No Female Protagonist In Assassin’s Creed III


The setting’s a bit of a pain for female characters, says the game’s creative director Alex Hutchinson.

Hutchinson also said that folks within the development tier wanted to see it happen, however it’s not possibly in Assassin’s Creed III, as “the history of the American Revolution is the history of men,” he said.

“There are a few people, like John Adams’ wife. They tried very hard in the TV series to not make it look like a bunch of dudes, but it really is a bunch of dudes,” he added, speaking to Kotaku. And although Ubisoft Montreal doesn’t mind deviating from story every now and again, women in the overall plot would simply feel, well, “wrong”.

“It felt like, if you had all these men in every scene and [a female assassin is] secretly, stealthily in crowds of dudes, it starts to feel kind of wrong. People would stop believing it,” he said.

Assassin’s Creed III sees a release October 30th for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC.
