Early Assassin's Creed Art Shows Female Assassin


A female protagonist has been a common recurring prediction for each subsequent Assassin’s Creed game. We’re still yet to get one. Although some of the multiplayer models have been female, the story mode protagonists have remained male.

These early concept art pieces, originally posted on Ubisoft’s Facebook page, show that the idea of a female assassin was one that existed right from the start of the process. These are concepts for the very first Assassin’s Creed game, originally drawn in 2004. Altair might have turned out quite different. It’s all quite willowy and slender with more than a taste of Ubisoft’s other big hero – the Prince of Persia.

    that would be quite cool to have a woman as the main character. I wonder how Desmond would take it

    That would be cool, I saw an article not sure if it was on here, with an interview with one of the heads of Assassin’s Creed, saying they wanted to make the next assassin female but it wouldn’t fit in with the american civil war. But hopefully they would put a female assassin in 4

    Some of those pics look great, I also really like some of the AC fan art, many of them show female assassins.

      I think that would be really cool. I’m excited for this American civil war era setting, but I do like Victorian London it’s not done enough.
