Michel Ancel, former developer behind the critically acclaimed Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil franchises, recently left Ubisoft and subsequently departed from all things video games. Amidst the accusations surrounding poor leadership, Ancel has taken to Instagram to address matters and has said that the accusations are not true. The news about his apparent actions first surfaced from French publication Liberation that shared some colleagues’ views on the way Ancel treated his employees with some citing that Ancel was rude and dismissive; some believe that the production for Beyond Good & Evil 2 has been halted because of his actions.

Ancel wrote the following in response to the report from Liberation:

Take few people with rage and jealousy and let them speak in the name of hundreds. Publish the news fast so that it combines with sexual harassment from other news at Ubi soft. I this serious? Is this what you expect from a national newspaper. I will fight for the truth because such accusations are a shame. I worked hard on every of my projects and always had respect for the teams. The accusations are wrong.

I left Video Games because I was exhausted, this is not a way for me to escape any responsibilities. Like many other people, I participate to the independent investigation because I still believe in truth and justice
