Axios Gaming reporter Stephen Totilo citing his own sources shared Insider information on the next installment in Ubisoft’s Far Cry series.
In a June podcast, Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier mentioned that Ubisoft “Set out to go in a completely different direction with Far Cry” after the sixth part.
According to Totilo, this information converges with the data obtained by Axios: the French publisher and developer allegedly “Exploring a more online-oriented approach” for implementation in potential Far Cry 7.
Shortly before the release of Far Cry 6, we found a short video that, among other things, shows a map of the area with player figures. It is assumed that this is a teaser for an unannounced Ubisoft project – quite possibly within the framework of Far Cry.
There is no competitive multiplayer in Far Cry 6, but the game does allow a single player campaign paired with a friend. In this case, the story progress is saved only for the session owner.
Earlier in 2021, Ubisoft announced three shareware Tom Clancy’s games – The Division: Heartland, XDefiant and Ghost Recon Frontline – and turned the next Assassin’s Creed into a content platform.
Far Cry 6 was released October 7 on PC (Uplay, EGS), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, as well as Google Stadia and Amazon Luna. The project tells about the confrontation with the dictator of a fictional tropical country.
