There's a new female-led game called Remember Me coming soon from Dontnod Entertainment. The possibility of a game with a female protagonist is unusual enough that Becky Chambers from The Mary Sue wrote a terrific post about it: In Which I Am Pretty Darn Sure That Most Gamers are Fine with Female Protagonists.
Chambers argues that it isn't the gamers who are having a problem with female protagonists. She thinks that it's game publishers who want nothing to do with female main characters, while the gamers themselves have other things on their minds.
