PC Gamer Deleting Their Articles, Failed To Disclose Ubisoft PR Ethics Violation

By Mitch Walters in Articles

PC Gamer Ubisoft Ethics PR Journalist

Many articles which have been seen by hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of viewers have been deleted from the long-standing publication PC Gamer which has come under fire recently as a journalist who wrote about Assassin’s Creed favorably a large number of times has been discovered to be the perpetrator of a severe ethics violation. Despite the fact that the video games industry mainly goes unregulated to this sort of thing, nepotism and favoritism exists in all segments of business – eventually things can go poorly if proper disclosure is not made to immediately address bias.

It has been stated by many critics of PC Gamer’s actions to delete these articles that if connections between authors and their subject matter can be stated up front to the reader there will be no cause for alarm after the fact. Still, the fact that sales have been influenced by this author’s work without any reasonable warning of the bias that inevitably existed, PC Gamer has had their reputation tarnished and will be looked at with a skeptical eye from here on out. This case is the latest in a string of ethics violations that have been revealed after a massive outrage took place due to the poor quality of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Unity which released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on November 11, 2014.

Below, the criticisms of Total Biscuit who was named Trending Gamer at The Video Game Awards in 2014:
