Ubisoft Sends Emails to People Who Stopped Playing Far Cry 6

Ubisoft doesn't like that players stop playing Far Cry 6. The publisher decided to remind them about the title via email.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  • Ubisoft sends emails to players who have stopped playing Far Cry 6;
  • These are written from the perspective of Anton Castillo;
  • The company does this to encourage players to return to the title.

These days, games are supported for a long time after release. So it's not enough for you to buy a product and complete it in a matter of days. Developers and publishers would prefer that you play it for months or even years. After all, it means a steady stream of cash. This is no different in the case of Far Cry 6.

It's not surprising that Ubisoft does everything to keep the attention of people who bought the game. Probably no one expected, however, that the French publisher will start sending emails to individual players, in which it will mock their achievements and time spent in the game.

The message is written from the perspective of dictator Anton Castillo, who states that he's disappointed in us, but at the same time is grateful that we're putting the power of Yara in his hands. He also admits that we would definitely be able to push ourselves a little more. Of course, he's talking about further gameplay and devoting even more time to Ubisoft's game. Castllo probably wouldn't disdain spending some money on attractive microtransactions available in the title as well.

What's interesting, the French publisher clearly does not respect the time of its customers. For how else to define the situation in which these messages are directed even to people who have spent more than 30 hours in the game, and still continue to play, but allowed themselves a small break. Something like this happened to one of the readers of Kotaku, who forwarded the email to the editors of the website. As you can see, his achievements did not impress El Presidente.

If you also own Far Cry 6 and deigned to take a break from it, you'd better be on your guard. The dictator of Yara may soon appear in your inbox.
