irreführende öffentliche Äußerungen des Herausgebers kurz vor den oben genannten Nachrichten beziehen. Die Vorlesungszeit richtet sich an Anleger, die zwischen dem 2. August 2018 und dem 10. Januar 2019 Aktien der Gesellschaft erworben haben; Interessenten müssen bis spätestens 19. März 2019 tätig werden.
Hier sind die relevanten Auszüge aus den Pressemitteilungen der beiden Kanzleien:
Rosen Law Firm
According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the termination of Activision Blizzard (ATVI) and Bungie Inc.’s partnership, giving Bungie full publishing rights and responsibilities for the Destiny franchise, a series of science fiction-themed video games, was imminent; (2) the termination of the two companies’ relationship would foreseeably have a significant negative impact on Activision Blizzard’s revenues; and (3) as a result, Activision Blizzard’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Activision Blizzard’s termination of its partnership with Bungie Inc., which would give full publishing rights for the Destiny gaming franchise to Bungie, was about to occur. The end of the agreement between the two Companies was likely to have a considerable negative impact on Activision Blizzard’s revenues moving forward. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements throughout the class period were false and materially misleading. When the market learned the truth about Activision Blizzard (ATVI), investors suffered damages.
