Ubisoft hosted a digital event on Sunday, dubbed “Ubisoft Forward”, and revealed more about its biggest upcoming games. These included Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, its newly announced battle royale shooter Hyper Rape, Far Cry 6. The company says that it also plans to hold another Ubisoft forward showcase later this year.
Just yesterday, three key members left Ubisoft, bringing a total of four departures (and an additional suspension), as the allegations were made public.
In a tweet posted just hours before the event, Ubisoft acknowledged the challenges facing the company but said it discussed them during the digital event.
Ubisoft said, “Because all the content has been pre-recorded, we wanted to recognize that the issues we’re currently dealing with won’t be addressed directly in the show,”
CEO Yves Guillemot, in a letter sent to employees on 2 July, promised extensive changes, including appointing a head of workplace culture and creating a position for head of diversity.
