Far Cry 6 retail dates ‘are all placeholder’
The Microsoft Store lists a release date for Far Cry 6, either the 25th or 26th of May 2021 depending on your region.
Ubisoft recently delayed a number of its big games – including Far Cry 6 and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Quarantine – into the next financial year. That means a late-May release date fits the earlier announcements, but Ubisoft is not particularly interested in clarifying.
Placeholder: “Per last month’s earnings call, Far Cry 6 will launch in fiscal year 2021-2022. Dates posted to retail sites currently should be considered placeholder, as we have nothing to confirm at this time,” stated Ubisoft in response to our request for comment. The Far Cry 6 premiere trailer aired during Ubisoft Forward in July and revealed that Giancarlo Esposito plays the villain.
