THE BUZZ: Ubisoft creative director Alex Hutchinson has revealed that there is no female lead in Assassin’s Creed III because the American Revolution was a time of men.

Hutchinson said that the idea of a female assassin was “always up in the air” and that “lots of people want it,” but the time period makes it too difficult.

“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.

EGM’s TAKE: Ezio and Altair walk around the town wearing armor and carrying weapons, nobody bats an eyelid, the players don’t stop believing, so why would a woman be any different. If she’s wearing lose fitting assassin robes and a hood, how could you even tell it was a woman? All you’re supposed to be is a blade taking down enemies before they realize what happened. We personally see no reason as to why you couldn’t have a female lead and in fact we’d welcome it, would shake the series up a bit.
