    A new Far Cry 6 teaser image has just surfaced online, which appears to be giving a valuable insight into Anton Castillo's twisted world of Yara.

    The next Far Cry 6 from Ubisoft has a lot of fan enthusiasm around it. Being the series debut on next-gen consoles (as well as releasing on PS4/Xbox One), Far Cry 6 has a lot of potential. It's been speculated that the game could be a radical departure from the series' formula, but nothing official is known to support that sentiment.



    However, a recent image of Far Cry 6 has appeared online on various Ubisoft social media accounts. The image in question is about a newspaper interview with Anton Castillo, the main antagonist of the game. While many may dismiss this as a simple means of building Ubisoft's hype for the game, closer inspection reveals a lot of interesting information about the game.

    Far Cry 6 Image Breakdown: The Article

    While Anton Castillo remains the focal point of the image, the surrounding text reveals a lot of information about the game's setting. The language used in the newspaper is Spanish, which obviously reinforces hints about the game's setting. The town of Yara in Far Cry 6 is heavily based on real-life Cuba, where Spanish is the official language. “Novembre del 2020” is the publication date, meaning the game is set in roughly real-world time, debunking most theories about Diego Castillo being a younger Vaas.



    The newspaper is titled “La Voz De Yara”, which translates as “the voice of Yara”. The subtitle reads: “Official Journal De Yara”, which translates to “Official Journal of Yara”. The newspaper's name may have suggested that the publication might be run by the resistance, but the subtitle suggests otherwise. While neither of the two theories can be ruled out at once, there is a high possibility that Anton is the owner of the media outlet in question, as he allowed himself to be interviewed for a biased article.

    The headline of the article “Hambre y agonia en el paraiso” translates as “Hunger and Agony in Paradise”. This further bolsters the claim that Anton is the potential owner of the media outlet, as the article also refers to Yara as a paradise, something Anton does frequently when referencing the country. While issues like famine seem to be addressed, the headline's tone suggests that much has nothing to do with the tyrant. The main article itself is blurry, which makes it more difficult to understand more about the subject.


    Another newspaper headline in the background translates to something like a president radically changing the way society works, which seems to point to Anton himself. There's another headline in the distance that seems to talk about something related to friendship, with "Friend" clearly visible. The content of these articles remains difficult to decipher, which raises the question of whether Yara's media is free or controlled by Anton.

    What do these tips mean for the world of Far Cry 6?

    Much of what this image offers is primarily a view of Yara's twisted world as the public and media fell apart under Anton Castillo's rule. This puts more weight on the resistance's shoulders, which should indicate a narrative with a serious tone. The newspaper article could have huge implications for Far Cry 6's gameplay, assuming the newspaper is regulated by the resistance (or anyone except Anton Castillo).


    If this theory is indeed correct, it would suggest that Yara still has journalists active in the area. Dani Rojas being a native could help them with covering events, which could be useful for a set of side quests. While this is mostly fan speculation, it sounds like an interesting version of the typical Far Cry formula.

    Ultimately, the newspaper article just gives fans more information about the fictional town of Yara, its problems from a media perspective as well as the public. This finally paints the picture of a once-glorious city reduced to a dilapidated version of its former form under Anton's tyranny, which creates high expectations for Ubisoft to deliver on the premise. Fans are clamoring to see the game in action at E3, and Far Cry 6 has a high chance of being the main reveal of Ubisoft's E3 presentations this year.


    Far Cry 6  is in development for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
