Yesterday, we heard that Anton set to be by Giancarlo Esposito has a huge role in Far Cry 6. Like other Far Cry games, Ubisoft once again gave huge importance to the villain. We saw in the trailer that nothing about the protagonist was shared. Now, Ubisoft has come forward once again to give us more info about the game.

According to Ubisoft, Far Cry 6 fictional place is inspired by Cuba. The country Yara, which will be under the revolution, has taken many similarities from the Cuban Guerilla warfare.

That’s because Cuba was indeed the main inspiration behind the setting and culture of Far Cry 6. “We wanted to tell a story about revolution, and when you tell a story about revolution, you’re talking about guerrilla warfare,” narrative director Navid Khavari explained on the Ubisoft blog.

Navid Khavari also said that this is why the trailer has shown old aged content. No new modern stuff is part of Far Cry 6, particularly because it is set in the ’60s. In the same vein, he also said that the Ubisoft team had to fly down to Cuba and look at the place. They learned the Cuban Culture and met with former guerrillas to get ideas.

“And that really was the jumping-off point, because for our island of Yara, not only did we want to tell a story of a modern guerrilla revolution, but also we want to tell a story about an island that is almost frozen in time, like a living postcard from the ‘60s that players can experience and walk through,” 

Far Cry 6 is set to release next year on February 18. The game will support all platforms, that include Stadia, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC.
