Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla creative director Ashraf Ismail received a serious complaint, who was forced to resign after being accused of sexual abuse.
This according to the Venturebeat site is related to Ismail’s lies about his marital status, since he would have deceived several people saying that he was single (in circumstances that he is married), to have relations with them.
This person is married. When I’ve started a relationship with you, I know he’s married. This is why he doesn & # 39; t want to talk on the phone or facetime or have things sent to his home. His marriage has been confirmed by 3 people. I was with him for a year on and off before finding out. pic.twitter.com/eomqLCXZTu

“I am giving up on my beloved project to adequately address the personal problems of my life,” Ismail wrote on Twitter. “The lives of my family and mine are shattered. I am very sorry for all the wounded in this. “
In a brief statement, the Ubisoft people did not explain the reasons for the departure of their now former creative director, nor did they provide further details.
Ashraf Ismail withdraws from the project to take a leave of absence. The development team is committed to delivering a great game at Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, ”they reported.
Ismail, who closed his Twitter account, took advantage of one last instance on the social network to leave one last message:
“There are hundreds of talented and passionate people striving to build an experience for you who don’t deserve to be associated with this.” Ismail wrote on Twitter . “I wish you the best.”
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be based on the pillars of the history and mythology of the Vikings: the hard life in the Nordic countries, the assaults and looting, long sea voyages, brutal battles and a lot of mythology.
Ubisoft has not detailed the release date for this game that will debut on Xbox Series X and Playstation 5.
