Ubisoft creative boss Manceau to leave role after 14 months

The chief creative officer at Ubisoft, Igor Manceau, is to leave the company in November of this year.

In a press release, the French publishing giant said that this departure was for personal reasons. It will come 14 months after his appointment back in September 2021.

By way of replacement, Ubisoft is opening a new Creative Office to support its development and portfolio strategy.

“In a fast-moving industry, it’s essential that we continue to adapt. I am grateful for Igor’s contribution to refining Ubisoft’s creative approach and for his commitment to bringing fresh ideas that level up the way we create,” Ubisoft CEO and co-founder Yves Guillemot said.

“An exemplary leader, Igor has set the foundations for a new organization that will allow Ubisoft to successfully deliver on its content strategy, with new processes and clearer roles and responsibilities.”

Manceau added: "Over the last 24 years I got the chance to meet and work with talented and inspiring teams around the world. I am grateful for the opportunity to have taken part in this fantastic adventure. I am confident in Ubisoft’s potential to continue surprising and delighting players for years to come."
