'Far Cry 7' Is Going In A "Completely Different Direction", Says Insider

We know, we know - Far Cry 6 isn't even out yet, we get it. Despite Far Cry 6 still getting ready for launch at Ubisoft, the developers have already been talking about how the Far Cry series is going to carry on after its launch. A well-known gaming insider has talked about how Ubisoft is already looking to the future of what will be in store for the series - and apparently, it will be changing its tactics.

Jason Schreier, who works as a reporter for Bloomberg, has revealed his fair share of gaming news and leaks. He's generally reliable for insider knowledge, which is why it's fair to assume that he really has heard rumblings behind the scenes of Ubisoft taking a new direction with the Far Cry series.

Far Cry 6 is still in development but we've already had our first look at what to expect on the fictional island of Yara...

As reported by Comicbook, Schreier talked briefly about the next edition of Far Cry on the Triple Click podcast. The reporter is quoted as saying, "From what I have heard, if I remember correctly, they're aiming to go in a radically different direction for Far Cry after [6]". But what does radically different even mean?

Far Cry has been many different games in the past. We have the mainline series, which often focuses on the dynamic between one main antagonist and the player's protagonist - but then there are also the spin-off stories. Far Cry New Dawn, for example, had twin antagonists in a dystopian post-nuclear war world as they terrorised the survivors. Far Cry Primal was a take on what the series would look like as a prehistoric action-adventure.

When Ubisoft says it will be taking the series in a new direction in the future it's unclear what direction this would be, as the series has such a dynamic range available to it already. First of all, though, we need to focus on what's in front of us: the launch of Far Cry 6 starring Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul actor Giancarlo Esposito, coming on October 7, 2021.
