Yep, ZERO female characters in Assassin's Creed Unity
By Simon Sharwood, 12 Jun 2014
Ubisoft's creative director Alex Amancio has stirred up another row over sexism in the gaming industry by saying the studio's new game, Assassin's Creed Unity, doesn't feature any female characters because it would have been too much of an effort to create them.
Amancio's opinion emerged in this video interview posted by gaming site Polygon.
At about the 21:40 mark in the video, Amancio is asked if it is possible to play as a female assassin in the game's mutiplayer mode.
“To be very honest,” Amancio replies, “we originally had planned to have female assassins in the game. And essentially we ran into the reality of production. It's double the animations, double the voices, all that stuff, double the visual assets.”

And Roy I totally agree..
Really, doing the work to create a virtual woman should in theory be far cheaper than maintaning a real one... no make-up, salon visits, pedicures, manicures, cute shoes, etc etc etc etc.
