Ubisoft Rumored To Restructure Their Creative Team

If the rumors are true, then it looks like next week we'll be seeing a massive change at Ubisoft with their Paris-based creative team. According to Video Games Chronicle, next week we will be getting an announcement from the company in regards to how their team will run in the foreseeable future. If you're not familiar with how Ubisoft works, the creative team is a group of about 100 people who write and dictate the direction of all their titles. They don't create the games themselves, but they do take on a multitude of things from scriptwriting and storylines all the way down to character development and design. The shakeup is coming after the company had a less-than-stellar 2019.

According to the report, after the performances of The Division 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint didn't meet expectations, along with the delays of Watch Dogs Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine, some people at the top decided it was time for a change. What kind of change will be interesting to see, as it could be anything from different people taking over to simplifying the system. But according to VGC, it's primarily being done so that Ubisoft's software line-up is "more varied". We'll see what happens to the section come Monday.
