On November 14th, Activision employees and friends participated in the 6th annual Veterans Day of Service. The Veterans Day of Service is an annual event where Activision Blizzard employees and friends partner with local organizations to support vets.
Just before Veterans Day, Activision released Call of Duty: WWII, the latest title in a flagship military first-person-shooter series that’s birthed dozens of games since 2003.
