Alex Hutchinson Tries to Clarify Far Cry 4 Box Art Controversy

By   /   May 20, 2014

Ubisoft Creative Director Alex Hutchinson has stepped up to respond to the controversy around the box-art of recently announced title Far Cry 4.

Whilst some fans argued if the white-man looked like a young Patrick Stewart, most fans were not happy by the overall picture showing a white man enslaving a dark-skinned person. Many believed it to be racist.

Hutchinson claims that the man with his hand over the other is not white and neither is the dark-skinned person the protagonist of the game. Although, you may not find the explanation quite satisfactory, I don’t think that the box-art should be that much of a concern.

Moreover, this isn’t the first time though, Far Cry 3 also received a similar kind of criticism, how a caucasian saves a whole island and its inhabitants from pirates, who happen to be native to the island.

On another note, a ‘leak‘ on Ubisoft’s Online Store shed some light on Far Cry 4, the players takes control of Ajay Ghale a traveller who goes to Kyrat to fulfill his mother’s dying wish, once there he gets caught in a Civil War under the oppressive regime of the dictator Pagan Min.

Far Cry 4 is slated to release on November 28 in US and November 20 in Europe for the PC, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
