Activision CEO makes $65 million in compensation Major video game publisher Activision Blizzard's CEO Robert Kotick was one of the highest paid executives of 2012.
The CEO made $65 million in compensation, thanks to a major stock award.

Kotick's base salary jumped to $2 million, and he received a $56 million stock award. Additionally compensation was performance based.

The company's revenues and net income only saw low single digit growth for 2012, much slower than 2011 when the exec made a much smaller salary and bonus.

Kotick has been a director and CEO of the company since 1991.

At least this guy has been with them from the early days...The "fly by night" CEOs that always jump ship when times are tough only to get a huge severance bonus really chaps the hide..
