Far Cry 7 #1

Far Cry 7 will reportedly have an online-oriented approach as Ubisoft looks forward to reinventing the series.

In Axios Gaming newsletter, reporter Stephen Totilo suggests that while Far Cry 6 might perform well, developer Ubisoft “appears to know a shake-up is needed.” Totilo states that his sources claim “the company was exploring a more online-oriented approach for a sequel.”

That lines up with the information earlier this year, in which Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier claimed that, “Far Cry 7 could go in a radically different direction” taking the entire series to a new place. While neither Totilo nor Schreier revealed much about the new direction that the series could go in, it’s certainly possible that Ubisoft is looking to reinvent Far Cry. The series hasn’t changed much since Far Cry 3 in 2012, even with themed spin-offs like Primal and Blood Dragon.

In that same period, however, Ubisoft rebooted the entire Assassin’s Creed franchise, starting with 2017’s Origins, but Totilo points out that other franchises, like Watch Dogs and Ghost Recon, have yet to receive similar overhauls. So, guess we wait and see what Ubisoft pulls out here.
