Ubisoft Reveals Far Cry 5, New Assassin's Creed

Ubisoft is developing several big titles like Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, Assassin's Creed, and South Park for the upcoming year.

Ahead of Ubisoft's quarterly earnings call, the French video game company announced that Far Cry 5 is in development, and will aim to release some time before April 2018.

"In 2017-18 we will see the exciting returns of Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, The Crew and South Park [Fractured but Whole]," said Ubisoft in a statement.

Far Cry 5 joins several other major Ubisoft titles scheduled for the year including, a new Assassin's Creed, The Crew 2, and South Park: Fractured but Whole. All games are scheduled for Ubisoft's 2017-2018 fiscal year, which runs from April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018.

Ubisoft tweeted Far Cry 5's logo on the game's official Twitter account today teasing "new Far Cry adventures."

Far Cry 5 follows Far Cry Primal which took the series back into the prehistoric ages. Rumors continue to develop around Far Cry 5's setting and time period, including some suggesting it will be set in Montana, although there is no official confirmation.
