Far Cry 6 Release Date Seemingly Leaked
According to the Microsoft Store, Far Cry 6 will seemingly now be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on May 25, 2021. Far Cry 6's previous release date was set for February 18, 2021, but was delayed to Ubisoft's Fiscal Year 2021-22 due to the impact of COVID-19, and this Microsoft listing may have confirmed the delay won't be too long. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/07/12/far-cry-6-reveal-trailer"] This date could obviously change and may be a placeholder, but the Microsoft Store has a history of revealing release dates a bit early for games like Immortals Fenyx Rising, Mafia: Definitive Edition, and Mafia 2: Definitive Edition. Far Cry 6 was revealed earlier this year and will star Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian's Giancarlo Esposito as Antón Castillo, the game's main villain. Castillo is preparing his son Diego for leadership of the totalitarian island state of Yara, and players will take on the role of Dani Rojas, a Yaran guerrilla revolutionary, who must put an end to the chaos. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=far-cry-6-images&captions=true"] Ubisoft recently shared details on how Far Cry 6 will run on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, and confirmed that the game will run at 4K / 60FPS on both next-gen consoles, and each one will offer a free upgrade from last-gen consoles. For more on Far Cry 6, read/watch out interview with Esposito, in which he discuses Anton's motives, his layered characterization, and reveals a bit more about Yara.
