    Excuse me, but it takes TREMENDOUS talent to create bland and generic open worlds. Who else is going to copy paste towers and collectibles?

    I don't think people are seriously trying to weigh the merits of the employees. Rather, a lot of people are worried about losing their own jobs (understandably) and are also unhappy with their own jobs, so they don't want to celebrate stories about other people losing their jobs or being asked to work harder or in worse conditions. No one's doing serious math here.

      It's true, but it's too late. They needed to realize it 6 years ago. Instead of recognizing and accepting that it was time to stop making the same stale Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, and third person Tom Clancy shit filled with half asked loot grind cancer over and over and over, they should have come up with new IP and actually changed their gameplay formula. Instead they just kept cranking out the exact same game on repeat while failing to chase the battle royale trend multiple times in the background.

      Fuck Ubisoft. Let them die out already, their games are intolerable and the company spews their useless diversity hires all over the rest of the industry constantly.

      ubisoft workers are clearly not talented and have clearly been given too much creative freedom, just look at the fucking watch dogs sequels or immortals fenyx rising or hyperscape

      They kind of do.
      It's the direction their games take that is awful, microtransactions up the ass, hero shooters, Ubishit towers, shallow as fuck game design. All of that is dictated by management, the grunts simply execute. They still have the skilled workforce to make good games, as shown with Anno 1800

      they're not fucking making those game anymore though lmao, they haven't released one in two years and now the stock is cratering because the uncreative shits can't just make game

          >people somehow don't understand that every problem in society is almost entirely caused by someone's upper management
          ngmi

          it's caused by lack of upper management doing their jobs you dumb zoomer

          They do, 95% of the employees in a big company just do what they're told. If they're given good direction they can make good work, because they're mechanically competent, they can make a quality animation or a good model or a nice landscape or program a cool interaction, if they're told to, but it's not their job to make decisions about what to make, and they aren't allowed to even if they wanted. They have to do what they're assigned because if that job doesn't get done, and done as described so the other 30 moving parts that interact with it will function, the game doesn't get finished.
          The redditor is right that the problem is leadership, even if he's making the common mistake of assigning 100% of agency to the single individual at the top of the ladder. In reality, while the top boss does have a disproportionate amount of influence, as you'd expect, he's never going to be the only influence. There's an entire ecosystem of lesser bosses that are also doing a shit job in aggregate, both in terms of instructing their employees moment to moment causing inefficiency and confusion inside of projects, and in broad direction level decisions like choosing which projects to prioritize and which practices to embrace as a company.
          You wouldn't fix Ubisoft by replacing all the peons with different peons, if that would work they'd have already done it since the workers are basically interchangeable, the cancer is in the people making decisions, starting at the top and probably encompassing basically every management and HR employee. And those people are never going to decide to replace themselves, which is why this kind of death spiral is very hard to stop.

        That's the point I'm making. They're not making them because of shitty direction. If the upper management at Ubishit fucked off or the talent fucked off elsewhere where their skills could actually be put to use, there would still be good games made. But to deny that talented people do work for Ubi is simply incorrect

          no they stopped making games because 95% of upper management got metooed, it's a lack of upper management that's the problem

          you let ubisoft devs be "creative" and they'll come up with watch dogs 2

          >it's caused by lack of upper management doing their jobs you dumb zoomer
          The fact that 90% of every company's upper management is not doing their jobs IS the problem, you dumb idiot.

          my point was it's caused by upper management not telling these pricks to knuckle down and churn out slop, not because they're meddling too much and telling devs to make open world ubisoft slop

          the role of executives is to wrangle creatives into making good products, not letting a bunch of mindless drones fail at being "creative" which is what you and shillup seem to think the job of management is

    There's some truth to. Ubisoft famously had a board of people whose jobs it were to micromanage the development of every game and make sure they were homogenized and to crush any creativity and ideas that weren't already a known quantity. Would developers have saved the company left more to their own devices? That's debatable but the games certainly couldn't have been any worse.

      >we need a new open world action adventure game
      "Alright so we're going to downscale the open world in such a manner that we can jam pack it with meaningful detail instead of making it fuckhuge with repeated activities and assets that stretch our team too thin. Think of the average size of our open world, and cut the size in half by about 50% so we can focus on populating it with memorable NPCs, landmarks, and stories."
      >and it has to have a live service model
      "Players can come back to the game and they will find new NPC events once in a while. Of course we will make certain kinds of quests evergreen to keep players around long enough to see these."
      >and it has to be story driven
      "Meaningful NPC quests that are doled out kinda like serialized television episodes where there are no 'B plots' even if there might be a little bit of filler here and there."
      >and it has to integrate online multiplayer
      "We will have specific raid-esque missions that require 2-4 players to complete. Also, players can goof off with other players and explore the open world freely."
      >and it has to feature empowering queer and female representation
      "Make memorable and well written characters that happen to be queer and female, do not make them being queer and female their entire character to fill a quota. Adults play our games, they can smell when you're bullshitting them."
      >and it needs to have twitch and social media integration
      "There will be twitch chat integration in a special setting that can be toggled on and off in options where the players can play a sort of Dungeon Master that cause events of their choosing to play out for the twitch streamer. As for social media, there is a side quest in the game that involves taking pictures in very precarious and creative places where the players give a short summary of what they went through to get there."
