It is an official partnership with Ubisoft, however the breakdown of why Far Cry 5 is ready in Montana is about the one direct crossover.
“The Far Cry franchise is about frontiers, and for Far Cry 5 the team wanted a place that was beautiful but also that felt remote. After making a short list of potential locations, the team got on a plane and headed to Montana.
