The next Far Cry game could shake-up the series with a greater focus on online play, it has been claimed.
Earlier this week, it emerged that Ubisoft may have included a teaser in Far Cry 6 hinting at a potential multiplayer game set in the Far Cry universe.
And in June, Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier also suggested Ubisoft could be set to take the franchise in a new direction with Far Cry 7.
“From what I have heard, if I remember correctly, they’re aiming to go in a radically different direction for Far Cry after that, after [Far Cry] 6,” he said on the Triple Click podcast.
The game doesn’t include player versus player multiplayer, but its story can be played co-operatively.
It currently has scores of 75 (PS5), 76 (PC) and 80 (Xbox Series X/S) on review aggregator Metacritic.
Some of the game’s harsher reviews, including VGC’s 2/5-star verdict, criticise the title for sticking too closely to a tried and tested formula.
Our critic Jordan Middler wrote: “If you’re interested in another Far Cry game that does the Far Cry stuff the way it’s been doing it for 10 years, you’ll probably have a good time, but if you’ve already hit your limit with this kind of game, Far Cry 6 is the ne plus ultra of why open-world game design is so badly in need of a revolution.”
