ABetterUbisoft Group employees expect fans to support them in their efforts to make positive changes in the company. Game developers working for the Group want to sign a petition and seek support from fans and other developers to help change the video game industry for the better.
At least a thousand current and former Ubisoft game developers are asking to participate in important business-related issues.
The company was accused of ignoring employee complaints about harassment and toxic work culture. But instead of taking tough action against violators, the company just moved them from one studio to another.
Officials say all they get from the administration are empty guarantees. They are unhappy that the company has not taken steps to protect victims or to ensure that such incidents do not happen again.
Some employees have reported several cases of sexual harassment and racism in the past. However, these complaints were never answered or, if so, those who complained never knew what was done and if any action was taken.
The company, known for its Assassin’s Creed, the open-world action-adventure video game, is gearing up to release new products for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S console generations, but officials aren’t surely prioritizing employees for a change in profit.
