Hundreds Of Ubisoft Devs Sign On To Letter Demanding Accountability And Supporting Activision Blizzard
Lest we forget in the storm that has engulfed Activision Blizzard over the past week, Ubisoft has also had some less-than-stellar accusations of harassment and other workplace misbehavior in recent times. Earlier this week, thousands of current and former Activision Blizzard signed a petition to protest the working conditions and the company's responses to them, and they've been joined in spirit by hundreds of their counterparts at Ubisoft.
Axios reports that "close to 500" current and former Ubisoft employees have signed onto a open letter criticizing their company's response to its myriad of sexual harassment charges. The letter states that the Ubisoft personnel "believe you, we stand with you and support you" to the people at Activision Blizzard. "It is time to stop being shocked. We must demand real steps be taken to prevent them. Those responsible must be held accountable for their actions."
"We need real, fundamental change across within Ubisoft, within ActivisionBlizzard, and across the industry."
The letter is co-signed by representatives from 32 Ubisoft studios throughout the world. They decry the lack of action against many of the accused and demand "a seat at the table when it comes to deciding how to move forward from here." Despite some concessions from Ubisoft, many of the developers at the company "don’t feel the company’s culture has fundamentally changed," Axios said. You might say they're being extra defiant in their stance for more accountability at the company's highest levels.
