A few days after the release of Far Cry 6, PETA, an ethical animal welfare organization, called on Remove cockfighting from Ubisoft. The mini-game from the project was compared to the defenders Mortal Kombat.
“Turning gruesome blood sports like cockfighting into Mortal Kombat-style matches is a step backwards. Modern society is categorically against forcing animals to fight deadly. Roosters used in such fights have sharp spurs capable of tearing apart flesh and bone, causing excruciating and fatal injuries. PETA Latino urges Ubisoft to replace this reprehensible minigame with one that does not glorify violence. “, – stated representative of PETA Latino.
Ubisoft created the fictional state of Yar in Far Cry 6 based on Cuba, where cockfighting is common. The company gave the organization a corresponding response.
“Far Cry 6 is a fiction set on Yar, a fictional island in the Caribbean. Many of the additional activities in the game are part of Yara’s culture and history, which were inspired by Latin American culture. “– answered Ubisoft.
It looks like the developers will keep fighting in the game. Let’s add that at the end of the mini-game, both roosters remain alive.
