The latest issue of Xbox 360 World had an article speaking with Sébastien Puel, the producer of the Assassins Creed series. Puel talked about the possibility of a female character in the next game “We’ve had discussions on that very topic, It could be really interesting but we’d need to find the right time period and place for that.”
“Where would that make sense? We don’t want to just decide we want to change and have a female hero as the first inspiration is always the time period, but if you’re talking about, say, World War II the economies in England and France were run by women because the men were off fighting.“
Creative Director Patrice Fortier also added “What’s so great about Assassin’s Creed is that we can just expand and expand … I’m often asked if we’re doing a third game after Assassins Creed II… I mean, we could do 35 of these.” Now, we can probably expect more than the proposed trilogy this series was proposed to be a couple years back.
