Blizzard's response to the Hearthstone/Blitzchung/China/Hong Kong controversy (of its own making) may not have had the intended effect, but there are still games to sell! Right?

Well, if the launch of Overwatch on the Nintendo Switch is any indication, Activision Blizzard is a long (long) distance from figuring out their messaging on all of this.

And with Blizzcon 2019 just two weeks away.

Maybe Blizzard really should switch it up...in Virtual Legality.
