Weird rumors are circling in the world of video games since a random Redditor opened a discussion about a new free Far Cry game on Far Cry Reddit. These rumors suggested that Ubisoft is ready to launch the next game of the series, which will be free-to-play.
Posting on Reddit about the new free Far Cry game, which is apparently called Far Cry: Frenzy, says that Ubisoft wanted to launch the game in August but due to bugs Far Cry’s launch was delayed.
It looks like Ubisoft is gearing up for the game next month. Far Cry: Frenzy is supposed to be a 12 player multiplayer with a map maker inside it. According to the leaker, the game will be around 27GB and will only come as a digital download.
Since there is no marketing campaign yet, the leak suggests that Ubisoft has paid streamers and content creators to play Far Cry: Frenzy when the game is launched. However, there is no further explanation on the launch of the game. For a source to be credible, at least information must be given about what the company wants to achieve. In recent years, the series has had 2 major games: Far Cry 5 and Far Cry: New Dawn.
However, this is not the first time these voices have appeared. Commentators report that they have previously discovered this news. Ubisoft has yet to say anything about the issue, making the situation even more mysterious.
When it comes to AAA games, companies don’t take many risks in launching them without a genuine marketing campaign. Especially when it comes to multiplayer games whose existence is based solely on players telling them to their friends.
Many questions still remain unanswered about this free Far Cry game. Will there be a beta phase? Will it just be multiplayer? What are the features of a mapmaker? Where will the game take place? We hope to find out more in the coming weeks in order to decide if we should be enthusiastic or if this is just another scam.
