Another Ubisoft Exec Removed

Kotaku reports that Hugues Ricour has been removed from his position as managing director of Ubisoft's Singapore studio where they are developing Skull and Bones. It is not clear if he is still with the company, and it is not stated whether this is related to the sexual harassment scandal at the company. They do note allegations of sexual harassment by Ricour are part of this Gamasutra report from August. They also say: "Sources Kotaku have spoken with over the last several months say that Ricour's management style and behavior at work was problematic, citing bullying, demeaning comments, and retaliatory action against those perceived to have stood up to him." They quote an internal Ubisoft email saying the move is the result of a "leadership audit":
"Effective immediately, Hugues Ricour is no longer Managing Director of Ubisoft Singapore," reads the email from Ubisoft chief studios operating officer, Virginie Haas, who took over that position in August amid the company’s ongoing MeToo reckoning. "The results of the leadership audit that was conducted in the last few weeks by our external partners makes it impossible for him to continue in this position."
