Ubisoft Employee Group Launches New Petition After None of Its Demands Were Met

Current and former staff affiliated with the ABetterUbisoft employee group have launched a new petition asking for support in their campaign to end abuse at the company and across the wider gaming industry.

The petition comes after a lack of response from the studio to the demands made in an open letter written by the group back in August. Signed by over 1,000 Ubisoft employees, the letter pledged support to a walkout taken by Activision Blizzard staff in light of their leadership’s response to ongoing harassment allegations while also demanding that Ubisoft management do more to end abuse at its own company.

In a tweet promoting the petition, a statement from the group reads, “You disappoint us, M. Guillemot. 100 days, zero demands met. Surely you can do better than this.” The message bears a similar tone to a recent marketing strategy deployed by Ubisoft to taunt players for not sinking enough hours into Far Cry 6.

In a separate tweet, the group set out its key demands for the campaign. In summary, these demands include ending a cycle of “promoting and moving known offenders from studio to studio,” and creating a cross-industry collaboration involving both management and non-management staff that will help to lay out a framework for ground rules and processes that studios can use to handle offences in the future.

While the petition is being led by current and former Ubisoft staff, the group says that it is “open to everyone who supports the #ABetterUbisoft campaign.” As part of the form, those pledging support can document whether they’re adding their signature as a player, fan, or Ubisoft employee. The petition can either be signed by name or anonymously and also includes a section for you to share your reasons for signing.

While Ubisoft’s employees demand that the studio does more, Activision Blizzard recently announced that it will be implementing a new “zero-tolerance” harassment policy across its entire company. The announcement featured as part of a letter from Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick, who also outlined several other changes that the company will be implementing going forward.

The company is currently still facing multiple, serious ongoing allegations of harassment and mistreatment of marginalized workers. To learn more, please visit our timeline as well as our in-depth report on the subject.
