Ubisoft has announced that Far Cry 6 has been delayed and will no longer meet its originally planned February 18th, 2021 release date. The publisher confirmed during a financials call earlier today that the latest instalment in the popular open-world FPS franchise has hit a few snags thanks to COVID-19, and will now launch some time after April 2021.
In screenshots shared by industry analyst Daniel Ahmad, it was confirmed that both Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six: Quarantine have been delayed from there original release dates and will now arrive in the next successive financial year. That puts them both at anywhere between April 2021 and March 2022, though we'd hope it lands somewhere on the earlier end of that spectrum.

Far Cry 6 will feature Breaking Bad star Giancarlo Esposito will appear as the game's primary villain. We also learned earlier this year that this latest adventure will take place on island of Yara, "the largest Far Cry playground to date" and "a tropical paradise frozen in time". This new location will combine the same tropical locations we're used to seeing in Far Cry games with a massive urban environment, completely with skyscrapers and other buildings to battle it out in.
If you're craving a Ubisoft open-world game in the meantime, there's plenty to be getting on with. Watch Dogs: Legion is available to download on PS4, Xbox One, and PC right now, while Assassin's Creed Valhalla is coming to all current and next-gen platforms on November 10th.
