I like Far Cry 6. It’s a rinse and repeat of previous games in the series with a ton of stuff to do, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It’s a decent title to hold you over until the bigger holiday games release (Halo… cough). With that said, the play mechanics are getting long in the tooth and I can totally see myself abandoning the game the moment something fresher comes out.
However, when the inevitable breakup does occur, expect Ubisoft to act like the crazy ex and begin stalking you, as GamesIndustry.biz Managing Editor Brendan Sinclair learned when he got an e-mail titled, “It was amusing watching you fail.”
Really Ubisoft? No thank you. This feels desperate and a bit of an overreach. I’m already uncomfortable knowing that companies are actively tracking my every move, but for Ubisoft to throw this in my face feels creepy. Clingy ex-girlfriend creepy.
Listen Ubisoft, it’s not you, it’s me. Get over it.
