A new article from Polygon focuses on online abuse of employees from various game companies. The site reached out to 25 of them in total, asking each one the following:

“Please can you share with us how [your company] plans to deal with any situation in which an employee comes under abuse, doxxing or threatening messages. Alternatively, please let us know what steps you are currently taking to tackle this issue.”

Only six companies responded to Polygon’s inquiry, including Nintendo. Here’s what the big N shared:

“Nintendo firmly rejects the harassment of any individual in any form, including through social media or online game play. We take steps to support and protect our employees through policies based on best practices in this area and consistently evolve that approach as online harassment grows more complex and challenging.

“We also seek to maximize consumers’ enjoyment of our games and experiences by limiting their exposure to negative communications and online interactions.

“But it takes more than the best efforts of any one company to protect an individual being harassed online. Nintendo is committed to continuing its work within the industry and the broader community to ensure that people can both work and play without the fear of hate-fueled attacks.”

CCP, Electronic Arts, Gearbox, Microsoft, and the IGDA also responded. You can read their statements on Polygon here.
