Ubisoft has suspended two executives over allegations of sexual misconduct, a report from Bloomberg suggests.
The site reports that Vice Presidents Tommy Francois and Maxime Beland have both been accused “of at least three claims of misconduct” and that Ubisoft has also hired private law firms to investigate the allegations. What’s more, Ubisoft will form an internal group to “better solutions and tools to detect, report and resolve” further allegations.
Commenting on the matter, Valhalla’s Narrative Director, Darby McDevitt, asserted that each of Ubisoft’s fans and employees “has a primary right to feel safe, valued, and respected at all times.
“Any behavior that diminishes these core values should be stamped out,” McDevitt continued. “In my position and role, I am committed to listening more, learning more, and making myself available to anyone who wants to be heard.”
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and Stadia where available this holiday 2020 season.
