Activision Blizzard offers a multitude of options to personalize the player experience and ways to communicate, compete and collaborate. 

Here’s a look at what Activision Blizzard is doing to help players take control of their in-game experience:

Activision’s improved in-game reporting system, introduced alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II in November 2022, provides players with more ways to report offensive behavior and makes in-game reporting simple for players to do, allowing their moderation teams with useful context to classify incidents and investigate reported misconduct.

Blizzard’s Defense Matrix initiative, launched with Overwatch 2, offers players a variety of features to protect gameplay and foster a positive community, including a system that encourages players to “endorse” their teammates, a “leaver penalty” system that penalizes players who frequently leave a game while in progress (which puts remaining teammates at a disadvantage), a more refined chat filtering system (with friendly, mature, and unfiltered levels), and audio transcriptions to identify potentially disruptive behavior.
