Farming Simulator 17 is coming at the end of 2016

If you had told me a couple of years ago that there would be wide-spread excitement about a farming simulator being announced, and I don't mean an MMORPG, I would have considered you insane and yet, here we are.

Farming Simulator 17, the latest iteration of the incredibly popular franchise, will be coming to the PC and consoles later this year. This information comes from a short quote Cédric Lagarrigue, president of Focus Home Interactive, gave when talking about the upcoming Paris press event:

"Farming Simulator is a one of a kind story in the video game industry. Years ago, we imagined a unique destiny for this game and Giants Software, their creators. It is with great satisfaction that we succeed in reaching all of our objectives.

There are still a lot of beautiful pages to write for Farming Simulator, and it starts right now with the simultaneous release of the game on PC and consoles at the end of the year."

I'm afraid this is one of those "announcement of an announcement" sort of situations and as such there are no actual details about Farming Simulator 17 other than the fact that its a thing that exists.

If you're interested in some gameplay details and what exactly will differentiate Farming Simulator 17 from its predecessors you'll have to be patient and wait for the Focus Home Interactive Paris press event kick off in the near future. Once it does I'll make sure to update you with the relevant info.
