Far Cry is the second biggest game franchise from Ubisoft. The games in the series focus primarily on one antagonist rather than branching out, which make them unique. Far Cry 3 took the idea to its extreme by introducing the world with ‘Vaas,’ who was brilliantly played by Micheal Mando. The same was the case with the fourth and fifth iteration of the series. The last game felt a bit bland as the player controlled character did not have a good build-up, but the primary antagonist Joseph Seed was unequivocally loved.
Disregarding the post-apocalyptic spin-off “Far Cry New Dawn”, the last game in the franchise Far Cry 5 was released in 2018. So, another main title in the series should be in the works, at the very least. Yesterday, Far Cry 6 briefly appeared on the HongKong PlayStation Store. It was not a brief leak mind you; it had the famous Far Cry villain cover art and the release date too. It had other crucial details as well, mainly the fact that users would be able to upgrade the game to the PS5/Xbox Series X version free of cost if they get it for the current-gen consoles.
For any Far Cry game, the villain is subjectively in focus, someone extremely impressionable. The leaked cover art featured an ominous-looking Giancarlo Esposito, the actor who played pivotal negative roles in the Mandalorian and Breaking Bad. Ubisoft has confirmed the leak by releasing a teaser video showing the actor on Ubisoft’s official Facebook page.
It is actually a big deal for those who are fans of both the game and the TV series. It also confirms that Far Cry 6 will be featured during Ubisoft’s Forward online event scheduled for this Sunday. Lastly, according to the leak, the game is set to release by 18th Feb next year.
