The “Space Force” SA-50 Sniper Rifle and the description of weapon says; “Surely the greatest firearm the world has ever seen.”
Speaking with GameRevolution, Far Cry New Dawn’s creative Director, Jean-Sebastien Decant said, “So I think it is not a comment. It is a joke. We really went crazy with the different suits you can gather in the game. So there is the reality of space and the conflict with the twins, but in terms of what you can wear in the game, we really went bats*** crazy. So you can disguise as an ape, you can have a robot arm, and you can have Space Force stuff”.
Far cry New Dawn doesn’t intend any sort of political commentary. Many people thought that the game would have a much stronger political message before the release of Far Cry 5. It was said because the game was released in a political climate and the game did have a political message, but instead of that the games’ story was more based on Cold War and cult activity that occurred in the 80s and 90s. Moreover, the games’ director said in an interview that the setting and theme of the game was already chosen before the 2026 American election.
