The Bolivian government has filed an official complaint with the French embassy over Ubisoft title, Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
According to a report on Reuters, Bolivia has called on the French government to “intervene,” and claimed it reserves the right to take legal action of its own if it doesn’t get a satisfactory response.
Bolivian interior minister Carlos Romero said
We have the standing to [take legal action], but at first we prefer to go the route of diplomatic negotiation
The French embassy is yet to respond to the complaint but Ubisoft did release their own statement regarding the setting of the 3rd person shooter title that is days away from release.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a work of fiction, similar to movies or TV shows. Like all Tom Clancy’s games from Ubisoft, the game takes place in a modern universe inspired by reality, but the characters, locations and stories are all fantasies created solely for entertainment purposes. Bolivia was chosen as the background of this game based on its magnificent landscapes and rich culture. While the game’s premise imagines a different reality than the one that exists in Bolivia today, we do hope that the in-game world comes close to representing the country’s beautiful topography, and that players enjoy exploring the diverse and open landscapes it moved us to create.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands launches for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the 7th March in North America, 9th March in Europe and 10th March in the UK.
