One of the world's largest game companies is being taken to court over an alleged "frat boy" culture that discriminates against women.
California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) is taking legal action against the company, following a two-year investigation.
The company is one of the largest and most successful games companies, publishing major titles Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, Overwatch and many others.
"Female employees almost universally confirmed that working for defendants was akin to working in a frat house," the DFEH legal filing claims.
"In the office, women are subjected to 'cube crawls', in which make 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."
"As a result of these complaints, female employees were subjected to retaliation, including but not limited to being deprived of work on projects, unwillingly transferred to different units and selected for layoffs," the DFEH said.
