While we won’t get a new Far Cry game this year, we won’t have to wait much longer next year. Far Cry 6. Ubisoft has announced that Far Cry 6 will release February 18, 2021 On PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia (it’s a lot of platforms, we know). In typical Ubisoft fashion, several versions will be available to purchase, and pre-order listings are already starting. If you already know you’re down to jump into another Zee open-world first-person shooter, you can also take some cool bonuses with your pre-order.
Far Cry 6 is currently set in the fictional country of Yara, a tropical paradise in the country that is “frozen in time”, largely due to the country’s tyrannical leader Anton Castillo (played by Breaking Bad actor Giancar Esposito) . As the story’s protagonist, you’ll step into the shoes of Dani Rojas, who helps form a guerrilla faction to oust Castillo from power.
Although the next generation of consoles will already be out until the release of Far Cry 6, it is worth noting that you will be able to purchase a copy of Far Cry 6 to play on PS4 / PS5 and Xbox One / Series X. If you’re not planning to upgrade immediately to the next generation console, you’ll still be able to enjoy Far Cry 6 on the PS5 and Xbox Series X whenever you decide to upgrade.
Pre-orders have just begun to go live on all platforms, but we will continue to update as Far Cry 6 is available for more retailers to order.
