Assassin's Creed Unity had to take in a lot of criticism after one of its executives said it has to work more to churn out female assassins in the upcoming game.
But, a new female assassin was discovered in the latest video that was posted by IGN. A female character was visible at 7:24 minutes in the video. HNGN argues that this could be the female character in the game.
This gains importance in light of how Ubisoft had to face the ire of fans after its executive's comments. Apart from the comment on the female character, he also said that in order to create a male assassin, animators had to create more than 8,000 animations.
The executive who made the comment was Alex Amanico, who is the creative director of the team. This came under a lot of criticism not only from fans but also from its former employees like Jonathan Cooper, who tweeted, saying creating such a character would be one or two day's work.
Ubisoft issued a statement after these criticisms. It defended saying that the game was focused on the story of its lead character, Arno. However, it also added that the franchise has showcased different characters like Aveline, Connor, Adewale and Altair. But it added that it will be looking "forward to introducing to some of the strong female characters in Assassin's Creed Unity."
