Ubisoft has announced that it will no longer be releasing any updates for open-world first-person shooter Far Cry 6. Announced through a post on social media platform X, the company stated that the online services for Far Cry 6 will continue to function.
The decision to end content support for Far Cry 6 was likely made so that the studios working on the game could move on to working full-time on the next Far Cry game. Leaks have indicated that Ubisoft currently has two Far Cry titles in the works, with one being a mainline sequel and the other being a spin-off multiplayer extraction shooter.
According to rumours, Far Cry 7‘s big hook will be its non-linear story. The story will reportedly put a time limit on players who are trying to rescue family members from a group known only as “Sons of Truth”. Players will reportedly have complete freedom to tackle the game’s missions in any order they desire.
Far Cry 7 is rumoured to be targetting a Fall 2025 launch, which means that the game is still around two years away.
