The perfect Call of Duty SquadDuring our interview with Mark Rubin, the executive producer of Infinity Ward, the topic of the new female soldiers came up and the reasoning for including them in the next version of Call of Duty and while it wasn’t included before.

Previously the soldiers used in the multiplayer were taken directly from the characters used in the single player which is why you could never customise your characters before. Something which is more interesting however is that the reason for including female soldiers isn’t simply to placate a vocal minority. No in fact according to Mark Rubin

“24% of the Call of Duty fanbase is female.”

Now I always knew that there were many female gamers in the Call of Duty club but I didn’t realise it was that much. So basically one in four Call of Duty gamers is female.

Check out the full interview coming up later today.

    That’s a surprise, unless he’s counting whiny bitches as female – which is a bit of a disservice to women everywhere.

            I do, particularly brown spirits, although the odd white spirit doesn’t go to waste.

    So 1 in 4 COD players are female and 1 in 4 people in the world are Chinese. I therefore conclude that If I buy kippers it will not rain and fish grow in trees.

    There are a fair number of ladies on Splinter Cell Blacklist as well. Actually played with a bunch of ladies the other night, it was actually refreshing to listen to their chatter.
