Right inline with their announcement of The Crew 2 as part of their annual earnings call, French publisher Ubisoft has announced the latest installment in the Far Cry franchise simply titled Far Cry 5.
Far Cry 5 comes after the the interstitial Far Cry Primal spinoff that was released early last year and saw the series take a trip back to the Stone Age complete with spears and Sabertooth tigers.
While it’s unclear what the setting for Far Cry 5 will be, there have been a number of rumors about a potential Americana setting in Montana. Though none of this is confirmed one investor during the call did ask if they were worried about perhaps competing with Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 in the fall.
Below you can see the official announcement via Twitter and we will keep this story updated as more updates break.
