AC4 director: Another leading lady 'wouldn't be surprising' in the future

Posted by aisiy on March 5th, 2013

The Assassin's Creed team at Ubisoft never imagined placing a woman in the Diablo 3 gold lead role during the era of the Kenways, which spans Assassin's Creed 3 and Black Flag, director Ashraf Ismail told IGN.

"Really early on, we decided to tell the story of the Kenways, " Ismail said. "So we already had in place the idea to tell Edward, Haytham and Connor. This was actually years ago, we had this. " He continued, "We actually never thought, 'Could this be a woman? '"

Historically, there weren't many famous female pirates, Ismail said, and he didn't want players to fixate on that detail. Still, there's a lot of history between pirates and now, and Assassin's Creed may explore a leading lady in another, main game. The lead character of Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation for Vita was a woman, and that story fed into directly the prime Assassin's Creed 3 narrative. Ubisoft may continue this trend with future games.

"I would say it wouldn't be surprising to see a female assassin coming up in a mainline Assassin's Creed, " Ismail said. "But for us, for AC4, it was always Edward. "

If choosing the gender of protagonists was a business decision, it would fall to Ubisoft's brand team, and Ismail said he didn't know what they were cooking up for the "next few games. "

"But the concept of a female assassin, I can tell you it's not a no-no; it's not something we're trying to avoid at all. "

Epic Games art director Chris Perna, recently sounded off about selling a female protagonist, saying "it's tough to justify something like that, " at least from a business standpoint.
