Giancarlo Esposito will star in what appears to be a Cuba like setting.
For a while now, we’ve been hearing rumors that Far Cry 6 is just around the corner. Those rumors intensified when the fantastic Giancarlo Esposito said he was working on a game, and it was said to be Far Cry 6. Well, it seems a new leak confirms that to be true, and it looks to be in a Cuba-like setting.
Via the Hong Kong PlayStation Store, we’ve got our first look at the game. Now, the link has been taken down already, but users at the ResetEra saved the material, and you can see what is presumably the cover art below. The description for the game is also here. Though the translation work is a bit rough, it seems like the game will take place in a place potentially called Yala where a dictator named Anton (presumably the character played by Esposito) intends to hand his empire over to his son. But the country is in the midst of revolution and you will play as a freedom fighter. The description hints at jungles, beaches, and the return of animal companions.
The date listed for the release is February 18th, 2021. Since this is from the PS Store, only those versions are mentioned, and it will be a free upgrade from the PS4 version to the PS5. Presumably this will be the same for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X versions. Most likely, the game will be officially revealed on July 12th at the Ubisoft Forward event, so stay tuned.
