It’s not even about being quiet…the guy is literally clueless because Battlefield 1 DID include a woman soldier in the War stories campaign mode. She was inspired by a real life woman called Kara Fatma
However they changed her race and who she fought for…basically creating a new character. So the point is they had a chance to go with a real historical figure during that time frame yet ignored it.
Now all of a sudden it’s “we’re not realistic, we never have been”. I mean really?
“She says the original design document said “screw realism, we’re adding female soldiers, because we’re way overdue.”
“As Coget describes it, DICE executives called her into a meeting and told her that they were “going for realism after all,” that “Female chars matter,” yet “it’s just not the game we’re making”
Key phrases here…
“realism after all”
“it’s just not the game we’re making”
What the f*** happened to DICE between then and now? They had their heads screwed on right and wanted to be as realistic as possible but now it’s “we never were” and “don’t like it don’t buy it”. No one cares when it makes sense, a Russian female soldier or an everyday woman in a resistance group fighting back enemy forces in their home town (which they are doing for Battlefield V).
