UK games industry gender pay gap widens

The gender pay has increased year-on-year in the UK games industry.

In this year's report, women are earning an average of 22.26 per cent more than men in median bonus pay. This figure, however, is heavily weighted by women at Ubisoft Reflections' studio earning 292.3 per cent more in median bonus pay than their male counterparts.
