Far Cry can get the Assassin’s Creed Infinity live service treatment
Ubisoft is bleeding staff and its salary increases are like candy to retain staff. A recent high-profile departure is Dan Hay, who is one of the main main producers of the Far Cry series. But the nature of the game he was working on until he left is probably more striking than that.
GamesBeat reports that Ubisoft intends to turn the upcoming Far Cry game into a type of live-service title. This would make the next entry in the series very much in line with the model the Assassin’s Creed series is heading towards with Infinity. Hay supervised this project until the announcement of his departure, after 10 years at the publisher.
With Far Cry 6 released relatively recently, we won’t be hearing about this live service sequel anytime soon. But judging by the details we had of Assassin’s Creed Infinity, that doesn’t really paint a pretty picture.
Of course, with social media being what it is, there’s the usual speculation Hay left behind because he disagreed with the direction the show is heading. Being with the show since Far Cry 3 is an understandable prospect to have. But this is something that will likely never be confirmed by Hay himself or Ubisoft.
