In an interview, Creative Director Jean-Sebastien Decant once again talked about the work on “Far Cry: New Dawn”. As he revealed, among other things, the title was not planned from the beginning as a direct successor to “Far Cry 5”.
In the middle of last month, Ubisoft released the first-person shooter “Far Cry: New Dawn” for the consoles and the PC.
As is now rumored, the plot of “Far Cry: New Dawn” starts a few years after the events of “Far Cry 5”. In a recent interview, Creative Director Jean-Sebastien Decant returned to work on his latest project. He revealed a very interesting detail about the latest offshoot of the long-lasting shooter series.
The end of Far Cry 5 was the decisive factor
Thus, “Far Cry: New Dawn” was not planned from the beginning as a direct successor to “Far Cry 5”. Instead, the idea came up only when the makers were busy with the possible end of “Far Cry 5”.
“That was not always planned. It became a plan when we started to think about the end of the game. We started to get excited about the idea of ending it with a nuclear surprise, “Jean-Sebastien Decant said.
“Building on that we had a lot of possibilities. We could make a post-apocalyptic setting, which we have been doing for years. At the same time, we were able to join some of the characters and see what will happen to them in a few years. We also saw what happened to the new generation that only knows this new world. “
“Far Cry: New Dawn” is available for the PC, the Xbox One and the PS4.
