Far Cry 5 gets next-gen update on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X

Fans are now hoping that Ubisoft will apply a similar next-gen update for older Far Cry games, specifically Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4.

Take a trip back to Hope County, Montana, and tangle with Joseph Seed and his cult in 60 FPS on the PlayStation 5, as well as the Xbox Series S and X, with the latest patch for Far Cry 5.

Fingers crossed, next-gen patches for Far Cry 3 and 4 are next.

Ubisoft confirmed the new patch for Far Cry 5 applies to the single-player campaign, co-op, arcade, and downloadable content.

Far Cry 5 came out in 2018 to much critical acclaim. Many consider it one of the best Far Cry games, right up there along with Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4. It eventually receives three largely forgettable pieces of DLC and a spin-off of sorts in Far Cry New Dawn.

Ubisoft is also making Far Cry 5 free to play from March 23 through March 27 on all platforms. So, this is the perfect time to check out Far Cry 5 if you haven't alredy.

Here's an idea for Ubisoft: try remaking the first two Far Cry games.

Ubisoft has been teasing Far Cry a lot lately, which has led to speculation that bigger announcements are coming. We've still got some time left before the company's three-week promise runs its course, so we'll just have to wait to find out.

In the meantime, some theorize that Ubisoft will announce Far Cry 7, which is one-half of Ubisoft's reportedly in-development Far Cry projects.

Ubisoft is going through a rough patch after delaying and/or postponing several ongoing projects. Companies reportedly laughed at Ubisoft while it was feeling out buyers for a potential sale.

In an attempt to turn things around, Ubisoft is believed to be going "all in" on the Assassin's Creed franchise. The French publisher is set to release more new games like The Crew Motorfest, XDefiant, as well as Assassin's Creed Mirage and a Star Wars game sometime in the future.
