“We continue to look into the allegations made by him” Guillemot additional, without specifying that the allegations.

Tommy Francois, vice-president of all editorial and innovative solutions established in Paris, has been put on disciplinary leave”pending the results of an investigation,” Guillemot stated in the message found by AFP.

Another unnamed worker in the Toronto studio was ignored for”participating in behaviours which don’t align with what’s expected of Ubisoft workers,” he explained.

“Additional investigations are continuing and will be run rigorously”

“We cannot tolerate workplace misconduct and will keep on taking disciplinary actions against anyone who engages in discrimination, harassment and other behaviours that infringe our Code of Fair Conduct.”
