Gamers attempt to hold Ubisoft accountable with a new hashtag. It’s not going to do much.
Ubisoft shared a video on Twitter about their strides in accessibility within games and their goals to improve. The celebration of accessibility was immediately flooded with comments and retweets using #HoldUbisoftAccountable.
This is because, only earlier this week, reports came out that, amidst revelations of Ubisoft’s workplace misconduct and abuse, that little had been done to rectify the issue. Claims were made from Ubisoft that it would teach mandatory anti-sexism training while also firing those involved.
However, it was found in an investigation conducted by French publication Le Telegramme that little has been done and that those at “the heart of the harassment scandal” still work for the company. This is being taken to court by the French Union Solidaires Informatique Jeu Vidéo.
