No courtesans in Assassin’s Creed Revelations

After two games’ worth of assisting Ezio with his business, hem hem, Assassin’s Creed’s courtesans are bidding the series a temporary farewell.

360 Informer reports the decision to drop everyone’s favourite horn-haired hidey holes is a nod to historical accuracy.

Apparently, they didn’t have courtesans standing around on every street corner of Constantinople in the year 1511. Who knew?

To replace the courtesan faction, which along with thieves and mercenaries provided options for distracting or taking out guards, Ezio will befriend Romani performers.

I really can’t see a bunch of acrobats having quite the same magnetic lure as Assassin’s Creed II and Brotherhood’s ladies of the night, but realism first, right?

Revelations is the final chapter in the story of Ezio Auditore, and is said to tie up the stroyline in preparation for the far-distant Assassin’s Creed III. It’s due on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November.
