The Far Cry series is a Ubisoft staple, with Ubisoft Montreal helming every game, except for the very first one which was developed by Crytek. Each Far Cry game takes place in a completely new setting, with some sort of powerful dictator or threat that needs to be deposed. While the existence of a new Far Cry game was being speculated, the existence of Far Cry 6 first leaked through a listing on the PlayStation Store.

With both Far Cry 4 and Far Cry 5 selling over 10 million copies, it’s safe to say this is going to be a big game. Ubisoft is going to share more about Far Cry 6 at Ubisoft Forward but fortunately, there’s already a decent amount of info in the wild. Here’s everything we know about Far Cry 6.

Like past Far Cry games, this is an open world first-person shooter. Players will have access to a variety of vehicles and weapons as they fight against the regime. You’ll also be able to employ Amigos, guns for hire.

Is Far Cry 6 a prequel?

Fans are beginning to theorize that Far Cry 6 is a prequel to Far Cry 3. The young boy Diego has a scar on his right eyebrow in roughly the same spot as Vaas.

This is the only evidence the theory is based on so far though.
