Ubisoft has dropped a bombshell over night, announcing both a “new era” for Assassin’s Creed, as well as the next main entry in the Far Cry series.
Alongside a bunch of not-so-cryptic but still light on information tweets about Assassin’s Creed‘s next entry, Ubisoft also announced Far Cry 5, and that, like the aforementioned, it will be released before the end of the current fiscal year.
As is the case with Assassin’s Creed, we could very well be playing a new Far Cry before the end of the year.
That seems unlikely however, and Ubisoft appears likely to release one of the two in the busy September-November period, with the other to be released before the end of March 2018.
Far Cry 5 was officially announced in the company’s recent fiscal report. There’s no information on the game, and all we have is a logo.
We know that it will be its own self-contained game, however, and certainly not a spin-off like Far Cry Primal or Blood Dragon, 2013’s fantastic expansion add-on for Far Cry 3.
The game is expected to be revealed at E3 2017 during Ubisoft’s pre-showing briefing, which takes place on June 12 at 1pm PT (June 13, 6am AEST).
