French Newspaper Liberation did an in-depth investigation of the Ubisoft harassment cases and turns out, the HR knew about 100+ cases.
safe to say ubisoft is more garbage and dispicable than EA?
EA might make a big fuss about how they are great employers but I bet they have skeletons in their closest.
I think any company the size of these companies probably has a copious number if these kinds of cases within their HR. What really matters is how they handle them. If you ignore them, or dont take them seriously, then that's bad. When you're a company that has a few thousand employees in multiple offices around the world with their own management teams, there are always going to be those people that dont behave in an acceptable manner. Not sure how ubisoft handled any of these cases here, and not making any excuses for them, but think perspective is important in discussing this issue since so many people immediately jump to the worst possible conclusion.
My wallet is a victim. (....sorry, not to make light of those issues if they are true. just saying it's a common trend.)
*sorry guys, in retrospect looking back at it, I feel this joke was in bad taste. Feel free to collapse this as inappropriate.
Ubisoft is truly despicable.
How do you let something like this build up? Surely someone should have reported this to the authorities.
I would urge people to actually read the article before leaving a comment for a more serious topic like this.
I couldn’t get through that article. “Psychological harassment” isn’t a high bar these days. What I got out of the first bit is “the VP is a dick and UBisoft values him more than me.” Welcome to the workforce. I didn’t get to the rape part but that’s unacceptable in any view. I didn’t even get to the “endorsed toxic behavior” because the article was so filler-based. It could be bad, it could be weirdo entitlement. I don’t know and this article do much to make me care. Maybe that’s why the original article is behind a paywall.
Curious....Far Cry 5 was pretty good overall. But am I the only one who thought it was over-the-top crass when it came to sexual content? So, the devs are free to write/create the content, and then when the same behaviors manifest in real life, it suddenly becomes a problem? Ironic isn’t it?
Well yeah... In real life people Can't be robbing banks and Jewelry Stores, stealing cars, screwing hookers and killing em to get your money back, killing cops, or go on a vehicular splatter sprees in times square. However I Don't expect anyone from Rockstar* to do anything like that. Of course it suddenly becomes a problem when people do dumb shit lol
It's more like they couldn't hide it any more. At least they are doing something about it. Makes you wonder about other studios.
