According to Singaporean newspaper The Straits Times, Tafep (Singapore’s national watchdog for fair employment practices) is investigating the Skull & Bones developer after receiving anonymous information last month.

The anonymous informant made Tafep aware of several media articles about allegations of workplace harassment and unfair treatment at Ubisoft‘s Singapore office.

Last year, Ubisoft Singapore managing director Hugues Ricour was replaced following misconduct allegations and left the studio, but he continued to remain employed by Ubisoft.

“Effective immediately, Hugues Ricour is no longer Managing Director of Ubisoft Singapore,” an internal email sent to staff in November 2020 read. “The results of the leadership audit that was conducted in the last few weeks by our external partners makes it impossible for him to continue in this position.”

And no accountability will occur. Ubisoft will still make games and people will still buy their games.
