A quarter of employees at the French video game giant Ubisoft have been victims of professional misconduct at work or were witnesses to it, according to a survey carried out by the group following allegations of sexual misconduct.
The creator of hit games including Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry launched a probe and announced the departure of its chief creative officer and other senior executives in July after claims about the group’s toxic work culture.
Chief executive and co-founder Yves Guillemot, who admitted earlier this year that the group had “fallen short”, said that 2,000 employees had participated in “listening sessions” and nearly 14,000 had responded to an anonymous survey.
