Unfortunately, because it was delayed from its initial February 2021 release date, we'll have to wait a while to see if Far Cry 6 is a good game or not.


Far Cry 6 joined the long list of delayed and postponed games of 2021 earlier in February. Ubisoft blamed the delay on the COVID-19 pandemic. A few months later in May 2021, Ubisoft revealed that Far Cry 6 will be releasing on October 7, 2021, along with a gameplay reveal.
