Far Cry 7 And A Multiplayer Far Cry Reportedly Being Developed

Ubisoft is report­ed­ly devel­op­ing two Far Cry titles, one being the usu­al sin­gle-play­er expe­ri­ence, and the oth­er an online mul­ti­play­er game.

Insid­er Gam­ing report­ed the unan­nounced Far Cry title was orig­i­nal­ly meant to be one game, until for­mer fran­chise exec­u­tive direc­tor for the series, Dan Hay, left Ubisoft to work for Bliz­zard. The report goes on the claim that the sin­gle-play­er project is being referred to as Project Black­bird, while the mul­ti­play­er Far Cry is nick­named Project Mav­er­ick. Ubisoft Mon­tre­al appears to be heav­i­ly involved with both titles.

Although lit­tle is known about these sup­posed games, the report sug­gests Project Mav­er­ick will be set in the Alaskan wilder­ness, and will be an extrac­tion-based loot­er-shoot­er. This hap­pens to align with a poll Ubisoft did in the past (orig­i­nal­ly spot­ted by PC Gamer), where they asked fans what loca­tion they want­ed to see the next Far Cry in–Alaska being one of those options.

This news comes just weeks after Ubisoft can­celed three unan­nounced projects and delayed Skull and Bones for the sixth time. Ubisoft also recent­ly can­celed Project Q, a bat­tle are­na game announced back in 2022. Far Cry 6 was the most recent main­line title for the fran­chise and was released in 2021. Typ­i­cal­ly, Far Cry titles focus on sin­gle-play­er with the option to play co-op. The last install­ment that fea­tured a PvP mul­ti­play­er was Far Cry 3, which was released back in 2012.
