Following disagreements with new owner Vivendi, Gameloft has announced the resignation of its board.
"The board cannot accept to simply execute the decisions of a majority shareholder whose strategic vision and managerial values it does not share," read a statement issued by Gameloft ahead of a shareholders' meeting.
As of today, Gameloft's former finance chief Alexandre de Rochefort has been appointed as interim head of the company and its subsidiaries, following a proposal from Vivendi.
The exact nature of this clash of values remains unclear, but it is a far cry from the "great collective adventure" promised by the French conglomerate following its hostile takeover.
The media giant now owns 95.94% of Gameloft's share capital after offering €8 per share - considerably more than what they were worth - but its plans for driving the company forward are up for debate.
