With Far Cry being one of Ubisoft’s most successful franchises, it’s no surprise that a new installment is in the works, but where will the next game take place? We could be learning that next month.

According to Game Reactor, Far Cry 6 will be announced during the Ubisoft Forward event, which is set for July 12. This is an E3-style, digital conference that will feature “plenty of exclusive game news, exciting reveals, and much more.”

Game Reactor also claims that Far Cry 6 will be set in a location that’s far and away from the fifth installment’s Minnesota wilderness. Most of the previous games were set at exotic, eastern locales (e.g., Shangri-La and the Indonesian-based Rook Islands), so Ubisoft may be plotting a return to an Asian-inspired country.

“I don’t want to ruin all of Ubisoft’s plans by giving you all the information, but I can say with certainty that those of you who didn’t like Far Cry 5 ‘s North American setting are likely to find this game more interesting when it’s officially unveiled during Ubisoft Forward on July 12 – or leaked if the company chooses to save it for later,” teased Game Reactor.

The article also discusses the status of other rumored titles, such as Warner Bros. Montreal’s new Batman game, a Demon’s Souls remake, Fable 4, Resident Evil 8, and a Silent Hill reboot. Despite the frequent denials from Konami, it’d be interesting if it did in fact exist and debuted in the same year as a new Resident Evil title.
