most guys would deny the existence of it in an attempt to sound more manly.
dunno, but I came when I saw Ezio the first time.

I wish they didn't go to WWII. It is sort of played out in games. After Saboteur comes out with the female spy in WW2 the whole industry should just let that war rest of 3-4 years.

It would have been hella more interesting if they went to World World One or some of the other really neat wars (of which there are no shortage) besides the most obvious choice, WW2. What about a game in the Russo-Japanese war, the War of 1812, the Hundred Years war, or etc etc. WW2 is p-la-y-e-d out .
Or perhaps a fictional war. I'm sure they could come up with something a lot more interesting.

Maybe not even a war at all.

@Chatemoc: I was just being sarcastic. Of course I see the sex appeal in Ezio, though I would have suspected that most guys would deny the existence of it in an attempt to sound more manly.

As long as they don't do WWII. Then, it's basically a third-person CoD with jumping and flips and boobs.
I fail to see the bad in any of that....

It's absurd to deny a man has sex appeal -- we're men. Are you out of your mind? It's just recognizing in others what (hopefully) you see in yourself.

Haw-haw! Nice try RabidChinaGirl, but I doubt that will cause any guys to admit that Ezio has sex appeal.

Everyone here is assuming that the male leads of Assassin's Creed don't have sex appeal. Seriously. Look at them.

I think Ubisoft had enough experience with AC for we to safetly say they won't lose themselves in sex appeal and the more vulgar stuff.

The main concepts in the game are and will always be Crowd Stealth and Adaptive Movement and Action. Perhaps her more fragile nature would mean she shouldn't engage in open fights against overwhelming numbers, but what about it? It's not like the game focuses much on that for a game mechanics, fighting is a detail.

Things that could be added, however, are new ways to lose your chasers, for example. A small, slim woman can get into places both Ezio and Altair wouldn't dream of.

Female assassin??

I'd love to play a game which features female assassin who can seduce men...Perhaps efficient love making tactics would be a rudimentary theme of next Assassin Creed game???

I think they will still be following a male character, as both Ezio and Altair both look exactly identical to Desmond Miles. However, it depends what happens outside of the Animus too...

A chick assassin won't be as badass as Ezio IMO.
Because chicks have great asses!

Many assassins are women. The fact that you don't think they would be is exactly why many are.
