The unofficial rebranding of Ubisoft's upcoming shooter is a reference to the open world game's Montana, USA setting, and its focus on a religious cult which some fans have taken to have right-wing survivalist overtones.

Ubisoft's recent Far Cry 5 reveal sparked plenty of debate around the game's choice of setting and characters, with many fans drawing comparisons between it and the real-life USA.
