Double Eleven, the developer who helped develop Fallout 76 and LittleBigPlanet, has offered staff a £2,500 raise in response to the cost of living crisis facing the UK. The news was revealed by the game developers union IWGB. The move is significant for a UK-based company as food and energy costs in Britain have spiraled in recent months and workers from all walks of life have been on strike for pay rises.
The developers of Double Eleven responded very positively to the news. Senior game designer Natalie Wicks wrote: “My boss has just announced an additional £2.5k per employee on top of previous pay/annual raises to offset the cost of living. I’ve always been surprised how Double Eleven can be so cool.”
It is understood that Double Eleven is currently the only gaming company to raise wages in response to the cost of living crisis, which means that the company will likely not participate in a new wave of strikes in the UK.
