Far Cry 7 could mark a fresh start for the franchise. Similar to AC Origins for Assassin’s Creed, the game series may face a major upheaval after the upcoming Far Cry 6. At least the well-known and usually reliable insider Jason Schreier explains that he has heard that Far Cry will be radically different after the upcoming game.
Far Cry 7 is going on a completely different direction
Ubisoft has been ridiculed for its formulaic games for a long time, but is not afraid of major upheavals in well-known franchises. With Assassin’s Creed: Origins, for example, the series was steered in a new, significantly different direction than it was before (more RPG elements, huge open world, etc.). Something similar could continue with Far Cry in the future.
This question is not only of concern to Ubisoft. The well-known insider also speaks in the Triple Click podcast about what he has heard about the future of the franchise. So there could be pretty big changes after Far Cry 6.
In that sense, Jason Schreier said the following in the podcast: “From what I have heard if I remember correctly, they’re aiming to go in a radically different direction for Far Cry after [Far Cry 6].” What exactly that could mean?
Since Far Cry has been using a relatively standardized shooter recipe with an open-world formula for some time, that sounds interesting of course. Far Cry 6 has not even been released yet, so it is of course difficult to make reliable statements about the next part.
Far Cry 6 will be released on October 7th for PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
