Maxime Béland Leaves Ubisoft

Maxime Béland has resigned from Ubisoft, where he had served as Vice President Editorial, working on the Splinter Cell, Assassin's Creed, Rainbow Six, and Far Cry franchises. This is reported on Gamasutra where they add that another unnamed individual has been fired from Ubisoft Toronto for "engaging in behaviours that do not align with what is expected of Ubisoft employees." Béland was placed on leave last week following allegations of misconduct. The Gamasutra article offers details, saying there were "a stream of allegations posted on social media accusing the Ubisoft exec of choking a female employee at a Far Cry party and several forms of sexual harassment. Ubisoft was reportedly aware of those allegations but chose not to act." They have an official statement from Ubisoft:
Hi – I’m providing an update following the internal letter sent by Yves Guillemot yesterday, which outlined a series of initiatives aimed at improving the way in which Ubisoft operates.

Maxime Beland, Vice President Editorial, has resigned from his role at Ubisoft, effective immediately. Despite his resignation, we continue to investigate the allegations made against him. Additionally, effective as of yesterday, Tommy François, Vice President Editorial & Creative Services, has been placed on disciplinary leave pending the outcome of an investigation. One other individual in our Toronto studio has been terminated for engaging in behaviors that do not align with what is expected of Ubisoft employees. Other investigations are ongoing and will be conducted rigorously.

Ubisoft will not tolerate workplace misconduct and will continue taking disciplinary actions against anyone who engages in harassment, discrimination and other behaviors that infringe on our Code of Fair Conduct.

What you idiots continually fail to grasp is the simple fact that this is just the beginning, overt and aggressive acts of racism and sexism. Next it'll be for things much smaller and inconsequential, bullshit like "microagressions" as you moonbats like to call them. Not too long from now regardless of anything you say or do if a woman, and god help you if she's black, says you did something she didn't like - maybe didn't laugh at her joke - and the mob will turn on you. You'll be the next white fascist male being fired, sued, and having his life destroyed. When you're the victim of this PC idiocy you won't be loving it then.
