A quick recap: Ubisoft released some DLC for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey that turned previously gay or bisexual characters straight. There’s a bit more to it but that is essentially what happened, no matter what choices you had made previously in the game you ended up in a heterosexual relationship and had a baby.
Understandably this upset a lot of people forcing Ubisoft to apologise numerous times and they have now taken further steps as outlined below.
After hearing player feedback and discussing within the development team we are making changes to a cutscene and some dialogue in Shadow Heritage to better reflect the nature of the relationship for players selecting a non-romantic storyline. These changes, along with renaming a trophy/achievement, are being made now and will be implemented in an upcoming patch.
We’ve also been carefully looking at the next episode, Bloodline, to ensure the paths that players experience mirror the choices they make in game.
As I have said previously, I can’t quite understand how the DLC got past hundreds of Ubisoft employees without any of them pointing pout the problem, but it did.
