Ubisoft Montpellier, the studio that developed the extraordinary long-awaited Past Good & Evil 2 is reportedly facing upheaval as it prepares for a labor probe into "unprecedented" levels of worker stress and illness, as well as the departure of its managing director.

Ubisoft Montpellier, well-known for its Rayman video games work under the studio's founder Michel Ancel, who departed in 2020 amid claims of poisonous behavior, is currently being investigated by Montpellier's Inspection du Travail due to an "unprecedented variety of builders experiencing burnout and occurring sick go away", according to Kotaku.

"Thousands" of Ubisoft Montpellier builders, together with "many" leads, have taken a prolonged break for stress or illness over the last 12 months, with some choosing not to return – a situation that resulted in a visit to the French labor inspection workplace in December.

Kotaku claims that a third-party organisation has been hired to interview Montpellier workers in order to produce a detailed report on the studio's well-being and well-being, which Ubisoft has now confirmed.

The well being and wellbeing of our groups is a constant concern, according to the writer. With Past Good & Evil 2, the Montpellier growth crew is present process wellbeing assessments via a third-party for preventative measures and to judge the place additional help may also be required.

Workers have been informed that managing director Guillaume Carmona, who is said to have been absent from the studio until the beginning of this 12 months, has now left the company. Carmona had been with Ubisoft for over twenty years and have risen to the top in their Montpellier studio in 2019.

Kotaku also reveals a number of different changes within the Past Good & Evil 2 cast, including inventive director Jean-Marc Geffroy, who was reportedly replaced by the sport's former affiliate director Emile Morel following Benjamin Dumaz's departure.

Ubisoft first teased Past Good & Evil 2 in 2008, but it was never revealed again until 2017, and all new information about it has mainly been released intermittently since. After almost ten years in development, Ubisoft has only managed to get The Settlers out of the park.

After disappointing monetary results, Ubisoft announced the cancellation of three unannounced video games, as well as a shift to "elevated cautiousness over the next years."
