Far Cry 5's official logo

Given the success and popularity of the Far Cry series and it spin-offs it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that Ubisoft has now officially announced Far Cry 5. What might come as a surprise, however, is that the entire announcement is one incredibly generic-looking logo and absolutely no accompanying information.

Since Ubisoft doesn't seem willing to reveal the setting or time period for Far Cry 5 just yet, allow me to share two of the most popular rumors. The first one is that Far Cry 5 will be a modern-day Western designed to compete with Red Dead Redemption 2, though personally I doubt this one is true given how Ubisoft has been uncharacteristically quick to shut down such claims. The second, and perhaps more realistic rumor, is that Far Cry 5 will let us play as a cop in rural, modern-day Montana. The reason I think rumor might have some credibility is that the only defining features of the otherwise bland logo are the red and blue colors which are commonly associated with the police.

Its a bit of a stretch, I'll be the first one to admit that, but if it does end up being true we'll get to explore a rather intriguing setting, and one that doesn't really show up in games that often. But until Ubisoft finally reveals more information I would urge you to not get overly excited because these rumors are just that - rumors!
