Un interview for La Presse, a French newspaper, ended badly for the CEO of Ubisoft Yves Guillemot, who let himself go in a decidedly unhappy comment. In response to questions that have been asked about the toxicity problems quite well-known inside the company, which had entered among the other scandals in the world of video games of 2020, Guillemot said:
Creating a video game is not easy. There are “challenges” to overcome, and from time to time there is a lot of tension […] to create, you need a little friction.

The whole is worsened by the statements of several journalists, like Ethan Gach of Kotaku who says:
