Update Ismail deleted his Twitter account.
As already confirmed in Ubisoft, Ismail’s departure is considered a vacation – he still remains an employee of the company.
Ismail did not specify what problems were being discussed, however, on June 21, one girl told on her Twitter that he was in a relationship with her despite the fact that he was married – she did not find out about this immediately.
She later showed a correspondence in which Ismail asks her to delete the messages and talk to him, however she appears to have refused.
The story did not receive widespread publicity, since many felt that such problems only concerned Ismail himself and the girl with whom he was in a relationship, and they should not be discussed in public.
Who will now replace Ismail as the creative director of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is unknown, but it is unlikely that his departure will greatly affect the project, since the development is already in the final stages.
Valhalla will be released at the end of 2020.
