Ubisoft experienced a massive developer exodus in Canada

Ubisoft experienced a massive developer exodus in Canada

Ubisoft recently announced a salary increase for its developers in Canada and there seems to be a reason for that. Many of them began to leave, especially in this country. Canada is a challenging region to run for developers, as many large companies have studios there, and if a company does something wrong, the developers move quickly. Worse when experienced developers start leaving.

Now this has happened to Ubisoft, which has experienced a massive exodus of developers from Ubisoft Montreal (Assassin’s Creed) and Ubisoft Toronto (Far Cry 6), which together have lost more than 120 developers in the past six months. For example, 5 of the top 25 developers of Far Cry 6 or 12 of the top 50 developers of Assassin remain.

Although Ubisoft Montreal has more than 3,000 employees and Toronto about a thousand, if some project managers leave, it could cause problems. In the end, according to the information, this happened and some projects slowed down or stopped.

As for the reasons for leaving, the biggest reason was mainly competition, which is obvious given the location, but some also offer a lower salary or Poor management accusations of toxic environment and creative management of the company.

This may also have been the reason why Ubisoft announced the Splinter Cell remodel prematurely, as it immediately attracted employees.
