Valve was thinking of putting women into Team Fortress 2
"The goal of the project was to dive deep into possibilities."
The question of female characters in games is a bigger one in 2017 than it may have been ten years ago, and now concept illustrator Drew Wolf, who has worked for Valve, has revealed that female characters were considered for Team Fortress 2 at one point.
"An internal pitch project aimed to bring female characters to the cast of Team Fortress 2," he wrote on his own site. "I was responsible for story, character development and visual design. With the exception of their class function, It was important that each design presented an entirely new character. I wanted these characters to live on their own and add dimension to the current roster of in-game characters. The goal of the project was to dive deep into possibilities and facilitate creative discussion."
