Video: Are the Far Cry games connected?

Not so far-fetched?

With the exception of a few characters from Far Cry 3 popping up in Far Cry 4's Kyrat, the general assumption is that each Far Cry game stands alone, lacking any significant narrative links. The thing is, I'm a massive Far Cry nerd and, after noticing numerous subtle details in Far Cry 4 that seemed to reference past games and characters, I decided to dig a bit deeper. After wading through the endless swamp of online speculation, I've got a pretty solid theory (I think) that not only ties the whole series together, but also points us toward a possible setting for Far Cry 5.

Before you press play I should warn you this video assumes you have at least a basic knowledge of the series. And a tin foil hat. Give it a watch and let me know your take on my findings in the comments below.

Above all though, don't take it too seriously - it's just a bit of fun.
