The Humble Legacy of Creative montage started in the late 80s and the team eventually grew into one of the most influential game studios.

The developers have produced some memorable titles in the industry such as the very famous Total War series, Alien Isolation and Hyenas among others. However, the studio is now under fire for serious allegations that have surfaced in the past. Creative Assembly has officially responded to the claims.


Big takeaway:

  • Several current and former Creative Assembly employees have raised allegations of abuse and sexual misconduct.

  • The team has expressed condolences to those affected and asks the victims to contact the CA team via email.
  • The game studio has launched an investigation through a third party to investigate the matter.

Many former and current employees of the company Creative Assembly have emerged with serious claims such as abuse and sexual misconduct.

“We have been made aware of very disturbing and serious allegations regarding a former CA employee. We recognize how important, and often difficult, it is for individuals to talk about these experiences – and we welcome those who feel empowered to do so.” The answer corresponds to the testimony of the employees.

It goes on, “We are committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for our people and making sure they are heard. Obviously we need to do better. We are investigating this matter through a third party to fully understand what happened.”

In another tweet, Creative Assembly also quoted the following: “If you are a former CA employee and would like to share your experiences in support of our research, please contact whistle.blowing@creative-assembly.com.CA insists that the victims contact the team and reveal everything in the above-mentioned email.

SEGA has not yet commented at the time of writing. Time will tell how the situation develops and what appropriate measures are taken against the perpetrator. The community has responded positively to the team taking action, but some people have expressed disgust at waiting so long for the investigation to begin.
