** [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/10/12/black-ops-3-director-talks-call-of-dutys-first-female-protagonist Apparently]] there were plans in place to include a playable female character in the game, with the implication being that the player could choose to go through the game as the son ''or daughter'' of David Mason. The idea was ultimately scrapped though due to the need for double voice and mocap performance (which, to be fair, would be extensive for the game's main character). Treyarch later went through with the concept in ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3''.

Of course, with the rate at which YouTube changes its layouts, it's ''extremely'' unlikely that YouTube will look the same in 2021, if it's even still around by then.
