Especially in the US, heated discussions about the setting of “Far Cry 5” took place in recent months. In a recent statement, the developers pointed out that despite everything they want to stick to this.
Ubisoft is currently working on the first-person shooter “Far Cry 5”, which will be released in February 2018 for the Xbox One, the PC and the PlayStation 4.
“Far Cry 5” shipped to the US state of Montana, which especially in the United States last heated up heated discussions. Among other things, critics pointed out that in times of rampages like the assassination of Las Vegas with 59 dead, it is profane tasteless to publish a title that focuses on religious fanatics. Since these are white Americans, right-wing groups also called for a boycott. According to franchise boss Dan Hay, developers are still sticking to their vision of “Far Cry 5”.
Far Cry 5: The developers stick to their vision
Hay adds: “Three years ago, our focus was on this game and this idea. I realize that this world is spinning fast. And I also know that there are headlines out there that are hard to read. Situations that are really tough. But what we’re trying to do is stick to our plan and make sure we deliver this story, which is captivating, with characters that are captivating. ”
Commenting on the events of the past few months and the way they affected the work on “Far Cry 5,” Hay states, “To be honest, I can not sit here and claim that we’re from what happening in the real world, not being influenced. That we were stoic. You would not lose weight with us anyway. Of course there will be moments when we hear something and think it’s crazy or affecting us. We are human beings and it is almost impossible to prevent something like that. “
