Far Cry 6 Leaks On PSN, Stars Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito [Update]

The new Far Cry game is launching on February 18, and will feature free next-gen upgrades.


Update: Following the PSN leak, Ubisoft released an official short teaser for Far Cry 6, starring Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito. The brief look teases an upcoming full reveal at Ubisoft Forward, which takes place on Sunday, July 12.

Original story follows...

A listing for Far Cry 6 has leaked on the Hong Kong PlayStation Store, revealing that Breaking Bad star Giancarlo Esposito will appear in the first-person shooter sequel.

The listing, which has since been taken down, sheds some light on the setting for Ubisoft's sequel. Far Cry 6 will take place in Yara, which is described as a tropical paradise in need of restoration to its former glory. Its ruthless dictator, Anton Castillo, and his son Diego are on a path to achieving that through any means necessary, igniting a revolution in the region.

Given the box art present in the listing, it's safe to assume that Esposito will likely be playing the role of Anton Castillo. The rest of the listing also sheds light on the upgrade path you can expect for next-gen consoles. Far Cry 6 will launch on PS4 and PS5 and offer a free upgrade for digital purchases should you move from an older console to a newer one. This is like how Microsoft is handling upgrades with Smart Delivery on the Xbox Series X, but Ubisoft has yet to confirm its support for the program.

According to the store page, Far Cry 6 is scheduled to launch on February 18, 2021. Ubisoft is hosting its Ubisoft Forward stream this Sunday, July 12, where you can expect to hear more about this and more Ubisoft titles such as Watch Dogs: Legion and Hyper Scape.
