It was June 2020 when, out of nowhere, dozens of accusations and testimonies from some victims of sexual or physical abuse inside Ubisoft. Over time, the list has gradually expanded without any kind of reply from the French company. And months after the event, close to the last one Ubisoft Forward, the CEO Yves Guillemot commented on the incident with a video release.

In addition to the topic of "internal abuse", with subsequent apologies to the victims by Guillemot, the CEO of Ubisoft then spoke about the recent controversies concerning Tom Clancy's Elite Squad and the clenched fist symbol, providing full support to equality movements such as the Black Lives Matter, claiming to have made a donation to NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.
Finally, to foster a more "open and inclusive" work environment, Guillemot has allocated an additional $ XNUMX million to improve Ubisoft's internal hiring program.
