Activision Sacked Jason Blundell Over Drunk Black Ops 4 Leaks (Update)

Update: Activision has denied the report and says Jason Blundell is still working on Zombies at Treyarch.

Original Story: Youtuber TheGamingRevolution has revealed that Treyarch’s Jason Blundell was fired because of the pre-Black Ops 3 and 4 campaign mismanagement and drunk leaks. Black Ops 3 campaign didn’t hold up to Black Ops 2, much less to Black Ops 1. And we have heard Black Ops 4 story mode was removed in favor of Blackout Battle Royale. The story mode never came together the way the development team wanted.

There were issues with the development of both games but the final straw is something else. Jason keeps drinking and giving out Black Ops 4 leaks under the influences, TheGamingRevolution claims. Following is the thread by TheGamingRevolution.

Activision fired around 10 Treyarch employees, including Jason Blundell. They’re pissed & fed up with Treyarch.

Jason’s departure was mainly a result of the pre-BO3/BO4 campaign disasters & the last straw was that he kept drinking & giving away leaks whilst under the influence.

It’s really sad, Jason was such a passionate guy and hopefully he’s doing okay and Treyarch can recuperate.

He made mistakes, but I don’t think he deserved to be banished althother, he’s done so much for the community & was a greatly valued team member.

I’ve known about this for a little while but I wasn’t planning on taking about it because I felt like it was too personal and not my place to say, but since the news is already out there I guess it’s okay to say now.

At this point, people don’t care about Black Ops 4 leaks but reportedly Activision didn’t take it well.

The thing is the stuff he told people was obvious stuff anyways that we knew was coming but I guess Activision don’t see it like that.

Other than Jason, 9 other executives lost their jobs. We don’t know for sure why Activision did this but apparently, the Call of Duty failures had finally gotten to them. Combine this with the fact that Bungie’s split with Activision, has resulted in the loss of the revenue from Destiny and Destiny 2.

Obviously, this means that Activision is now looking for a hope to guide them. And they want that hope to be Call of Duty : Modern Warfare. It, therefore, seems only sensible that they want new leaders. Let’s see how that turns out.
