The studio responds.

Development studio Quantic Dream has responded to allegations it is a racist, sexist and overall toxic environment to work within.

“Articles published today level various allegations at Quantic Dream, its management and employees. We categorically deny all of these allegations,” the studio said in a statement.

“Quantic Dream filed a complaint several months ago and further complaints will follow.

“We invite interested parties to read the responses of our Employee Representatives and Health & Security Committee to questions submitted by the journalists prior to publication. Inappropriate conduct or practices have no place at Quantic Dream. We have taken and always will take such grievances very seriously.

“We value every single person who works at Quantic Dream. It is of utmost importance to us that we maintain a safe environment that allows us all to channel our shared passion for making video games.”

Quantic Dream’s statement joins one made by studio head David Cage earlier this week.

The statement comes alongside a belief by original Le Monde reporter, William Audureau, that he was blacklisted by Sony after the report was released (via Resetera). In a situation that is still developing, has issued various tweets that say he’s been blacklisted to then confirming with Sony PR that he’s still in good graces.

Audureau’s first tweet (roughly) translates to, “From new year to blacklisted by Sony real quick.”

This tweet (roughly) translates to, “The PR representative from Sony France’s PR just texted me. It’s “super false” that I’m blacklisted, he affirmed.”

We’ll keep you informed as the situation progresses.
