Far Cry 6s Message Would Resonate More With Environmental Destruction

Far Cry 6 will see protagonist Dani Rojas take part in a revolution against dictator Anton Castillo, who rules the fictional Caribbean nation of Yara. Based heavily on aspects of Cuban history, the story will see players fight for freedom in a country which has been placed under an international embargo that has rendered it "frozen in time."

Ubisoft will have to tread carefully to avoid some of the colonialist tropes that have arisen in previous Far Cry games, particularly when basing its setting on a nation with such a unique and often simplified role in American popular culture. If Far Cry 6 is going to do Yara justice, it will be necessary for the game to integrate environmental destruction into its main themes.

Ubisoft will have to tread carefully to avoid some of the colonialist tropes that have arisen in previous Far Cry games, particularly when basing its setting on a nation with such a unique and often simplified role in American popular culture. If Far Cry 6 is going to do Yara justice, it will be necessary for the game to integrate environmental destruction into its main themes.
The embargo placed on Anton Castillo's regime is a clear reference to the embargo placed on Cuba when it became a communist country under Castro. Anton succeeding his father's regime from fifty years prior implies that he is not a communist. However, Batista's regime was actively supported by the US government and was open for trade, which makes the embargo seem strange.

It's possible that the details of Anton's politics beyond his desire to "restore Paradise" to Yara will be obscured to avoid any political statements deemed too direct or potentially divisive. Far Cry 6 appears to be aiming to present a fictionalized version of a Caribbean Latin-American nation and its relationship to colonization, slavery, and the United States that avoids the reductive portrayals of previous Far Cry games. To truly achieve that goal, environmental destruction needs to have a key role to play in story and its moral dilemmas.

The history of Cuba's colonization is inseparable from environmental destruction as far back as the arrival of the Spanish. The creation of the country's first plantations required mass deforestation which reshaped the island, and in the 21st century many nations outside of the "First World" face an environmental catastrophe caused in no small part by the standards of living achieved in the United States and European countries. Acknowledgement of environmental destruction and its causes should be intertwined with Far Cry 6's narrative regarding the colonization of Yara and how it led to Anton's regime.
The game's commentary cannot be as simple as suggesting that Anton Castillo's regime wishes to destroy the natural environment from the nation's capital city of Esperanza, and that the revolutionaries want to prevent that from taking place. Indeed, Anton's slogan "restore paradise" could even have an environmentalist interpretation to some degree.

The issue needs to be treated with a nuance that acknowledges how little agency many of the nations which face the worst consequences of environmental destruction actually have over their global systems causing that destruction. Yara is under a trade embargo, for example, which would likely necessitate the far greater use of local natural resources. If Dani Rojas and the game's revolutionaries take over the country, they may still be faced with that embargo on top of the environmental problems caused by more powerful nations.
