Ubisoft has been put under immense scrutiny following last year’s reports of sexual harassments, misconduct, and misrepresentation within the company. Many high-ranking officials were embroiled in the flurry of controversies that ensued last year, which led to a plethora of departures within the company’s studios.

Now, Igor Manceau has been appointed as the Chief Creative Officer at Ubisoft, a key role within the Ubisoft executive hierarchy that was previously assumed by Serge Hascoet, who left following the allegations last year. Manceau has been working at Ubisoft for over two decades now, and recently served as a creative director on Riders Republic.

A press release announcing the appointment states that the reasoning behind this hire is Manceau’s consistent efforts of making games more diverse. As spotted by PC Gamer, former and current Ubisoft workers’ group ABetterUbisoft also commented on the matter over on Twitter, and are hopeful that this change will be the beginning of better days at Ubisoft’s litany of internal studios.
