Ubisoft apologizes for Assassin’s Creed promo video with men

A couple of days ago, Ubisoft released a promo video dedicated to the assassin’s Creed series in General and the upcoming Valhalla in particular. It collected footage in which the hero uses his canonical hidden blade. And the video caused outrage among viewers.

Companies quickly recalled everything: that the lack of female models in the co-op assassin’s Creed Unity explained the reluctance to do double work, and that in assassin’s Creed Odyssey Cassandra was supposed to be the only playable character, but the management said that “women do not sell video games.”

In response to the criticism, Ubisoft apologized to anyone who was offended by the lack of women in the ad. And published a revised version of it: featuring Avor, Leila Hassan, and even Shao Jun, who appeared in the short film Assassin’s Creed Embers and “Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China”.
