UbiSoft throws shade at players who quit Far Cry 6 early with derisive e-mails

Far Cry 6 release date

Thinking of quitting Far Cry 6 after only a few hours of playing? Then be prepared for some verbal backlash, courtesy of some humorously mocking e-mails from the game’s publisher, UbiSoft, for tapping out of the fictional Caribbean island of Yara too early.

“You disappoint me,” the subject line of the derisive e-mail reads. “It was amusing watching you fail” and “surely you can do better than this,” the message within reads.

“Hola, Rojas,” the message continues, addressing Far Cry 6‘s main protagonist, Dani Rojas. “I wanted to thank you for giving me free reign in Yara. Take it easy, and know that Yara is in capable hands.” The message is then signed off by “El Presidente” aka Anton Castillo, the game’s main antagonist played by Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian actor Giancarlo Esposito.

GamesIndustry.biz managing editor Brendan Sinclair shared the images on his Twitter and chided UbiSoft’s actions as more than good-natured jesting.

“A lot of games are already ruthlessly designed to maximize engagement,” Sinclair said in his tweet, “but now they email and hassle you if you dare to stop playing them.”

Far Cry 6 was released on October 10th and is available for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S platforms.

Do you think UbiSoft throwing shade at players who quit Far Cry 6 early is jocular taunting not meant to be taken seriously or pestering in nature like Brendan Sinclair pointed out? Let us know in the comments.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
