Where to Next for Far Cry? Hope is on the Wagon

Over a number of years we've explored -- in-depth -- where we think Ubisoft Montreal (and support studios) could take the Far Cry franchise to next. From Australia to space with other explorations and deep-dives on the series in between. This time around, we've honed our design exploration skills to another frontier, and it's a wild one, too.

Without remaining too coy, we've decided that with Far Cry 5's rich and creative fictional Hope County married against the true history of the state of Montana and taking into account Far Cry New Dawn's setting, that rounding out both games with a third act in prequel form, would be a fantastic idea with an aim to also test out new gameplay ideas against tried and tested Far Cry-isms.

Here's a snippet:
During my panel with Dan and James, I asked a question about how they felt seeing other studios and gaming ventures who had borrowed, lightly or heavily, from Far Cry. Was it pride or frustration? The initial response was that in their formative years it would have been along the lines of “you sons of b******, you stole our ideas”, but contemporarily, they see it as a boon -- though they were quick to point out that it would be creatively frustrating (in a positive way) to see a studio do something “better than we did”.

To this point, I posit that the studio maintains this more contemporary disposition and equally borrows from elsewhere -- just foundationally, for at least the first part of what I propose for Far Cry: Hope County. And where I’d be looking is Metro Exodus… bear with me here.

I think Farcry is stale at this point, same s***, different bucket. Perhaps they need to come up with some new game ideas for a while.
