Ubisoft Montpellier's chief executive has reportedly left the company amid a labor complaint by local authorities.
The development of "Beyond Good & Evil 2" has been a bit tense so far. Many players are still unsure whether the game will be released in a finished version on the market.
The negative headlines about Ubisoft Montpellier's managing director and studio manager continued in January.
Guillaume Carmona, who left Montpellier last week, was not identified.
The working conditions of the workers are being examined.
Moreover, the departure comes at a time when the studio is being investigated by the French employment authorities. The reason for the increase was an increase of employees who were on sick leave, some of whom were burnt out.
Ubisoft explained that "the well-being of our employees is a top priority." Due to the length of the development cycle for Beyond Good & Evil 2, the Montpellier development team is conducting a third-party wellness assessment to take preventative measures and assess when additional help is needed."
Although Ubisoft has repeatedly stated that "Beyond Good & Evil 2" has not been canceled and that work on it is continuing, recent reports gave the impression that the game is still in a very early stage of development, even though Ubisoft has been working on the project for at least ten years.
As a result of the news, the title has recently undergone a significant personnel change, with Senior Creative Director Jean-Marc Geffroy and Game Director Benjamin Dumaz departing the project, being replaced by Emile Morel and Charles Gaudron.
Michel Ancel, the creator of Beyond Good & Evil and Rayman, announced his retirement from Ubisoft Montpellier in 2020 in order to pursue a new career in wildlife.
