This decision marks the end of a journey for the title, which has seen numerous expansions and improvements since its release. In a heartfelt message to the community, Ubisoft expressed gratitude to the “millions of players” who joined the fight in Yara.
The developers assured that while the online services for “Far Cry 6” will continue without interruption, the team will shift their focus away from developing new content for the game. This means that players can still enjoy the game’s online features, but should not hold out for new downloadable content (DLC) or significant game updates.

While some players are disappointed by the lack of future updates, others are excited about the potential of new titles in the “Far Cry” series. Rumors are already circulating about new projects under the “Far Cry” banner, though details remain sparse.
