Far Cry 7 and Far Cry Multiplayer are reportedly in development at Ubisoft

Ubisoft is reportedly working on both Far Cry 7 – the next major installment in the series – and a standalone Far Cry multiplayer game.

This message is from Insider Gamerbut has now been confirmed by kotaku. Sources state that Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot referenced these two upcoming Far Cry releases during an internal company update last week.

Additionally, the same sources revealed that Far Cry 7 (known internally as Project Blackbird) will be built using Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine, which is the same engine used for the Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora game. Just as a general point of interest, the latest entries in the Far Cry series used the Dunia engine.

As for multiplayer (known internally as Project Maverick), Insider Gaming reports that it was originally intended to be part of the main Far Cry game, but evolved into a standalone title early in development.

Sources claim Maverick is an extraction-based shooter rumored to be based in “the Alaskan wilderness.”

It will reportedly include “mechanics like permadeath, a backpack system, contracts, and more.” The “and more” here could probably refer to lootable chests and extraction zones, which Insider Gaming has seen screenshots of.

When asked for further comment on these reports, Ubisoft’s spokesman told Eurogamer: “We do not comment on rumors or speculation.”

Meanwhile, Ubisoft announced earlier this month that it had canceled three “unannounced” titles and rescheduled its troubled pirate ship game, Skull and Bones. This is all in addition to the four projects previously abandoned last summer.

As for those canceled projects, we now know that one of them is Project Q, Ubisoft’s low-detail PvP battle arena game.

All in all, it’s been a difficult start to the year for Ubisoft and its employees, with the situation not being helped by controversial comments from the company’s CEO, Yves Guillemot. The Ubisoft boss reportedly told employees: “The ball was in [their] Court” to deliver games “on time and with the expected quality” and transform the company.

Guillemot has reportedly apologized for these comments.
