There was a lot of attention being given towards a Far Cry 5 map creator called Krollywood earlier this month who recreated the classic GoldenEye 007 maps in the game, but unfortunately they've now been removed.
According to Ubisoft (via Kotaku), the company received "copyright infringement claims from a rights holder" and therefore Ubisoft decided to make them "currently unavailable in the game." Here's the full statement:
We respect the intellectual property rights of others and expect our users to do the same. This matter is currently with the map’s creator and the rights holder and we have nothing further to share at this time."
In a message Krollywood posted on social media, they explained that the infringement claim appeared to have come from MGM (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer), admitting it's "really sad", but the work isn't deleted as they do still have the levels stored elsewhere. However, uploading them again, at least officially, seems like it'll be pretty much impossible.
It's a sad moment for Krollywood and the entire Far Cry 5 community, then, as these levels were near-perfect replications of their Nintendo 64 counterparts, and took over 1,400 hours to create over nearly three years.
What do you make of this? Did you get a chance to try these levels? Let us know down below.
