I’m so pissed we’re doing the half male assassin/half female assassin campaign again in an Assassin’s Creed game.
Look, I’m pretty sure Valhalla was meant to have a male story-lead from the start, and it feels like them all of a sudden announcing its half and half makes it seem like some lame attempt to make them seem progressive in the wake of the Ubisoft scandals.
I’m not demanding that Valhalla be canon female-led (because like I said, we can kinda tell it wasn’t supposed to be), I’m saying I’m not going to believe Ubisoft is progressive until they let a canon female lead be the cover hero, the trailer hero, and dare I say it, the ONLY hero of the game.
They did Kassandra dirty. They did Aya dirty.
The next female assassin they make needs to be the one who finally leads her own game.
No half and half because you’re afraid your sexist fans won’t buy it if they don’t get to play a guy, no choose your own path for the same reason.
That’s when I’ll know Ubisoft has gotten their act straight. When they no longer fear the portion of their fans who are misogynist and let a woman be the whole game.
Just one hero in her own game.
