Far Cry 7 Is A Live Service Game Similar To Assassin's Creed Infinity - Report

Rumored details on the next Far Cry game have emerged as executive producer Dan Hay leaves the team.


Far Cry boss Dan Hay, who was the franchise's executive producer for the past decade, is leaving Ubisoft amid reports that the next game in the series will adopt a live-service approach similar to what's rumored for Assassin's Creed Infinity.

Hay's last day at Ubisoft will be November 12, a spokesperson confirmed to VGC. There is no word yet on what Hay is doing next, and Ubisoft said only that the developer is "pursuing a new chapter in his professional life."

Hay started with Ubisoft in 2011 as a producer on Far Cry 3, according to his LinkedIn page. He worked on numerous entries in the series thereafter, and was most recently executive producer and creative director for the series.

Before joining Ubisoft, Hay worked at Raven Software on games like X-Men Legends and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. He moved to Day 1 Studios in 2007 and worked on Fracture and Fear 3 at the studio.

Ubisoft is looking to fill Hay's role permanently, but in the interim, the Far Cry brand team will be managed by 15-year Ubisoft veteran Sandra Warren in Montreal.

As for the next Far Cry game, reporter Jeff Grubb says it will be a live-service game similar to the Assassin's Creed Infinity project. Far Cry 6 only just released in October, and Ubisoft has plans to support the game with lots of DLC and updates over time, so the company is unlikely to discuss any future projects anytime soon. GameSpot has contacted Ubisoft for comment.

Recently, Kotaku reported that Ubisoft's teams in Canada have been bleeding talent, and the company is offering pay rises to senior leaders to keep people on board.

Ubisoft is also facing ongoing pressure regarding its alleged "frat house" workplace culture of sexism and abuse. Ubisoft said it made changes to its workplace environment, but the changes have been referred to by a workers' advocacy group as empty promises.
