20.4.2022 | Activision Blizzard announced all temporary QA workers to be converted to full-time employees
Activision Blizzard has just announced that all temporary and contingent QA workers of its Activision Publishing and Blizzard divisions are being converted to full-time employees.
Meaning nearly 1,100 temp game testers are getting full-time jobs with benefits. They’ll be making higher wages, too, with a new minimum hourly rate of $20.
According to Jessica Taylor, Activision Blizzard’s vice president of corporate communications, the change follows after significant worker activism after Raven Software, an Activision studio known for its work on the Call of Duty series.
