Ubisoft Singapore CEO Hugues Ricoeur, for example, was fired after a major investigation sparked several reports of sexual harassment, but instead of feeding him, he was sent to Ubisoft’s Paris headquarters to become director of production information.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said in July that “significant progress has been made” since the immorality allegations surfaced earlier, but employees have denied the allegations in an open letter, saying they continue to expect “real changes needed”. A Better Ubisoft also criticized the appointment of Igor Manceau as a chief creative officer, saying that “Ubisoft’s creative team is white with a yellow culture”, including first assistants Serge Hascoët and Patrick Plourde, who remain next to the editor-in-chief. council “despite numerous reports of immoral behavior against it”.
