In a comment to the GameSpot portal, the company said that the layoffs took place as part of the restructuring.

"Over the past few months, all Ubisoft teams have been looking for ways to optimize operations and increase efficiency in order to be successful in the long run. As a result, we announced further restructuring of the global publishing and Asia-Pacific divisions. We will take a more efficient and flexible approach to them, which will allow us to adapt them to changes in the market. The layoffs affected a total of 45 people. This decision was not easy for us, and we will provide full support to the affected colleagues. We also want to express our deep gratitude and respect to them for their contribution to the development of the company," Ubisoft said.

Ubisoft announced the restructuring in January 2023. Then the French publisher spoke about financial problems and plans to reduce operating costs by 200 million euros in two years.

In the financial report for the half-year ended September 30, 2023, Ubisoft announced that its staff had decreased from 20,729 to 19,410 employees over the year. In November, she conducted a new round of layoffs. At that time, 124 more employees left the company, mostly from Canadian studios.
