GameStop Lists Far Cry 5 for Launch in November 2017

Post by Admin on Tue Dec 12, 2017 12:37 pm

Chalk this one firmly up as a rumour for now, but the Irish branch of retailer GameStop has just listed for release in 2017. Ubisoft has yet to announce Far Cry 5 even exists, yet GameStop seems confident enough in it to slap a November 26, 2017 date on it.
Looking through the list of of GameStops’s ‘PlayStation 4 Software Upcoming Releases’, is right there. SG Gaming Info contacted GameStop and reference Far Cry 5’s SKU code in an effort to obtain more information. All they were told is that Far Cry 5 isn’t in stock and they didn’t know when stock was going to be made available.

Looking at the timeline of Far Cry games it would make a great deal of sense if Ubisoft came out with a new title in the series later this year. Far Cry Primal launched roughly a year ago so by then it will have been about 20 months. There was exactly two years between Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4.
All this then raises the question, what direction could Ubisoft be planning to go with Far Cry 5? There was a survey doing the rounds a couple of years back with all sorts of crazy suggestions, including dinosaurs, zombies and aliens. Presumably this is what led us to the Far Cry Primal spin-off, although it would nice to see Ubisoft address the crazier side of the series once more.
On a personal note I’d dread to see Ubisoft stick to the same formula it’s used for the two main outings. We need a more drastic leap between Far Cry 4 and Far Cry 5 or it’s going to feel like we’re retreading the same ground. Far Cry 4 already had a serious case of deja vu, compounded when Ubisoft re-used the same topography for Far Cry Primal.
