Activision CEO Made the Most Money Last Year in Industry

Activision's Bobby Kotick made almost $15 million last year, the most among publicly traded American game publishers. The Game Trade Journal dug around public filings and compiled them on one page.

Of note, Kotick’s total compensation the year before (before Activision’s acquisition of Vivendi) was a mere $2.8 million. We’re relieved he’ll be able to put dinner on the table this year.
At least some are doing well in this economy.

That's what I should have been when I grew up. A digital drug peddler.

Even shitty CEO's make a mint. It's called "the American Way" and it involves pillaging whomever you can, for however much you can, as long as you can, until you get caught and given a golden parachute to leave.

Johan, it truly is the American way, because the developers and designers enabling him to receive exorbitant compensation don't make a tenth of what he does.
