Activision Blizzard Inc., the video game publisher that’s facing an ongoing sexual misconduct investigation, said Thursday it will add two women to its board.

The new appointments will bring diversity to a panel that has been criticized for leaning heavily on longtime friends of Chief Executive Officer Bobby Kotick. To make room for the new members, Hendrik Hartong and Casey Wasserman will step down, Activision said in a statement.
