Female Lead in Future Assassin's Creed "Wouldn't Be Surprising"

IGN - After the announcement of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, with its fascinating new setting, size, and Far Cry-esque exploration, I couldn't help but wonder one thing:

Another dude? Really?

I asked Black Flag's director, Ashraf Ismail, why we've only seen men in the leading roles of mainline Assassin's Creed games. "It's a bit of a tough question," he told IGN. (Ashraf Ismail, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Good. I liked Aveline in the Vita game.
Snookies12  +   949d ago
Yeah, there already has been one...

I know they were talking about main series lead characters but it is surprising the article never mentions Aveline at all.

Though it's funny she was a better character than Connor in AC3.
MattS  +   949d ago
Agreed. It's a pity that character wasn't given an AAA-budget, because I came away from Liberation really wanting more from her than I got.

how about they do a black character and call him django that would actually be interesting. do this for the wild west/ civil war era.
Jek_Porkins  +   949d ago
I seriously doubt they ever do a female lead in the main series. Not sure why there is such a stigma on female leads, but I wouldn't mind it.
GraveLord  +   949d ago
Vita says hi.
jessupj  +   949d ago
Female character would be a refreshing change. As long as she had a likable personality.

I hope the next AC game after AC4 is Aveline in the french revolution
