Far Cry 6

The Far Cry franchise is easily one of Ubisoft’s biggest and most successful properties right now, and though there isn’t much clarity yet (at least in an official capacity) on what the future holds for the franchise, we do now know who’s going to be shepherding it as we head toward that future.

As spotted by VGCFar Cry has found a new IP Director in veteran writer and narrative designer Drew Holmes. Holmes, who was previously the narrative lead on Far Cry Primal and Far Cry 5, confirmed the news on his LinkedIn page, writing in a post, “It’s been an exciting few months… I’m happy to share that I’m starting a new position as IP Director of Far Cry at Ubisoft! We have big things in store. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you want to be a part of the next evolution of this great brand!”

Prior to his work at Ubisoft, Holmes was also worked at Irrational Games, where he was the lead writer on BioShock Infinite. Prior to that, he was a writer at Volition, where he worked on the original three Saints Row titles.

Coming to Far Cry, it remains to be seen what the “big things in store” are that Holmes is referring to. That said, though Ubisoft has yet to make any official announcements, leaks have claimed that Far Cry 7 and a standalone Far Cry multiplayer game are both currently in development, with both targeting a Fall 2025 launch.
