Activision has come under fire recently over allegations that female employees have been subject to sexual harassment and gender discrimination.

A lawsuit brought by California’s department of fair employment has accused the company of violating the US state’s civil rights and equal pay laws.

Part of the legal filing claimed: “Female employees almost universally confirmed that working for defendants was akin to working in a frat house.

"In the office, women are subjected to 'cube crawls', in which male employees drink copious amounts of alcohol as they 'crawl' their way through various cubicles in the office and often engage in inappropriate behaviour toward female employees."

CEO Bobby Kotick later said: “We are taking swift action to be the compassionate, caring company you came to work for and to ensure a safe environment.

“There is no place anywhere at our company for discrimination, harassment, or unequal treatment of any kind.”
