Hay, who was one of the “rotating forces” behind the icon Far Cry Series, left the company. In the report, it was mentioned that Hay was already working on the next entry in the series, which Ubisoft announced as launching a “live service” game similar to the next Assassin’s Creed Infinity. Such a report came about a month ago by Axios (as shown by VideoGamesChronicle) and was somewhat suggested by Jason Schreier of Bloomberg.
It is currently not clear what exactly a live service is Far Cry would look like the report does not mention too much otherwise, but it would not be too shocking to see that Ubisoft is trying to dive into the model of games. If it’s something like Ubisoft’s plans for Assassin’s Creed InfinityHowever, the game will likely try to integrate multiplayer aspects as well as a variety of staples to the live service genre.

Live service players quickly took over the world of the game, with titles like Fortnite, Apex Legends, Fate, and more changes the way players have been interacting with players recently. While Far Cry is traditionally known for its heavy focus on single-player narratives, the open world and generally chaotic nature of the gameplay from the series would lend itself well to a constant update title.
