Axios reports that “The Great Resignation” is hitting game publisher and developer Ubisoft hard in what is internally known as “The Great Exodus” as wave after wave of resignations are hindering its ability to function.
Talent from the top of the chain is leaking out of the company at an alarming rate, with five of the top 25 people who worked on Far Cry 6 leaving, as well as 12 of the top 50 from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. People from lower on the ladder are leaving as well, with LinkedIn showing that Ubisoft Toronto and Ubisoft Montreal each down 60 total people. It’s becoming such a problem that entire projects have stalled or been delayed due to being short staff.
Loss of employees can probably be attributed to several factors, with interviews citing low pay, more competitive positions elsewhere, creative frustration, and frustration with how HQ handled the recent claims of workplace sexism and harassment.
