Far Cry 6 official artwork showing the main antagonists in the car

[Update #2]: Far Cry 6 has now arrived onto PC and consoles with a few new twists on the age-old Ubisoft formula.

[Update]: Due to the pandemic, Far Cry 6's release date been pushed back.

While the announcement shouldn't come as too much of a surprise given the recent leak, Ubisoft has now officially revealed Far Cry 6. The gameplay details are unfortunately still few and far between, but you can expect Far Cry 6 to take place in a jungle environment, have you face off against yet another tyrannical ruler, and perhaps most importantly of all, pair up with an adorable (and apparently quite deadly) wiener dog companion!

If you're hoping the cinematic trailer will focus on the wiener dog and its adventures, I'm afraid you're out of luck, but it's not all that bad as the trailer itself is actually quite fetching! Have a gander, it sets up the mood rather well:

As for the release date, Far Cry 6 will be making its way to PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Google Stadia on February 18, 2021. All things considered, a surprisingly short wait!
