Ubisoft Misconduct Investigation Follow-up

A story on Bloomberg by former Kotaku reporter Jason Schreier reveals further fallout at Ubisoft from the recent flurry of misconduct allegations. Word is two executives and other staff have been placed on leave pending investigations into their conduct. Here's word:
Ubisoft Entertainment SA, one of the world’s largest video-game publishers, placed two executives and several other employees on administrative leave as part of a corporate investigation into misconduct allegations made public over the last week, according to people familiar with the situation.

The two high-ranking employees under scrutiny are Tommy François and Maxime Béland, both vice presidents in the group overseeing development of Ubisoft’s games worldwide, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing personnel issues. Each man faced at least three claims of misconduct among a flurry of Twitter posts from named and anonymous accusers.

Neither François nor Béland responded to requests for comment. Stephanie Magnier, a spokeswoman for Ubisoft, wrote in an email: “These are under investigation, so we are not commenting further at this time.”

Wonderful! Let the modern day witch hunt commence! Let the anonymous accusations fly and let's ruin some lives and careers! I love 2020!

Indeed. These are nothing more than modern day witchhunts and drumhead trials all for appearance sake. So long as there's an executive class and everyone else are wage slaves it's just so much hot air.

'We care about our employees. So please don't misconstrue it because we treat them like virtual slaves and will fire them on the spot and destroy their lives for even the merest hint of impropriety. Impropriety being what ever is the political hot button for the moment.'
