French video gaming company Ubisoft said it has launched an investigation into sexual harassment and harassment claims against some of its employees.
In Statement Released on its website on Thursday, it said it was “really sorry” about the allegations.
The allegations also targeted managers in Brazil, Bulgaria and the United States, some of whom had been in the alleged incidents for years.
“We have started investigating the allegations with the support of specialized external consultants,” the company said.
“We are dedicated to creating an inclusive and safe environment for our teams, players and communities,” Ubisoft said. “It is clear that we have fallen short of this in the past. We should do better.”
When contacted by AFP on Friday, Ubisoft officials were unable to say whether anyone had been sacked following the allegations.
