Kotaku has learnt from sources that upcoming new Assassin’s Creed (which is rumoured to be set in Victorian London and be subtitled Syndicate) will include a playable female protagonist. The game is supposedly going to star a brother-and-sister team of assassins: Jacob and Evie Frye. It wouldn’t be surprising if Ubisoft chose to include a female playable character considering the backlash that they received regarding female characters with last year’s Assassin’s Creed Unity. We’ll find out this evening when the game is unveiled live on the Internet.
