According to a new report, Far Cry 6 is in development at Ubisoft, and is releasing pretty soon, presumably on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC as a cross-gen release.
More specifically, during an earnings call, Ubisoft revealed it will launch five AAA games between April 2020 and March 2021. Three of these will be the already announced Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six: Quarantine. Meanwhile, the other two are from Ubisoft's "biggest franchises."
Taking to Twitter, Schreier noted that neither of these two games are a new Splinter Cell, rather they are the heavily rumored and leaked next entry in Assassin's Creed and a new installment for Far Cry, which has also been rumored here and there.
Of course, all of this should be taken with a grain of salt, like any report, however, as mentioned above.
Where will the action series take us next? Ubisoft sent out a survey asking fans where they would like to see the series head to next. Included in these possible locations was North Korea, Peru, and on another planet. That said, it's unclear whether Ubisoft will draw from any of these possible destinations. I wouldn't be very surprised to see it return to the United States given the success of Far Cry 5.
