Ubisoft’s ‘Avatar’ title’s managing director steps down

The studio behind the upcoming Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has witnessed a significant change as its managing director has stepped down.

David Polfeldt, who worked on Star Wars and the current Avatar title, has decided to take a break.

The implications of Polfeldt’s exit from ‘Avatar.’

Ubisoft Managing Director over Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, David Polfeldt, has stepped down for a shorter period.

Ubisoft Massive is also known as Massive Entertainment.

Before his exit, the MD was working on two big games. While one is the open-world Star Wars title, the other is the Avatar entry.

However, Polfeldt has ensured that he will return in six months with a “strategic” role.

“Seventeen years ago, I joined a small Malmö-based indie-studio in a role that the founder defined as ‘Mister FixIt.’”

For those who are still doubtful over Ubisoft’s upcoming projects, they don’t have to worry extensively.

Polfeldt is not leaving the company as he has clarified that he will return after six months to a new strategic position. It means that Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will be going ahead smoothly with its overall development since it’s still far away from a release.

Meanwhile, his replacement is already coming soon but not yet revealed. Massive is likely to come up with an announcement.

Well, there’s another story making rounds on the internet as of now related to Polfeldt’s exit.

His departure is currently getting linked to workplace harassment and abuse. As per some of the reports, there have been lots of cases related to Ubisoft. Several executives have left the company already.

But there’s no clear information, as of now, about whether such reports are authentic or not.
