Assassin’s Creed Origins writer Jana Sloan van Geest spoke out about the game’s deuteragonist Aye, Bayek’s wife, after details of the original plot of the project were revealed.
Recall that from the Bloomberg investigation it became known about the original plot of Assassin’s Creed Origins. Bayek, the protagonist of the final game, should have been severely injured or killed early in the story. For the rest of the playthrough, the gamers would be controlled by his wife, Aya. Yana Sloan van Gist shared that she was very upset for the unrealized heroine.
Aya was poorly represented in Assassin’s Creed Origins due to the screen time limit. Because of this, those passing through the story had a false impression of the heroine. If she had more time according to van Gist, people would become familiar with the additional emotional context of her actions and would most likely say kinder things about Aya.
“It hurts me to hear AC fans call Aya cold, bitch or ruthless. The word you are looking for is undeveloped. I love Bayek and always will. Aya deserved better. “– she wrote.
Assassin’s Creed Origins was released on October 27, 2017 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game is set in Egypt during the reign of Cleopatra.
