Quantic Dream Addresses The “Smear Campaign” Against The Studio; Releases Strong Worded Statement
Quantic Dream issues an official statement responding to former employees’ allegations.
Quantic Dream’s upcoming title, Detroit: Become Human, is one of the most anticipated titles of 2018. However, recently, two former employees were involved in several allegations and accusations towards Quantic Dream for overworking their staff, toxic behaviour towards staff and more.
The studio finally issued an official statement to address the issue once and for all, discussing the legal procedures that took and are taking place so far.
Since January 14, 2018, Quantic Dream has been the subject of a veritable smear campaign by a few media outlets, based on slanderous remarks whose reliability and origin of the sources raise questions.
We categorically refute the allegations against the studio, its employees, its leaders. We hope that these unfounded attacks and the propagation of completely erroneous information resulting from it will cease in order to protect our employees.
We reiterate that, to date, we have not heard of any complaints of harassment and discrimination.
We confirm that two employees who entered the Industrial Court in 2017 were dismissed of all their claims by judgment on 19.01.2018 and that a third judgment in this case is in dispute.
Several other legal actions are also underway to defend the reputation of our studio and to save the jobs of a French SME in the forefront in its field. We are confident in justice and hope that it can be decided quickly, in a calm and peaceful atmosphere.
