In November 2016, Polygon asked whether or not the upcoming game of The Witcher 3 would include female characters, and one of the first things that came up in response was a question about whether or no they would ever be playable.
“As far as women in the game,” a studio representative told Polygon.
“No, not yet.”
This is, of course, a completely unsurprising response, given the nature of the game.
The Witcher is a turn-based role-playing game where you’re a Witcher.
The idea behind the series, in which Geralt, a human who has traveled the world as a warrior and an explorer, fights to protect his people from the evil that threatens them, is to allow players to make choices that impact the world around them.
But the Witcher 3 takes place in a world with a gender imbalance, where women are less than 20 percent of the population.
That means there’s no way for women to play the game, and while the Witcher has said that it is exploring the idea of bringing female characters to the world of The Last of Us, the studio has yet to confirm whether or if it will.
But even with a clear gender imbalance in The Last Of Us, many people still feel that women should have a place in video games.
“In terms of games that have been released recently, it’s very clear that games that focus on female characters are a minority of games, especially the ones that have a female protagonist,” Anita Sarkeesian, the woman behind the video series Feminist Frequency, told Polygon.
“There’s a lot of ways to make it that are really good.
You can make it about people and not about monsters.”
Sarkeesians’ video series has inspired a slew of games and games-related projects that have focused on addressing issues of sexism in video gaming.
A recent example of a game that tackles issues of gender inequality is Assassin’s Creed Unity, which is the first game to focus on the experiences of two female protagonists.
While Ubisoft is still waiting on its own official statement on the matter, one thing is for sure: it’s something that is on the table.
“The Last of U.S.A.” is currently on Steam, and the developer has yet a response to Polygon’s request for comment.
It’s also worth noting that it’s been confirmed that the game will be coming to consoles.
While the PlayStation 4 version of The Next Big Thing is currently only available for pre-order, there are rumors that Ubisoft is also working on a Switch version, according to Polygons story.
“It’s going to be something very different from The Last,” Sarkeesy said.
“I think The Last was a big game and we’re going to have a big, big game.”
“The last was a game with a lot more of a female perspective.
This one’s more like a family game.
It was made by a very small team, and they were made to be really, really supportive and really, totally inclusive of all of their players.
This is something we are excited to do with the team we have.”
The Last will be released on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
