According to a new report, Far Cry 6 is in development at Ubisoft and is releasing fairly soon, presumably this release will be on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC as a cross-gen release.
This news comes from Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, one of the industry’s most trusted sources who has been reliably reporting on Ubisoft for many years. During a recent earnings call, Ubisoft revealed it will launch five AAA games between April 2020 and March 2021. Three of these will be the already announced Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six: Quarantine. Meanwhile, the other two are from Ubisoft’s “biggest franchises.”
Taking to Twitter, Schreier noted that neither of these two games will be a new Splinter Cell, but they are likely to be the next entry in Assassin’s Creed and a new installment for Far Cry.
For those who haven’t stuck with the franchise throughout, Far Cry debuted back in 2004, and was followed-up by 2008’s Far Cry 2, 2012’s Far Cry 3, 2014’s Far Cry 4, and 2018’a Far Cry 5. In between these releases have also been numerous spin-offs, such as Far Cry Primal and last year’s Far Cry New Dawn.
