Far Cry 6 Leaked and Teased by Ubisoft

Just a couple of days before the Ubisoft Forward event, Far Cry 6 has been leaked and teased. Just like so many games before it, Far Cry 6 briefly found its way onto an online store – this time the Hong Kong version of the PlayStation Store – and the internet was quick to screencap it and spread the news. Shortly after that, the Far Cry Twitter account posted a teaser, and with the leak, the teaser confirms Far Cry 6. Furthermore, the leak revealed February 18, 2021 as the Far Cry 6 release date.

Between the two leaks, it’s been revealed that you play as Dani Rojas, a guerilla fighter in Yara. Yara is under the grasp of Anton Castillo, played by Giancarlo Esposito, a Breaking Bad alumnus. The leaked store page has hinted at Yara being the largest Far Cry map to date. It also gave a short list of features that includes a free upgrade from PS4 to PS5, online multiplayer (up to two players), DUALSHOCK 4 vibration, and “Optional in-game purchases,” also known as microtransactions. Preorder content is also planned out.

 

 

We’ll learn plenty more at Ubisoft’s Forward event on June 12. While not explicitly said, there’s an understanding that Ubisoft Forward is replacing Ubisoft’s usual E3 press conference. The main show starts at 3:00 PM EST, but the stream starts at 2:00 PM EST. Starting then, updates for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, The Division 2, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, and now Far Cry 6 are promised. The event has also sparked a sale on Ubisoft games.

 

 

Ubisoft is making big moves ahead of the next generation, although none of them so far are surprises. Far Cry 6 was a given, but it’ll be exciting to see how well it stacks up against its predecessors and the other things Ubisoft has planned.
