Far Cry 6 narrative director, Navid Khavari, has confirmed the story is political but is not about Cuba.
Khavari took to a blog post to discuss the game’s politics.
~Navid Khavari.Our story is political. A story about a modern revolution must be. There are hard, relevant discussions in Far Cry 6 about the conditions that lead to the rise of fascism in a nation, the costs of imperialism, forced labor, the need for free-and-fair elections, LGBTQ+ rights, and more within the context of Yara, a fictional island in the Caribbean.
Khavari acknowledged that the situation in Cuba inspired Far Cry 6‘s story, but that “if anyone is seeking a simplified, binary political statement specifically on the current political climate in Cuba, they won’t find it.”
Far Cry 6 heads to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Stadia and Windows PC on 7 October.
