Haas

Haas joined Ubisoft in 2020 amid allegations of misconduct throughout the family-run French publisher. She oversaw the removal of Ubisoft Singapore head Hugues Ricour for misconduct in November 2020 and launched a “Women in Production” mentorship program while at the company. Before she stepped down at the end of 2021 to pursue other projects, Haas led 45 global studios and the successful launches for “Watch Dogs: Legion” and “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla” on next-gen consoles in November 2020, then in late 2021 presided over the releases of “Far Cry 6,” “Riders Republic” and “Just Dance 2022.” Ever mindful of shifting gaming trends, she also spurred development on free-to-play competitive titles derived from Ubisoft IP, such as upcoming shooter “XDefiant,” based on Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy games, and “Assassin’s Creed Infinity.”
