Ubisoft Montpellier, the developer behind Beyond Good and Evil 2, is reportedly experiencing more development issues as a result of a significant leadership shakeup. Kotaku reports that the managing director, Guillaume Carmona, is no longer with the company, and the reasons for his departure are unclear. Sources also stated that the development team is facing an investigation by local authorities due to a high number of developers experiencing burnout and going on sick leave. In response, Ubisoft has arranged third-party wellbeing assessments to determine where additional support is needed.
