Ubisoft: 'We're Working On Diversifying Our Lead Characters'
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 06.18.2014



Speaking to CVG, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot addressed the criticism of the lead characters in Ubisoft games and diversifying their lead characters in triple-A games. Below are some highlights.

Guillemot on if he's taking in the criticism for the "generic" characters of Watch Dogs: "For sure. We are also making sure the experience is better; at launch we had a number of small problems which have mostly been resolved now. We knew it would be polarizing; some people loved the characters and some didn't. It was difficult to please everybody with that character. Now, having seen the reaction, we know what we will do next to improve that."

Guillemot on if Aiden Pearce will return as the lead for Watch Dogs 2: "I can't say because I don't know actually. We'll see."

Guillemot's response to many blockbuster game protagonists following the archetype of "angry white man": "We are working on that. We want to spend more time on the worlds and characters in our games... you will see more and more of this at Ubisoft. We'll try to be less like we have been in the past with some characters. We'll try to extend more diversity."

Guillemot on if he has any involvement with that on the creative end: "I was sending an e-mail today to the head of creative about a book I read... I give my advice, but after that they come to us with proposals. Sometimes we say no, or I say I'm not happy with something, but very often the teams follow the head of production. I have influence, like other members of the group, but more in the big decisions like engines and characters rather than the details."
