While Activision Blizzard have taken the news cycle by storm over the past week for sexual harassment and other misconduct, another studio who has also ran into their own allegations are running into issues once again.
A group of now over 1,000 Ubisoft employees have signed an open letter to CEO Yves Guillemot for failing to address their points in demands. These include making a new reporting process for issues related to a safe workplace and to remove all known offenders from the company.
Axios reported Stephen Totilo took to Twitter to reveal the e-mail that was sent out to all Ubisoft employees. In this e-mail Guillemot notes the changes the company has made over the past year, noting the letter’s i”ssues it raises seriously,” and that the company will be providing an update regarding this in Q3.
The group who made the open letter have since reached out to GamesIndustry.biz to say that a “majority of our demands were sidelined and few of our points seem to have been addressed.” The group said:
“We are aware that the company has made some improvements, and we are happy to hear that Yves and the leadership team agree that it is not enough.”
“However, Ubisoft continues to protect and promote known offenders and their allies. We see management continuing to avoid this issue. It is also worth clarifying that an invitation to reach out to company management personally is not the same as having a collective seat at the table.”
