Bobby Kotick nabs second place in list of games CEO compensation for 2020

As the pandemic ground to a halt in 2020 and people holed up in their homes for months, seeking solace in games and other tech, it was inevitable that many of the gaming and tech companies would see a boost in their results. However, a new survey from market intelligence firm Games One now reveals how much of those 2020 profits went to the CEOs of the companies in question.

Leading the pack by a significant margin is mobile game company Playtika CEO Robert Antokol, who earned a staggering $372,008,176 in total compensation in 2020. Hot on his heels is Activision Blizzard’s Bobby Kotick, who was clearly enjoying himself. his $154,613,318 in the months before the stories began to surface. the press about your company’s toxic workplace and your own involvement in it.

The survey calculated its figures from “a mix of salary, bonus, stock, benefits,” and also included the median salary of employees at a handful of companies to calculate the salary ratio between the average employee and CEO. Activision, unsurprisingly, finished bottom, with a payout ratio of 1:1,560. In fact, it’s worth noting that the three top-earning CEOs (Skillz’s Antokol, Kotick, and Andrew Paradise) together earned almost three times the combined compensation of all the other CEOs on the list.

It’s interesting to see these figures presented for 2020, especially since analysts are likely to start seeing similar data for 2021 soon. the various controversies with which it still faces. If the CEO’s earnings numbers look too close to 2020, it could be another nail in the proverbial coffin for some of these high-earning executives.
