Ubisoft has suspended two executives following allegations of misconduct, according to a report.

According to a Bloomberg report, Ubisoft has suspended vice presidents Tommy Francois and Maxime Beland. Both have been accused of “at least three claims of misconduct.”

Ubisoft has reportedly also suspended several other employees accused of abuse and misconduct. The company has also hired external law firms to investigate the allegations and is forming an internal group in order to find “better solutions and tools to detect, report and resolve” any incident or serious problem without delay, states Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier (thanks, Gamasutra).

Earlier this week, Ubisoft issued a statement pertaining to sexual harassment and assault allegations against employees. The company said it was investigating after allegations of sexual assault and harassment were made against employees last weekend.
