Random thought popped in my head: what if there was an Assassin's Creed game where the main character is a woman? There is a whole lot of room for unexplored territory if it were in the perspective of a female assassin. I feel like the female psyche would be one of the things that would keep the franchise staying fresh, as a chick would be a good emotionally grounding ingredient to the hefty storytelling AC is known for.

Hey, maybe Desmond's mother is an Assassin too and she could either be the Animus user or the first character to be featured in a modern day world of AC. (Has Ubisoft really said that they would never ever make a game as such? I want sources!)

I don't know, just throwing it out there.

Changing a series from having a male dominant set of lead characters to a female one doesn't usually work out too well in such cases the Karate Kid LOL

But I think if Ubisoft did this, they would know what they were doing and continue to build on the franchise.

Isn't the main character in the Vita game female? (too lazy to look up) As for an official title, I generally don't care what gender the main character is so long as they fit and are likable.

Yes.

Handhelds don't count.

Well the NEXT game is most likely going to be a continuation of Connor's story, but I'm all for female characters in my Assassin's Creed.

Like many people have predicted, Shao Jun is a good candidate for a future ancestor.

No thank you, not interested.

I'm a man, and I prefer to play as a male, and to be honest, I think most casuals (people that don't hang around forums too much and stuff) do too.

I know a lot of people online seem very open to the idea of a female lead character, or at least you get a choice of playing as either a male or female. I just don't think it'd sit well with a majority of the players having a female-only option though.

I don't mind either way. I would probably prefer a female character for a change of pace.

That Chinese assassin we hear about seeking Ezio's aid sounds like fun.

Well shaojun is on the time of Ezio,so technically she died already in connor's time.Well if somehow ubisoft can pull off an amazing Plot twist,I consider it.
