In Britain, more recently, companies employing more than 250 people are obliged to publicly report on the wage gap between men, women and other undecided people. This had to be done and companies from the gaming sector. It turned out that they all men are more valued, but the studio Rockstar North managed to excel.
First, in most gaming studios, the wage gap between women and men was roughly the same: Warner Bros (30.9%), Codemasters (22.2%), Jagex (21.7%), Traveler’s Tales (20.9% %), Creative Assembly (20.3%). But in Rockstar North, women do not report 64% compared to men. And bonuses for women are 84% less.
The report of Rockstar North was accompanied by the following explanation: “We strive to build a gender balance in all our activities of gaming studios. And we pledge to continue to look for new ways, to support and encourage women in their careers in the gaming industry. “
