The games company behind Call of Duty has confirmed it will make 1,100 of its US temporary staff full-time from the start of July.
The company was recently bought by Microsoft for a staggering $68.7 billion and has confirmed it will raise the minimum hourly wages for these employees to $20 an hour or more, as well as offering them full company benefits.
The move means the company’s staffing will increase by 25 percent.
