A developer on Far Cry 6 has revealed a hidden reference to their cat in the game who sadly passed away during development. 

Ted Timmins, who worked as game director on Far Cry 6, put out a tweet recently revealing that his late cat Totoro had been immortalized within the walls of Yara. According to the tweet, Timmins’ cat suddenly passed away during the development of Far Cry 6 however will live on forever as some graffiti art in the game, alongside Timmins' other cat Yoshi. 

The tweet also featured a photo of the Gatos wall art and the adorable cats it was based on. "I'm eternally grateful for this, it means so much and was such a thoughtful surprise," the rest of Timmins' tweet reads. It’s nice to know that Totoro meant a lot to not only his owner but also the rest of the team at Ubisoft working on the game.

As those who have already experienced Far Cry 6 will tell you, there’s no shortage of animals within the game. From Chorizo the sausage dog amigo, Guapo the crocodile, and a number of cockerels including El Huevo - whose name literally translates to “the egg.” All of which act as companions for the player as they navigate Yara and beyond. 

In other Far Cry 6 news, Ubisoft is currently investigating an error that is affecting those playing the game on PS5, specifically in the UK it seems. According to one Twitter user, they are only able to access the PS5 upgrade for their PS4 disc version of Far Cry 6 if using a Russian PSN account. Which has led to the speculation that the UK may have received Russian versions of the game upon its release.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
