The game’s launch, originally slated for Feb. 18, 2021, was delayed back in October, partly because of challenges encountered during the COVID-19 pandemic. But it was also partly a strategic decision by Ubisoft’s corporate leadership. Grivel said his team — comprising developers at Ubisoft’s Toronto, Montreal, Kiev, Shanghai, Berlin, Philippines, and Montpellier, France studios — all appreciated the extra time and used it to refine Far Cry 6 to meet the public’s blockbuster-movie expectations.

“It gave us the time to deliver the full Far Cry 6 experience we wanted to deliver, with quality, on all the platforms that we support,” Grivel said. The game launches on Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. “I believe it’s awesome for us because, you know, in this industry it’s not always that we have the time to make things the right way, to really balance them, and make them really refined. That extension [of time] is really welcome, from that perspective.”

Uhm, no. It launches October 7th.
You are right the website is clearly wrong

Thanks mods for the title change

It's that time of the year. Developers and publishers are lining up for big blowouts of their upcoming flagship releases. We recently got a gameplay deep dive of Far Cry 6, which was accompanied by previews and interviews going up all around. As a result, we've learned a great deal about the upcoming open world first person shooter, and here, that's exactly what we're going to be talking about.

Thank fuck a fall release. I was worried it would be barren after the typical deluge of quality games usually released in the summer

This looks like it could actually be fun but then most Far Crys do pre release and then I always get burnt out on them ~20 hours in.

Hoping the amount of variety on show in this world map makes a difference this time. The world needs a modern first person just cause 2.

i recently tried to play FC New dawn, nah Im done. It was boring AF with zero challenge in any way. Terrible AI and terrible design all around.

For the first time in franchise history - become the villain.

You are Vaas. You are Pagan Min. You are Joseph Seed. Play as past villains with the #FarCry6 Season Pass. Watch now and learn more.

Ubisoft's Navid Khavari and Benjamin Hall take us on a short guided tour of Yara, the island of Far Cry 6. We talk about the politics behind the story as well as the slapstick action of the gameplay, alligators in t-shirts and how Macarena became the weaponised music disk of choice.

I respect people that are all into this IP, but for me, it definitely peaked at 3. I feel like they've been trying WAY too hard to make lightning strike twice. But all they're doing is just dancing around the same exact formula. :(

This one looks more enticing than 4 and 5 to me. But I still don't know when and if I'd ever bite unfortunately.

Truth! I’m purchasing because I skipped part 5. I’m honestly looking forward to this.
