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.

NFT? Lmao

It’s over Ubisoft where you guys been, Jesus.

Smok916d ago

Well you look at how many games are in development with NFT’s currently you can see they’re preparing for the next bull-run this Fall.

Man, I haven't even heard anyone mention NFTs in ages. NFTs are dead. The Guillemot family just keep finding ways to damage their business. They need to go.

Star Wars Outlawa has some real potential. I loved the Fallen Order games but the abundant timed jumps at times took me out of the narrative as they could be come frustrating. The branching options and status with factions looks great.

Prince of Persia 2026…REALLY? And that’s all they had for us…a candle.

Jesus. Imagine if they didn’t give it to a shitty support studio and tried to sell us a sloppy remake years ago

Now we have (no hate on quality here) two PoP games no one asked for. We could have been anticipating a Warrior Within remake by now.

LOL!! They should have even announced it. They should have just waited a year from now to announce it with some gameplay. Lame.

Terry_B33d ago

Sorry for everyone who watched this ;)

Elda33d ago

No surprises just updates on existing games & games that have already been announced. A lame show.

The "could have been an email" type of show.
