It has been reported that Ubisoft are reportedly working on both Far Cry 7 – the next instalment in the Far Cry franchise – as well as a standalone Far Cry multiplayer game. This news originally came from Insider Gamer as well as being supported by Kotaku. Although details are scarce at the moment, the sources believe these two releases were originally meant to be one game under the supervision of Dan Hay, Far Cry’s former overseer at Ubisoft Montreal.

It is also believed that the multiplayer instalment, known as Project Maverick, could possibly be a extraction-based shooter set in the Alaskan wilderness. However less is known about Far Cry 7, code-named Project Blackbird, including its title or where it will be based. However it could be assumed that it will also feature similar environments due to the two games being one at the start of development.

Where will Far Cry 7 be set?

Due to the limited information we have so far, the games are set to be a few years away with Autumn of 2025 being a rough estimate. Insider also mentions that Ubisoft were contacted before their report but refused, saying “We don’t comment on rumours or speculation”. Either way, with mixed reviews on its latest instalment, Far Cry 6, Ubisoft has a challenge on their hands with their standalone multiplayer looking to be a way for them to make a successful live-service game.

Sources have shared with Kotaku that “Ubisoft has been trying to make a fully multiplayer Far Cry game for many years now” which were either unsuccessful or were adapted into the single-player games they have since released. Although this is currently speculation, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has previously mentioned both of these games “in an internal company update last week, according to sources present”.
