Ubisoft Entertainment SA said three of its highest-ranking executives are leaving the video-game publisher and that it’s planning a major overhaul following dozens of reports and allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse at the company.

The most notable departure is that of Serge Hascoët, the chief creative officer, who was responsible for shepherding all of Ubisoft’s blockbuster franchises, including Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry. In a press release Saturday, Ubisoft said his resignation takes effect immediately.
