Ubisoft CEO Reportedly Laid Responsibility for Company's Success on Staff

"The ball is in your court," he said after canceling several titles.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot reportedly told employees the ball was in their court to get the company "back on the path to success" after canceling several unannounced projects and delaying Skull and Bones once again.

In an email sent to staff and viewed by Kotaku, he laid responsibility for delivering high-quality games on time on the workers, at the same time asking for their commitment and urging them to be strategic with their spending and initiatives.

"Today more than ever, I need your full energy and commitment to ensure we get back on the path to success," the email said. "I am also asking that each of you be especially careful and strategic with your spending and initiatives, to ensure we’re being as efficient and lean as possible."

As for future releases, Guillemot wrote: "The ball is in your court to deliver this line-up on time and at the expected level of quality, and show everyone what we are capable of achieving."

Disappointing results of Ubisoft's recent games Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and Just Dance 2023 led to cutting costs associated with upcoming and canceled games as well as operating budget over the next two years. Anonymous developers also say they see fewer backfills and fewer contracts getting renewed. In the fall, Ubisoft laid off some of its staff across the US.
