Far Cry 6 release date and other information has been leaked and confirmed to be coming to both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Ahead of the planned Ubisoft Forward event planned for July 12 at 2:00 p.m. ET, the game and its pre-order information were leaked on the actual PlayStation Store of all places. So far Ubisoft has kept silent regarding the revelation

The game is slated to be the "largest Far Cry playground to date," as its store description reads, with the typical jungle and tropical setting that we've come to expect from the series. The country's capital - Esperanza - will also come into play in some form for exploration and storyline advancement.

As was leaked in the game art above, and teased by the actor himself, Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian star Giancarlo Esposito will be playing the role of the games main villain. As a dictator in the fictional country of Yara, which looks to be heavily inspired by Cuba, players will be able to "Employ makeshift weapons, vehicles, and Amigos, the new Fangs for Hire to burn the tyrannical regime to the ground," the description concludes.

Far Cry 6 Release Date

The title is slated to release on Feb. 18, 2021, for both PS4 as well as PS5. The game will also feature an upgrade for the PS5 for free should players own the PS4 version initially. So far, there's been no word on an Xbox version. That information will probably be shared during the Ubisoft Forward event.
