At the beginning of the blog, posted on Ubisoft’s website, Naved Khaveri clarifies that “Our story is political.”
The narrative director says that the story of a title like Far Cry 6‘s must be political because it focuses on a modern revolution.
Furthermore, he says that his goal was to empower the team of devs to be fearless in storytelling. The last five years were crucial in doing that.
“We also tried to be very careful about how we approached our inspirations, which include Cuba, but also other countries around the world that have experienced political revolutions in their histories.”
He also added that they took the approach of bringing various experts to help them on dealing with the plot and its sensitivity. And the game will reflect the Cuban revolutions fought in the late 1950s, 1960s, and beyond.
However, the main story won’t have anything to do with the “current political climate in Cuba,” said Khaveri.
Far Cry 6 will have a modern, political tone but with a fictional context.
Firstly, the players will have to engage themselves in the gameplay before making any opinion before the title’s release.
