Today, Activision Blizzard employees are staging a walkout following a lawsuit alleging discrimination and abuse at the company. Now, former and current employees at Ubisoft – another company which has come under fire for alleged discrimination and abuse – have signed an open letter in solidarity with Activision Blizzard workers demanding change across the industry.
“It has been over a year since the first revelations of systemic discrimination, harassment, and bullying within Ubisoft came out,” the employees write in the open letter. “At the time, you acted surprised to hear of these acts going on within your own company and we gave you the benefit of the doubt. However, we have seen nothing more than a year of kind words, empty promises, and an inability or unwillingness to remove known offenders. We no longer trust your commitment to address these issues at their core. You need to do more.”
According to Axios, nearly 500 current and former employees have signed the letter so far, including employees at Ubisoft studios in Europe, North America, and Asia.
