Rumour – Ubisoft’s New Far Cry Multiplayer Game Is An Extraction-Based Shooter

According to a report on Insider Gaming, Ubisoft is working on a second Far Cry game separate from Far Cry 7, which will take the form of an extraction-based multiplayer shooter.

While the next mainline entry in the series, codenamed Project Blackbird, is currently in the pipeline as previously reported, a separate multiplayer Far Cry game known as Project Maverick is also in the works, and has changed scope numerous times over its development cycle. The report claims that the Far Cry multiplayer title will take place in a fictional Alaskan setting known as Alashnica.

Both Far Cry 7 and this new multiplayer game were at one point believed to be under the same banner, at which point it was codenamed Talisker. However, changes in management and scope resulted in the projects being split.

According to the repot, players are lured into the area with the promise of freedom, but discover the land in chaos and very little trust between the population. Players will have to scavenge for resources to survive, including skinning animals to craft gear and harvesting plants to craft medical supplies. There’s also a Hideout that acts as your base, and serves as a safe zone to store any gathered weapons and gear.

The new Far Cry game is designed as a “high-risk, high-reward” experience and features permadeath, which means if players die, the will lose all their equipment, perks, and levels. Anything you store at your Hideout will be saved, however.

Ubisoft hasn’t announced anything about a second Far Cry game at this point (nor has it announced Far Cry 7, for that matter) so take all this with a pinch of salt for the time being.
