Developed by Ubisoft Toronto, the same studio responsible for Far Cry 5, this game amps up it’s appeal by showcasing the incredible Giancarlo Esposito as the fearsome Castillo. His son, Diego, is being portrayed by Anthony Gonzalez. He is most known for his performance as Miquel in Coco.

Release Date Information

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Far Cry 6 was delayed from it’s initial release date of February 18, 2021. It is still expected to launch in 2021, though, however no official date has been given.

A Microsoft Store listing leaked May 25 2021 as the possible release date, however Ubisoft has not confirmed this. That being said, when this has happened in the past the leaked date is often accurate.

According to Wikipedia, Far Cry 6 will be avai;lable on the following platforms:

  • Amazon Luna, via Streaming
  • Microsoft Windows, via Epic Games Store & Ubisoft Connect
  • PlayStation 4

This is slightly different to the official listing by Ubisoft on their Far Cry 6 hub site. Here, Ubisoft Connect is listed and Amazon Luna is not mentioned. There is no confirmation as to whether the game will be coming to Steam, but it is confirmed to not be launching on the platform.

Narrative Director Navid Khavari had this to say about the decision:

“We knew that if we’re going to tell the revolution story, if we’re going to tell a story about someone in a guerrilla movement, you need to have that personal connection with them… You need someone who’s rooted in the world, who has a background. So we wanted proper performance capture, we wanted to have a voice.”

In addition to this, Khavari confirmed in an interview that Far Cry 6 will have a greater emphasis on verticality in it’s gameplay which will offer a fresh take on the traditional action-adventure FPS gameplay the series is known for.

Despite the rumours that Diego is actually a young Vaas, the antagonist from Far Cry 3, little else is known about how the narrative of the next Far Cry title will play out. What are you hoping to see?
