While not the end all be all, the addition of the crest does represent a small step in the right direction. This does prove devs are listening to the community. While being small, this can hopefully act as the beginning to something much larger. To upend years of toxic and abusive work culture, will certainly be a long, difficult process to bring about change at an internal level. But maybe this gesture can kickstart the change we’re all looking for and expecting from Ubisoft now to make.

I’ve had the pleasure to admire the Assassin’s Creed Sisterhood movement from afar. And just this week, it seems as if I might not be the only one. As Ubisoft themselves have acknowledged the efforts with an in-game nod to the movement. In case you’re not aware, AC Sisterhood is a community lead movement, spearheaded by group member Kulpreet Virdi. With the goal of supporting the women of both the Assassin’s Creed franchise, the Evie’s and Aya’s of the world, as well as the women working at Ubisoft. The official Assassin’s Creed Twitter account announced Monday, that the Sisterhood crest would be available as an in-game tattoo. More information trickled out since. With game director Benoit Richer saying players would find the tattoo, “hidden under one of the 3 major cities in England.”
