Malik and the Checkpoint crew also talk about game companies and how they’ve reacted to the protests. Many developers like Ubisoft and Square Enix chose to donate to Black social justice groups or vowed to increase diversity. Many like EA and the Niantic committed to both. Malik lets us know that while EA may have a sour reputation with gamers, they’ve stepped up when it comes to diversity.
