Screen Rant sat down with Far Cry 6 narrative director Navid Khavari to chat about the game’s tone, casting, politics, and Splinter Cell’s future.
Screen Rant recently sat down and talked with Navid Khavari, the narrative director on Far Cry 6, and discussed things like casting, the game’s politics, and much more. Khavari has been with Ubisoft since Splinter Cell: Blacklist and has worked on every mainline Far Cry game since Far Cry 4. Needless to say, he’s well-versed in the storytelling of Far Cry, and has a lot of insight into how these massive games are crafted from the ground up.
From the setting to the cast, Far Cry has set a number of expectations for each entry. One of the key selling points for the series has been the villain, and Far Cry 6 is no exception. Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito will star in Far Cry 6 as Anton Castillo, the dictator of a fictional island known as Yara. Players will be tasked with leading a revolution against Castillo and his regime, leading to an explosive and politically charged battle for freedom and democracy.
