Far Cry 6, an open-world first-person shooter, will no longer get any updates from the developer, Ubisoft, according to an announcement made by the company. The business announced in a statement on social networking platform X that the online services for Far Cry 6 will continue to operate as normal after the announcement was made.
It’s probable that the decision to stop providing additional updates for Far Cry 6 was taken so that the development companies working on the game may shift their focus entirely to the next installment in the Far Cry series. According to information obtained through leaks, Ubisoft is working on two different versions of the Far Cry franchise at the moment: one of them is a mainline sequel, while the other is a spin-off multiplayer extraction shooter.
It has been speculated that the non-linear nature of the plot in Far Cry 7 will serve as the game’s primary selling point. According to reports, the narrative would impose a time constraint on players as they attempt to save family members from a mysterious organization simply referred to as “Sons of Truth.” It has been stated that players would have total freedom to undertake the objectives in the game in whatever order they want.
The rumored release date for Far Cry 7 is set for the fall of 2025, which indicates that the game is not expected to be available for another two years.
