“Thanks to the millions of players who joined the fight,” the statement reads. “Your adventures can continue in Yara without interruption of online services. However, the dev team will no longer be making updates to Far Cry 6.

Press reports earlier this year claimed that Ubisoft is currently developing Far Cry 7 and a standalone Far Cry multiplayer game.
It’s claimed that Far Cry 7 is being made with Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine, rather than the Dunia engine used for recent series entries. The multiplayer game is currently an extraction-based shooter set in the Alaskan wilderness, it’s claimed.
Both titles are said to be tentatively scheduled for release in the fall/autumn of 2025.
Ubisoft has also been making numerous appointments and promotions surrounding the Far Cry brand, to prepare for the series’ future.
In August, Ubisoft Montreal veteran Sandra Warren was promoted to vice president and executive producer of the Far Cry brand.
Warren joined Ubisoft in 2006 and has been involved in the Far Cry series since 2016’s Primal. Most recently, she was the brand producer for Far Cry 6.
Earlier that month, Ubisoft also promoted Far Cry 5 writer Drew Holmes to Far Cry IP director. VGC understands Warren will have the most senior role of the pair in terms of production, while Holmes will oversee the creative roadmap for the series.
