But maybe more importantly, this “surprise” for Ubisoft calls into question who they are getting to play test their games. It’s quite possible whoever is play testing their games might not be your average gamer.

One thing is clear is this appears to be another case where a massive game company appears to be completely out of touch with their actual fan base especially when they are using the word “surprised” when finding out most of their players, who are more than likely male, enjoy playing a male character over a female character.

Exactly this. Ubisoft is clearly making something for a different audience than is buying it. The further they go down this path, the more they will lose that core audience.
