A true man of the people.
Bobby Kotick's estimated wealth according to Google is anywhere from $600 million to $7 billion. And we should pat him on the back for being forced to halve his leeching why?
yea he will get that lost amount somehow, in another way :D
I can’t wait to see that money trickle down to the employees /s
Yeah going from "way to much" to "to much" seems like a good deed now a days but this whole system of over the top salaries and perverse bonuses has to change.It makes people greedy, corrupt and develop a flexible conscious.
Nice pr management
About time. Him and other CEOs in gaming like Andrew Wilson are some of the most overpaid CEOs, especially in gaming, where pay rates for standard employees is remarkably lower compared to other industries.
credit where credit's due. bold and good move Bobby
Maybe this will stop his name being brought up by people who say they are angry at the game but are really angry at how their life is....
Good on him to acknowledge he was payed way to much compared to regular staff. On the other hand i really want to know if he is in the 25% lowest earners in the gaming/entertainment industry, who the real top sharks are. Does this mean the heads of other companies is payed in the 2-4Billion$ range?Realistically Activision-Blizzard have since January released 9.05 and a Hearthstone expansion. The Blizzard Snowball has stopped rolling. Its again surviving on wow sub money and potential. Its not sustainable for a company to pay its CEO more than they can expect to earn back.
Only 41$ million now. Truly, a humble sum for a honest, humble CEO.
How about everyone working gets the same pay? Doubt his back hurts as much as the kitchen staff's. But good thing anyway.
