'Far Cry 7' Will Be A More Online-Focused Game

Far Cry 6 has only just launched, but Ubisoft is already hard at work on the future of the popular open-world shooter franchise.

While the latest installment is an undeniably gorgeous game with plenty to see and do, the consensus so far seems to be that the tried-and-tested Far Cry formula is starting to get a little old. Far Cry 7, then, needs to try something fresh. Fortunately, it sounds like Ubisoft is moving forward with innovation in mind... although it's a potential change that won't be to everyone's taste.

Take a look at Far Cry 6 in action below!

According to a new report from Axios, sources close to development on the next Far Cry game have indicated that Far Cry 7 will be "more online-oriented" than previous games. It's unclear what exactly this means, but given that Far Cry 6 already features online co-op multiplayer, I'd assume pushing further into online territory would mean adopting certain MMO elements, or some kind of shared world.

This comments echoes a report from Bloomberg's Jason Schreier, who said earlier this year that Ubisoft is looking to "go in a radically different direction for Far Cry" with the next entry.

A more online-focused Far Cry also lines up with Assassin's Creed Infinity, the mysterious new project from Ubisoft that aims to reimagine Assassin's Creed as some kind of constantly evolving service - effectively a growing hub for new adventures that are linked more cohesively. Given Far Cry is Ubisoft's other major AAA franchise, it wouldn't be too much of a shocker to see it grow and change in a similar way.

For now, we have Far Cry 6 to enjoy. Far Cry 7, whatever it ends up being, is a problem for future us.
