Assassin's Creed III's Setting Makes Female Characters "A Pain"

Assassin's Creed 3 will likely not feature any female assassins, according to creative director Alex Hutchinson. And it’s all to do with the setting.

“I think lots of people want it," said Hutchinson. However, "In this period it's been a bit of a pain. The history of the American Revolution is the history of men. There are a few people, like John Adams' wife. They tried very hard in the TV series to not make it look like a bunch of dudes, but it really is a bunch of dudes."

Of course, the Assassin’s Creed series isn’t always 100% historically faithful, so Hutchinson and his team could find a way. However, he reckons the inclusion of female assassins would cause further problems.

"It felt like, if you had all these men in every scene and you're secretly, stealthily in crowds of dudes [as a female assassin], it starts to feel kind of wrong. People would stop believing it."

Looks unlikely we’ll be able to get our lady killer on then, though Hutchinson adds that they haven’t completely ruled out the idea, saying that a final decision is currently “up in the air.”
