Far Cry 6 Release Date Seemingly Revealed By Xbox Store Page

Far Cry 6 looks set to arrive in the middle of 2021.


Far Cry 6 was recently delayed out of its February 2021 release slot, with no new date set. Ubisoft still has not made any official announcement on when the game will arrive, but it seems that Xbox may have spilled the beans, with a new release date being listed on the game's Xbox store page.

Twitter sleuth Wario64 shared that a date had been listed for Far Cry 6 by the store page, and it's about three months later than was originally planned--May 25, 2021.

Now Playing: Far Cry 6's New Setting: What We Know So Far

This does not mean that the game will definitely land on this date, but it seems likely. Hopefully we'll get official confirmation from Ubisoft soon.

The game is coming to Xbox One and PS4, but it'll be enhanced on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, making it the first proper Far Cry game for next-gen. The new game will bring back a voiced protagonist after Far Cry 5's blank slate, and features Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, The Mandalorian) as villain Presidente Anton Castillo.
