Assassin’s Creed Codename Red Project Lead’s Abuse Allegations Reportedly Sees Devs Requesting Not To Work On The Game

Developers within Ubisoft Quebec have reportedly requested not to work on Assassin’s Creed Codename Red due to the abuse allegations levelled at project lead Jonathan Dumont.

Speaking with TheGamer, an anonymous worker from the A Better Ubisoft program has claimed that Dumont has been responsible for many developers leaving Ubisoft as a whole, with his alleged outbursts “creating a climate of fear.”

Back in 2020, Dumont was accused of verbally abusing and making sexual advances to colleagues at Ubisoft, particularly amongst women and newcomers to the company.

Dumont has been the reason [for] multiple of my colleagues leaving. Be it because of sexual advances, belittlement, fear of him, or having seen his behaviour when in a bad mood. His outbursts have created a climate of fear known for years in the studio and failed to be acted on for a long time.

According to the source, Dumont has been working to “improve himself,” although his past actions “are still very fresh in the mind of many.” As such, “some in the Quebec studio have asked not to work on Red because of his position on the project.”

Assassin’s Creed Codename Red will take place in Japan and will form part of Assassin’s Creed Infinity.
