Let me just put this into perspective:
Out of the 9 released characters,
7 are male, and 2 are female.
Out of these 7 male characters, 6 are ‘white male protagonists’, and 1 is a non-human.
Out of the 2 females, one is ‘african american’ and one is ‘caucasian’.
You can see where representation is lacking EASILY just from that.
Here’s another game, Overwatch, and their characters.
Out of the 12 released classes,
6 are males, 3 of those males are not human, 3 are mixed ethnicities who seem to represent asia, europe, and (the realm of death).
6 are females, one is indian, one is (presumably) asian, one is an unnatural assassin, one is a Valkyrie, one is an asian, one is a super soldier, and one is a robotic monk.
I’m just saying, that the cast of Evolve does NOT seem as diverse and this is from a very general look. Representation is critical especially in games involving mixed casts and Evolve does not seem to have this, especially when 4 of the major protagonists seem very alike from a first glance. The developers at turtle rock are creative and can infuse their characters with personalities that can win hearts and win disdain from the players alike. However, as some one who has seen their past work, the cast of Evolve is disappointing given the setting where planets and personalities can really shine, and this stands out even further when placed next to competition such as Overwatch.
