Will this be Far Fry 6 or a spinoff like Primal?

Seems like it will be a spinoff, non-canon sequel to Far Cry 5, using the Far Cry 5 map, but post-apocalypse-fied. So, kind of like Far Cry Primal, which reused the map shape and terrain of Far Cry 4 in order to cut down on development cost and time:

Interesting.

I would like to see a Far Cry set in ancient Egypt. Just reuse the map and assets from AC Origins.

But I still want modern weapons and vehicles. Maybe camels with turrets attached.

I don't think that setting specifically is under consideration right now, but a Saharan desert game is on the list. Here are all of the options from the 2 most recent official Far Cry setting surveys:

  • Northern Canadian territories
  • On Another planet (there was a Mars DLC for Far Cry 5)
  • Post-apocalyptic world (seems to be next)
  • India
  • Cuba
  • Steppes of Alaska
  • Russia/Siberia
  • Vietnam (there was a Vietnam DLC for Far Cry 5)
  • Africa
  • Saharan Desert
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • North Korea
  • Peru
  • Blood Dragon 2
  • Vampire game
  • Zombie game (there was a zombie DLC for Far Cry 5)
  • Spaghetti Western
  • Jurassic Park style island
  • Shangri-La


I still wouldn't be surprised if this was an expansion rather than a full game. Please never put the words "confirmed" and "insider" next to each other.

If this is going to be a full release, my disappointment will be immeasurable, and my day will be ruined. Maybe this is just me, but out of all the Ubisoft franchises that are annual/bi-annual, Far Cry is the one which I would like the most to stop this trend. Granted, I haven't bought a Far Cry game since 3, which is the only game in the series I've gotten. So I guess Ubisoft doesn't care what I think. But still, it's so disappointing. As an "event" game, Far Cry has so much potential.

I almost bought Far Cry 4 because 2014 was a year of slim pickings, but I feel like the hype for it died out quick

When Far Cry Primal was announced I was super excited, I remember I got the Gameinformer before even knowing of it's existence. One of the few times I've cared about my GameInformer subscription. I love Prehistoric settings! Then .... nothing. I didn't hear anyone talk about it till right before release. It seems it wasn't that spectacular or new, and apparently it just copied Far Cry 4's map.

Then Far Cry 5 comes out and it's a game which has a lot of hype around it and interest. But .... the setting looks sooooo boring. Seriously, a Far Cry game in civilization? Sounds like ass. I don't need no Americana bullshit in my Far Cry.

I guess this will just be a franchise I'll forever remember for one great game ... cause this one looks boring AF (and that location looks so similar to 5's?)

Seems awfully soon for a far cry game me thinks unless its in the same vein of a far cry primal, middle game and not really mainline

That seems to be the plan going forward for the series. A game every 1.5-2 years, alternating between numbered main series and spinoff.

Looking at that list, I would love a game based in Cuba. Maybe you play as an apprentice to Che Guvera and you have to liberate the island. Maybe add some sim elements like socializing healthcare and build an army to stop people that try to escape the island. This could be an epic trilogy, blur the lines between Far Cry and AC.

Is this legit?



Looks like i was half-right in it being a direct sequel of sorts to 5.

It matches with the art style used for previous Far cry covers, so I'm going to say yes. 

Looks like we have the first female main villains in the series. We've had secondary female villains before like Faith in 5, Noore and Yuma in 4, and Citra in 3, but never female main villains.

From the list, my top 3 would probably be:

1. Blood Dragon 2

2. Jurassic Park style island with dinosaurs

3. Russia/Siberia

 

Blood Dragon should just be spunoff into it's own IP imo, it's good enough to be it's own IP and it sold very well (best-selling digital only game in Ubisoft history). The Jurassic Park style island with dinosaurs would make a great standalone DLC or side game (like Primal and New Dawn). Russia/Siberia seems like a great option for the next numbered main title imo, it meets the wilderness and wildlife criteria for a Far Cry game, and they could make a good villain based loosely on Putin.
