The inclusion of a cockfighting game in Far Cry 6 has been widely condemned and global animal rights organizations have urged Ubisoft for an update.
Ubisoft has long touted Far Cry games as drawing inspiration from the real-life cultures of the locations that its games are based in. While attitudes toward animal rights are slowly changing, cockfighting remains one of the most grueling blood sports in the world. The inclusion of the sport in a mini-game has caused outrage and shock.
In a statement, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) called the mini game “reprehensible.” A press release reads:
Turning a horrific blood sport like cockfighting into a Mortal Kombat-style video game match is a far cry from real innovation, as today’s society is strongly opposed to forcing animals to fight to the death. Sharp spurs are used to inflict severe and fatal injuries on cockfighting Roosters. PETA Latino calls on Ubisoft not to continue this appalling minigame.
Ubisoft has remained mum so far.
Far Cry 6 released last week to generally favorable reviews. It has received the worst reviews in the series. It’s a FarCry game that fans may enjoy, but it also offers little new and is more familiar.
Rumor says that Ubisoft plans to overhaul the series , and adopt an online-oriented approach to the next Far Cry , similar to Assassin’s Creed Infinity .
