Is Far Cry 7 In Development? A Standalone Multiplayer Game Coming Soon

Hardcore fans may wish that Far Cry 7 weren’t in the works because, if the rumors are true, it won’t resemble any of the other recent Far Cry games, including Far Cry 6 to Far Cry 3.

With the release of Far Cry 3 in 2012, Ubisoft continued to develop the Far Cry franchise, giving us one of the best games of the time. Every Far Cry game after then has attempted to build on this achievement.

The first did it exceptionally well and was Far Cry 4. Then came Far Cry 5, which failed to slightly update the concept by introducing more open-ended gameplay.

Even while Far Cry 5 received much criticism for its alterations to the franchise, it is not for this reason that it is the best-selling installment. With a weaker plot and less fascinating characters, Far Cry 6 is basically Far Cry 5. It might have been the worst Far Cry game to date if New Dawn didn’t exist.

In the gaming world, Ubisoft is well-known for creating some of the most well-liked and lucrative titles. One of their most well-known series is Far Cry, which has been beloved by players worldwide. The series fans eagerly expect information about the upcoming game, and recently, some leaks and rumors regarding Far Cry 7 have surfaced.

Far Cry 7 In The Works

Insider Gamer first reported the information, but Kotaku has subsequently confirmed it. According to sources, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot mentioned both of these next Far Cry installments last week during an internal business update.

Regarding multiplayer, which is also referred to as Project Maverick internally, Insider Gaming claims that it was originally intended to be an independent game rather than a component of the primary Far Cry game.

According to sources, Maverick is a shooter that advertises itself as headquartered in “the Alaskan wilderness.” “Mechanics such as permadeath, a bag system, contracts, and more” will purportedly be included in it. The phrase “and more” here may be referring to lootable chests and extraction zones, images of which Insider Gaming has seen.

The same sources also disclosed that Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine, which is also utilized for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, is being used to create Far Cry 7 (also known internally as Project Blackbird). As a general point of interest, the Dunia engine was used in the most current Far Cry games.

Far Cry has developed into a significant series for Ubisoft between the mainstream games and the spin-offs (the aforementioned New Dawn, Blood Dragon, and Primal), but with each new game comes more criticism for being essentially the same thing over and over again. This will definitely change with the release of Far Cry 7, although not in the way that many fans had been hoping.

According to a recent report from industry insider Jeff Grubb, a new live-service Assassin’s Creed game called Far Cry 7 is now in production and will be similar to Assassin’s Creed Infinity.

As one might anticipate, this latest report has worried and irritated Far Cry fans. Thankfully, this isn’t breaking news at the moment. It is only a rumor, and even though it comes from a trustworthy source, there is still a chance that it is false or that Ubisoft may alter its mind.

Ubisoft has not in any way acknowledged this rumor as of the time of publication. We will make sure to update the story if this situation changes.

Ubisoft revealed earlier this month that it had shelved three “unannounced” projects and put off the problematic pirate ship game Skull & Bones again. On top of the four projects it already abandoned last summer, this is all new.

We now know that one canceled project was Project Q, Ubisoft’s sparsely-detailed PvP battle arena game.

Ubisoft and its staff have had a difficult start to the year. The situation was made worse by contentious remarks by the firm’s CEO, Yves Guillemot. The CEO of Ubisoft reportedly warned employees that it was up to them to save the company by delivering games “on schedule and at the desired level of quality.”
