Ubisoft's "Great Exodus"

A report on Axios says that so many developers have departed scandal-ridden Ubisoft over the past 18 months that the wave is being called "the great exodus" and "the cut artery" by insiders. The article has a response from Ubisoft saying the company's standing is in line with the competition based on surveys of employees. As for the departures: "Our attrition today is a few percentage points above where it typically is," said Ubisoft's Anika Grant. "But it's still within industry norms." Here's how the report describes the impact of all this:

Signs of the exits are abundant.

  • Top-name talent is leaving, with at least five of the top 25-credited people from the company's biggest 2021 game, Far Cry 6, already gone. Twelve of the top 50 from last year's biggest Ubisoft release, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, have left too. (A 13th recently returned.)
  • Also out are midlevel and lower-level workers as headcounts drop, particularly in Ubisoft's large and normally growing Canadian studios. LinkedIn shows Ubisoft's Montreal and Toronto studios each down at least 60 total workers in the last six months.
  • Two current developers tell Axios the departures have stalled or slowed projects.
  • One developer recently said a colleague currently at Ubisoft contacted them to solve an issue with a game, because no one was still there who knew the system.

Companies are never going to learn, that the most important asset of any company is its employees. Treat them like shit, and don't expect them to hang around and be loyal. Loyalty is a two way street. Many companies don't care and in the end this is what happens.
