Far Cry Lead leaves Ubisoft after 10 years

Far Cry executive producer Dan Hay has announced his departure from Ubisoft after working there for over 10 years.

This news comes over Video Games Chronicle, who reports that Hay will officially leave the company behind Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy’s The Division tomorrow. Ubisoft told VGC however, that Hay did not reveal what was in store for him next.

“After more than 10 years at Ubisoft, Dan Hay has announced that he will start a new chapter in his professional life and leave on November 12th,” said Ubisoft. “Dan was the Executive Director of Far Cry and built an incredible multidisciplinary team to produce one of the most popular games in Ubisoft history.

Although Dan has not yet announced where his path will take him, we are confident that he will offer him the new challenges and experiences he seeks and deserves. We thank Dan for his many contributions over the years and wish him all the best for the future. “

Ubisoft says the Far Cry team will initially be led by Sandra Warren in Montreal along with other producers and directors. As noted by VGC, Hay was most hands-on with the Far Cry series in Far Cry 5, where he was the creative director. However, he was a producer for Far Cry 3, 4, Blood Dragon, Primal and New Dawn. He leaves tomorrow as executive producer for the Far Cry franchise.

It’s important to note that Ubisoft is reportedly going through an internal change right now, as a report revealed abuse at the studios and an “unsatisfied” response to leadership’s handling of the gaming industry’s #MeToo movement in the summer of 2020. There is no suggestion that Hay’s exit was related, however, and reports of conditions within Ubisoft have not identified Hay as a problematic executive within the company.
