Female Assassin Not In Assassin’s Creed 3

Assassin’s Creed 3 won’t feature a female Assassin. Fans of the Assassin’s Creed series have long wanted to play as a female Assassin ancestor via the lead’s Animus exploits into the past. Wherever in history Assassin’s Creed 3 may lead us, Ubisoft has confirmed it will not include playing as a female character on missions.

To quote Ubisoft Montreal’s creative director Alex Hutchinson about Assassin’s Creed 3:

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • “It’s always up in the air. I think lots of people want it. 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.

    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.

    I suppose once again we’ll be going to the game’s multiplayer modes to be able to play as a female characters (albeit Templars). It’s a shame Ubisoft — who normally are quite keen to twist history to fit their storytelling to mess with our minds — this time weren’t able to do so to fit female Assassin’s in. I would’ve liked to have heard Desmond’s “Well… that’s a new experience!” Animus reaction! 😆

    The Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Collector’s Edition in Europe included special artwork on cards that were interpretations of various artists about the Assassin’s Creed universe. One of them saw Will Murai draw a skimpy female Assassin, which is hardly representative of a stealthy Assassin, but it’s the only official artwork made so far…

    Assassin’s Creed 3 will see Desmond visit the American Revolution period as another of his male ancestors, this time the Native American Assassin Connor.
    Here’s his profile video that highlights the new hero’s background.

    Assassin’s Creed III is set for release on October 31st, 2012 on the Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3, with a Wii U & PC release following later on (hopefully still this year).

    Do you still want to play as a female Assassin in future AC games?
