Electronic Arts has opened new resources for its employees and community members to report incidents of abuse it may have received or is currently receiving from EA staff. In a blog post on its official website yesterday, an EA spokesperson wrote, “We take every allegation seriously and we investigate it. We are deeply committed to ensuring there is safe space for people to come forward and taking the right actions on behalf of our community.”
This new initiative comes after a wave of allegations against noted industry figures was posted to social media last week. As EA put it, “The stories we’ve heard recently make it clear there is still a lot of work to be done in our industry.” Reports of sexual and physical abuse were rampant and it has become abundantly clear that there is a serious problem for many within the gaming industry.
As such, EA is now urging anyone with similar stories to report those stories using its harassment report form. If you wish to remain anonymous while making a report, you can do so through EA’s “Raise a Concern” program.
If you or anyone you know has experienced anything discomforting from EA, it is recommended you use these resources to report those incidents.
