Far Cry 6 Set in Exotic Environment, Launching July 12th

Far Cry 6, the sequel to Ubisoft's popular franchise of Far Cry games, is supposedly launching on July 12th. Thanks to the report from Gamereactor.dk, they have obtained information that Ubisoft will unveil the latest game sequel at the Ubisoft Forward event. In translation, the website said: "The last [Ubisoft] game scheduled to be released before April (unless Ubisoft decides it's this game that should be postponed due to COVID-19 or that there are too many AAA releases in a fairly short window) is set to be a Far Cry. I don't want to ruin Ubisoft's plans by giving you all the information, but I can say with certainty that those of you who didn't like Far Cry 5's North American setting are likely to find this game more interesting when it's officially unveiled during Ubisoft Forward on July 12."

The game is said to be available sometime in 2021, however, that information could very well be not true, as the game launch is happening much earlier than that. It could be that Ubisoft is preparing to launch this with the wave of next-generation consoles, so we have to wait and see how it plays out.

Exotic enviornment is where this series came from, and possibly where it can and should return to. Good call.

Title says FC6 'launching' July 12th. It's only a reveal. Actual release, according to source in post is 2021. :(

Surprised they haven't gone to Australia yet where supposedly everything can kill you.. But then again it is a barren wasteland so not much to do other then boxing kangaroo's & saving babies from dingo's. :pimp:

Looks like FarCry 1: Reboot. Might be a good idea to go back to the basics.
Haven't touched much from this series, cause it became boring and repetitive (not story-wise, but from gameplay perspective).
I think since FC1 I've only played FC4 some time ago, and quite recently got hooked on an old hidden gem: FarCry3: Blood Dragon )))

Technically, the launch is in July. The question of availability is what you are referring to. And we can't know when it will be available until it is launched. Updated the article to avoid confusion.

Clearly you have never been to Australia.
That image for FC6 could have been taken anywhere along our coastline.
Our environment is varied, and vast.

Technically, the reveal is in July. The launch is 2021. A launch in nautical terms implies a start of a voyage/journey, or in product terms it means when a product is released for purchase.

I wonder how many towers we will have to climb in this one?

Far Cry 2 was a whole lot of fun even though it had such glaring issues.

I have played all Far Cry games, I started with Far Cry 1 but it was already old and the graphics quite dated so didn't enjoy it much, for me the best are Far Cry 3 then Far Cry 2, the rest are shit both from story and environment wise, I felt that Far Cry 5 was just pushing some sort of Anti-Trump agenda, I despise it when companies try to push agenda down my throat through games.

I just hope that they will innovate and try something new other than the usual: "Unlock the map by turning on radio towers and clearing outposts" which at this point is just toooooooooo boring. All I want is a deep jungle or Savanah biome with innovative gameplay.

The good thing about Ubisoft is that once they find a successful formula they don't change it much (Far Cry games) or they try to put together all the successful formulas into one (AC Odyssey) but Far Cry hasn't changed much from a decade ago and it's time to change things a bit, however I hate it when companies change the gameplay for the sake of change (2K/Firaxis AM LOOKING AT YOU), I mean Firaxis had a massively enjoyable gameplay in Civ 3 but kept changing the gameplay a bit in each successive game to the point that Civ 6 was just "Meh" compared to games that were released almost two decades ago.

I commend Ubisoft - they managed to take the Far Cry series from an original sci-fi FPS, to an Assassin's Creed FPS set in modern times.

Generic sandbox fps is back with iteration #6, yay?
Might be interested if it's not again on that ancient single core engine

If it will be anything similar like FC3, then I'm in! My favourite of the series.

If the game is a cut and paste clone of the previous 3-4 games then it can go to hell for all i care.

I'm confused. Do they mean April 2021?

Original FarCry - amazing. Played through it a good 6 or 7 times over the years.
FarCry 2 - yeah....
FarCry 3 - enjoyed the story enough to keep me engaged.
FarCry 4 - I don't know exactly what this game was about and I can't remember if I even beat it. Uplay says I have about 10 hours in the game....not sure where I ended in it or if I beat it.
FryCry Primal - never played, couldn't bring myself to getting it with how unmemorable and lackluster FarCry 4 was.
FarCry 5 - played through on co-op, it was okay. Doubt I would have played it, let alone remembered anything about it if I played it single player....then again, the game was a gift so I probably never would have bought it myself.
FarCry New Dawn - When did this game come out?
FarCry 6 - please stop making these games.

One thing i did not like about it is that it made me less fun due to blowing shit up would force you in a unavoidable boss situation and would not matter how hard you tried. The story's are so fixed direction.

What issue is that ?, i did not have any issue's at all with it.

Lets face it, their be a civil war if the republicans defended their rights as they do in that game.

I can't wait. Love me some FarCry ; and yes all the 3, 4, 5 and New Dawn are basically the same game, which is awesome.

Hopefully they wont put in bullet sponge bosses like they did with new dawn.
