Activision Blizzard came under major scrutiny after laying off nearly 800 employees this past week despite posting revenue of $2.43 billion in Q4 2018.
Now an organization known as Game Works Unite is now demanding that current Activision CEO Bobby Kotick be fired to due the company’s recent actions. This involves numerous executives receiving millions in bonuses and salaries. This includes Kotick’s yearly salary of $30 million (which would be enough to cover the salaries of all employees let go) and Activision CFO Dennis Durkin’s $15 million “signing bonus) just for taking the position.
Game Workers Unite has a coworker.org petition which has already raised 3,500 of its 4,000 signature goal.
