Game news Far Cry 7 is in development, another multiplayer game (in Alaska) on the way?
To share :
The Far Cry saga obviously still has it up its sleeve. She knows, after all, pretty commercial figures and it has been said for some time now that Ubisoft was working on several new games: the latter are resurfacing through a new rumor supported by anonymous sources.
On the road again
This isn’t the first time rumors have gone around that Far Cry 7 is in development. A while ago already, in October 2021, we told you about it and it seemed that the game was part of a pronounced multiplayer: today, a new rumor comes to us from Insider Gaming, a site now known for its many unpublished scoops. As the media indicates, he bases his statements on two sources who wished to remain anonymous, not being authorized to speak about the following projects.
Two Far Cry games would thus be in development. The first would be Far Cry 7 while the second would be a multiplayer Far Cry. Apparently, they were one and the same game once upon a time: its codename was Project Talisker and was apparently piloted by Dan Hay, a figure from Ubisoft and the Far Cry series who recently joined Blizzard Entertainment. Ultimately, this Project Talisker would have been “divided” into two separate projects at the start of development. Both would be linked to Ubisoft Montreal.
Far Cry 7 would thus be called, internally, by the code name Project Blackbirdbut details are still scarce about him.
The other title, the multiplayer Far Cry therefore, would be called Project Maverick internally. Insider Gaming states that according to its sources, the setting would take place in the Alaskan wilderness : this is not the first time that we have heard of a snowy setting for the series since in 2015, a survey conducted by Ubisoft among players already pointed to such a universe.
Other interesting information: this Project Maverick would be an extraction-based shooter with permadeath mechanics, a backpack system, contracts and other such treats. Rather fashionable cogs and moreover already exploited by Ubisoft, for example with Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction.
Images have even been provided to Insider Gaming, who are content to describe them without publishing them: these would contain loot chests or extraction areas.
Finally, the site estimates, according to the information provided, that the release window would be considered for fall 2025. He also reportedly contacted Ubisoft, which responded “do not comment on rumors and speculation”. It goes without saying that all of these details should not be taken at face value and well and truly with tweezers.
