Activision Blizzard has lost yet another CFO

Blizzard CFO Amrita Ahuja is leaving to accept a position at payment processing firm Square. According to founder Jack Dorsey (of Twitter fame), Ahuja will help "strengthen [Square's] discipline as [they] invest, build, and scale," whatever that means.

There's likely a lot going on behind closed doors that the public (ourselves included) aren't privy to, but it certainly seems like Activision Blizzard is having a tough time with employee retention. Indeed, we recently reported that Blizzard is going so far as to pay its employees to leave, though that's probably a separate, cost-cutting-related issue.

As unfortunate as this news is for Activision Blizzard, there's a silver lining: the gaming industry is booming lately, so the company should have no trouble finding other fresh recruits to take the place of Neumann and Ahuja.
