Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Creative Director Ashraf Ismail has announced that he is stepping down.

Ashraf Ismail, the creative director of Assassins Creed Valhalla, announced his departure today on Twitter.

According to Ismail, he is moving away from his role to focus on personal matters.

The personal issues he refers to are allegations of infidelity that surfaced on Twitter earlier this week.

In a statement to Eurogamer, Ubisoft said it is taking a leave of absence, and during this time the team will remain “committed to delivering a great game.”

Ismail also worked on Assassin’s Creed: Origins as game director, and was the director of the single-player game for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.
