Ubisoft Is Helping Rehouse Its Employees Who Live In Ukraine

Ubisoft Is Helping Rehouse Its Employees Who Live In Ukraine

Ubisoft has had its ups and downs of late. The developer behind classic series' such as Assassin's Creed and Far Cry, has been doubling down super hard on NFT and blockchain gaming, even though fans and staff alike have pushed back. In contrast, Ubisoft are joining the long list of game companies trying to do something positive in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Ubisoft have two studios in Ukraine. One in the capital Kyiv and one on the coast in Odesa. Not long after Russia began its attack on Ukraine, Ubisoft sent out a message of support to its staff and players in the country, claiming to be "fully mobilised" to provide employees with additional assistance. In the statement they also claimed "safety is our primary concern" and that financial support will be available to its staff.

Now speaking to The Loadout, Ubisoft has outlined the support it is providing its staff. In terms of financial support, Ubisoft has given staff in Ukraine their upcoming paychecks in advance of the usual date. It also claims to have provided staff with alternate housing in neighbouring countries, though it did not clarify where this housing is.

Ubisoft have a number of other studios in Eastern Europe and it is possible that employees are being rehoused in these areas. The closest office to its Kyiv branch is in Warsaw, Poland. The Odesa branch has three other studios in proximity, two in Romania and one in Bulgaria. For employees to move accommodation near to these offices they would have to travel at least ten hours by car.

Ubisoft also has an office in Moscow, Russia, though it has not yet commented on if and how this branch requires assistance, and if Ubisoft will provide support.
