After a reorganization, the Managing Director of Beyond Good & Evil 2 is leaving the studio.
After Ubisoft assured in January that the development of Beyond Good & Evil 2 would continue, the further development of the game announced six years ago could now suffer another setback.
As the Kotaku website now reports, the responsible studio Ubisoft Montpellier could be facing an employment law investigation by the French Inspection du Travail.
Apparently there are concerns about an unprecedented number of sick leave and layoffs fueled by stress, burnout and illness.
A Ubisoft spokesperson said: “The health and well-being of our teams is an ongoing priority. Given the length of the development cycle for Beyond Good & Evil 2, the development team in Montpellier is undergoing a third-party wellbeing assessment to take preventative actions and identify where additional support is needed.”
Additionally, managing director Guillaume Carmona has reportedly left the studio. The positions of Senior Creative Director and Game Director have been replaced, while Executive Producer Guillaume Brunier could also be replaced.
