Agreed.

Even more execs got axed this time it's Yannis Mallat the Managing Director of Ubisoft’s Canadian studios. The PR makes it sounds likes he's stepping down peacefully.

I was wondering what game Laidlaw was working on after the announcement last year. Thankfully the Exec made the right call this time as that game is an abomination.

We don't need more online Monster Hunter games.

Wouldn't be that surprised if this little incident was not about the game's quality…
… but much more about a director with deep French heritage not allowing a game with deep English heritage…

Doesn't sound unlikely to me …

Time for more Ubisoft PR damage control.

loading…
The September edition of Ubisoft Forward will start shortly. We designed it as a time for developers and players to come together to celebrate a shared passion for games. However, in the light of recent events and issues that have surfaced at Ubisoft our CEO Yves Guillemot would like to say a few words before the event begins.

That dude always looks like a sleeze-ball. Also, I love it that the top of the company almost never has to take real responsability for his employees.

Step 1. Never answer a question. Instead repeat high level intent statements that can't be proven or verified.
Step 2. Don't refute facts. Instead give long speeches about the way you wish the world would look. Feel free to completely disconnect this from reality.
Step 3. If cornered, always find a way to shift the blame to an individual within your party, the system, or the general public.
Step 4. Profit….?

It is a marvelous strategy.

How about all games have a single huge lootbox you pay for up front that contains all the options, items, skins, unlocks etc? I'd pay for that!!

What exactly did they do that the CEO has to apologize? Is this like Major League Team Sports before the US election?

I'll sum it up for you, bad management, employee harassment, and such.

Poor Guillemot, he's so unlucky. Always a victim.
I still remember (IIRC) 30 years ago it was pirates who almost destroyed him and his company.

Someone should to pass a law 4+4 max years of being a CEO.
