Reuben Williams-Smith of SpawnFirst "weighs in on" the Ubisoft controversy.
Can we just get the facts straight about this controversy? 1: Ubisoft have already made an AC with a female. So get over it. 2: Its a creative decision 3: Yes it would take an unnecessary amount of time and effort to suddenly appease the masses and make one of the coop Assassins a female, and to make a convincing well developed female who wasnt just a reskinned AI with the same animations, but then... 4: You DON'T play as a female anyway. Everyone playing coop will appear as the main character ARNO on their own screen 5: Why is this suddenly such a big issue in regards to Ubisoft when the characters in their games/franchises/series are the most diverse in any other game franchise to date. I'm all for diversity in games, coming from someone whn a cultural minority, but this is an absurd issue. Efforts are better spent in criticizing developed for over-priced DLC, or broken releases.
Agree with everything.So why doesn't Call of duty,Battlefield,Batman,Hitman etc. get a female protagonist? The same reason AC U doesn't have it.
