Why Call of Duty: Ghosts has female soldiers in multiplayer

Disclaimer: This particular article has nothing to do with books. I just thought it was interesting.

There’s an article on Polygon.com bringing attention to the fact that there’s a female soldier at the end of the Call of Duty: Ghost multiplayer mode.

Offering male and female gender options to Call of Duty: Ghosts players in the game’s Create-A-Soldier mode was a product of the game’s focus on character customization.

It was not, Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin said, an attempt just to try to draw in more people.
