David Polfeldt had previously stepped down from his function as studio supervisor of Ubisoft Huge, primarily based in Malmö, Sweden, with the intent of returning to Ubisoft in a “strategic function” following a sabbatical. Polfeldt as a substitute appears to have modified plans and left the corporate fully based on a latest interview with Nathan Brown for his Hit Points newsletter (thanks, VGC).
Ubisoft Huge (AKA Huge Leisure) is the studio behind The Division, in addition to Ubisoft’s upcoming Star Wars and Avatar game. Huge has largely averted the sexual harassment and office toxicity allegations levied towards high-level Ubisoft workers, and Polfeldt’s departure appears fully unrelated to that controversy.
Polfeldt had beforehand acknowledged that he “felt an amazing sense of completion,” as if he “had achieved every part” he as soon as dreamed of relating to the expansion and accomplishments of Huge. Within the Hit Factors interview, he cited Huge’s, properly, huge progress as a part of the rationale he moved on: Polfeldt expressed that his administration fashion is a greater match for a smaller workforce, versus the now 750-person studio.
Polfeldt mentioned that he’ll go “wherever the wind takes him” relating to his personal future, whereas Huge continues work on its slate of massive initiatives.
