Along with a multiplayer spin-off, rumors indicate Far Cry 7 might be happening soon!
Using the same Snowdrop engine as The Division 2, Far Cry 7 is supposedly currently in production.
There were speculations on January 26 that Ubisoft was working on both Far Cry 7 and a separate multiplayer spin-off game in the series. It was also confirmed with Ubisoft that both of these games were in production at the time, lending belief to the rumor.
Game engine replacement
The official Far Cry site primarily reveals that Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine will replace the current Dunia engine for the game. Moreover, it will also power the coming Ubisoft Star Wars game.
Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, confirms that he made a hushed reference to the forthcoming Far Cry titles at a company-wide update last week.
A new multiplayer game for Far Cry
In conclusion, the publication claims that Ubisoft has been working on a fully multiplayer Far Cry game for “years.” Ubisoft has tried and failed to implement this type of gameplay in the past, with some of the failed attempts being recycled into other multiplayer games, which is why the Far Cry series has never featured this type of mode previously.
Launching in late 2021, Far Cry 6 was the final mainstream chapter in Ubisoft’s franchise. Several post-launch extensions followed, culminating in the Lost Between Worlds DLC, released in November 2022.
The release date for Far Cry 7 is still a ways off, but it looks like the developers are aiming for the fall of 2025.
The future of the Far Cry series is unknown, but with the rise in popularity of extraction-style games, the rumor might be true after all. Fans should still wait for an official announcement nonetheless.
But, if you’re stingy enough to give patience to upcoming games, you can check out all PS5 and PS4 game releases this year.
