Ubisoft CEO apologises for toxic behaviour at the company ahead of “Forward” event

Yves Guillemot makes an official statement regarding former execs behaviour

Ahead of today’s Ubisoft Forward event, Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot posted a video to the company’s Twitter account addressing recent events of “toxic” behaviour amongst some of the company’s upper-echelon across multiple countries.

This summer, we learned that certain Ubisoft employees did not uphold our company’s values, and that our systems failed to protect the victims of their behaviour, I am truly sorry to everyone who was hurt. – Yves Guillemot

Earlier in the year Ubisoft executives Serge Hascoet, Cecile Cornet, and Ubisoft Canada head Yannis Mallat departed the company amongst a number of  harassment allegations, with PR director Stone Chin following not long after.

In addition to addressing the company’s stance on unacceptable behaviour, Guillemot spoke to the regrettable use of an in-game symbol, where a raised-fist was used to represent a villainous revolutionary group in the mobile game Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad.
