They told him:

Ubisoft higher ups: "Moving forward we don't really have time for "art" anymore, its just going to be whiteboxes at launch and we'll rely on users to create mods that add the textures, etc. That coo?"

Raphael Lacoste: *already driving away in his car*

Interesting that he joined Jade studio, even tho i'm not excited about that GaaS, but maybe there is a chance it would be something cool
