Okay, I’ve been thinking about this a lot and I want it to be reached out for everyone in twitter and tumblr complaining about Ubisoft’s lame excuse.

I don’t know why, but after thinking a lot, I find such excuse to be really suspicious. It just doesn’t make sense. If you noticed, AC has, probably, many amazing female characters like Claudia, Lucrezia, Caterina and countless others… Not to mention Aveline, the only female protagonist in the games. Even though most were simply secondary characters, you have to admit that some definitely had a big impact in the story.  I kinda noticed how they how felt distinct from one another, how different their costumes can be, how they can be really strong as women. That’s what I noticed in the Renaissance games and the first one at least (I don’t know much about Revelations, so I can’t really tell about that one)

But then there came the latest AC games. AC3 brought up that supposedly women didn’t have any influence in the American Revolution, which they are continuing to insist on now with Unity. Thankfully, Black Flag did include Mary Read, one of the most famous female pirates of all times, so this sudden ”we are lazy therefore we cannot animate women properly” is a bit strange.

Maybe I’m the only one that feels like they are not stating the truth? Maybe they’re making up this excuse until the game comes out, maybe they won’t reveal much until the date approaches. However, I do have another theory.

Many mainstream AC fans don’t know about AC: Liberation, do they? I feel like Aveline’s whole story was Ubisoft testing out what could happen if they were more innovative. Perhaps that’s why they didn’t release a cinematic for it, they chose to make it less noticable, because we all know that putting a woman of colour as a protagonist is gonna piss off some racist bastards.

Think about it: Aveline and Connor are probably the protagonists that changed the whole tradition of the typical white protagonist in AC. And, by coincidence, both their games are considered, by the majority, the worst AC games. I don't think that's because people were mad about the racial diversity or the female lead, I think it's because of the gameplay and potencial that they had was wasted.

But I'm certain that there was at least someone complaining about Connor being native american, or Aveline being a black female protagonist. If you notice, actually, most female characters in media can't get passed through without someone saying at least one bad thing about her.

That doesn't happen with white male characters. And that's just wrong.

Look, maybe the reason because of all this no female lead in Unity comes from the trouble raised by Liberation. Of course Ubisoft doesn't want a monetary failure (Although, in my perspective, Liberation totally wasn't, I loved the concept of the story and Aveline in general), they want this new game to hit the sales. They don't want this game to be attacked with insults by some of the sexists that play these games.

I don't think this is the right way to handle conflict Ubisoft, but the truth is, it's kind of pointless for us freak out much about what they said. I understand you all want to punch Ubisoft in the face, but try to see the situation through different perspectives. Don't get me wrong here, I'm not supporting anyone, nor picking a side.

I'm just trying to find a reason to all of this. I hope I am right, otherwise, Ubisoft is just a bunch of sexist assholes.

Which, like a said, doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

Please, share this on tumblr so people can understand this: fourpurpleeyes12.tumblr.com/po…
I really want this to be reached out for everyone in the AC fandom that's annoyed about Ubisoft's excuse.
