In 2021, Jeff Grubb reported on GamesBeat that the next Far Cry would be a live-service title following the departure of series executive director Dan Hay. However, Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson is reporting two new Far Cry games are in development.

One of these is presumed to be a single-player experience, Far Cry 7, while the other is multiplayer-only. They were reportedly one game early on as Project Talisker under Hay before his departure. Far Cry 7 is internally referred to as Project Blackbird, while Project Maverick is the multiplayer title. Ubisoft Montreal is heavily involved in both.

There aren’t a lot of details, but two anonymous sources revealed that Maverick changed several times over the past year. It’s reportedly an extraction-based shooter set in the Alaskan wilderness and features contracts, backpacks and permadeath. Though there is the threat of other players, you’ll need to worry as much, if not more, about the wildlife and freezing weather.

Insider Gaming has seen screenshots of extraction zones, loot chests and more that line up with this premise but can’t publicly show them. Both titles are apparently a couple of years off, at least, and tentatively targeting Fall 2025. Ubisoft responded to the report with, “We don’t comment on rumors or speculation”.

The far-off release lines up with Kotaku’s report on the next Far Cry being further out than Ubisoft originally planned. Time will tell if it manages to hit it, or if there will be delays, as seen with recent projects like Skull and Bones and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.
