Ubisoft has confirmed that Far Cry 6 will no longer receive further updates and patches but online services will continue. The open-world shooter released in October 2021 and gave players a new sandbox to unleash chaos in. It received mostly positive reviews, particularly for its central antagonist Anton Castillo played by Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito. With the single-player patch work done, it looks like Far Cry 6 is about as updated as it will get.
The official Far Cry Twitter/X account recently posted a tweet confirming the news. Updates and patches will no longer roll in for Far Cry 6 but all online services will continue to be supported for the foreseeable future.
The tweet from Ubisoft regarding Far Cry 6‘s discontinuation of updates reads:
“Thanks to the millions of players who joined the fight. Your adventures can continue in Yara without interruption of online services. However, the dev team will no longer be making updates to Far Cry 6. We appreciate your passion, creativity and love of Chorizo, even Anton is proud.”
It seems like Ubisoft is setting its sights on the franchise’s future. Back in August, Ubisoft promoted Far Cry 5 and New Dawn lead writer Drew Holmes as the new director of the Far Cry series and promised “big things” to come.
According to previous reports, there are a couple of Far Cry projects currently in development. The first is Far Cry 7, the next mainline entry in the series which will apparently be set in the Alaskan wilderness. New leaked details claim that it will feature a non-linear, time-limited story where players have 72 hours of in-game time or 24 hours in real-time to rescue their kidnapped family from a conspiracy group called the ‘Sons of Truth.’ The other project in development is a standalone multiplayer game that will reportedly be an extraction-based shooter.
