Selv om visse spill er politiske av natur, og har en bestemt inngangsvinkel til bestemte saker og emner, så har Ubisoft tatt kraftig avstand fra konseptet om å ha en politisk stemme med i spillene sine. Faktisk mener de direkte at spillene er apolitiske, og nå vet vi litt mer om hvorfor de mener det.
I et internt intervju sier Ubisofts president of Editorial, Tommy Francois, at de skildrer livet og alle dets fasetter, og derfor er det ingen politikk involvert.
"It's a 360-degree view of life. Players should be allowed to interact with all points of view. If my game was set during the Vietnam conflict, for example, we would want the Viet Minh, the Viet Cong ... basically everyone's point of view. And that relates back to people making up their own opinions and our ability to create more mature games that are nuanced, versus being black or white."
Han innrømmer dog at det ikke alltid har fungert etter hensikten, eksempelvis Far Cry 5.
"We are scared sometimes as we are world-building. That was the case for Far Cry 5. It is a great game, but it just wasn't possible to present all points of view and perspectives. We believe that ultimately, in the future, players should be able to go in the game world, have as many different experiences as they want, experience as many different political views as they want, as many religions as they want ... as many different fantasies as they want."
Er du enig med Francois?
