If you're wondering how long Far Cry 6 is, the length of the campaign and the time to beat, then we have all the info based on multiple people's playthroughs. So if you want to know how long it takes to finish we can help. That said, there no definitive answer as this is a big, open world game with a lot of options and activities. You could just drill through the story but what about all the side missions, fishing, hunting, racing, treasure hunts, challenges and all the rest in Far Cry 6. Absolutely saying how long Far Cry 6 is and how long it takes to complete isn't really possible but we can steer you in the direction of a range of estimates depending on how much you're going to play.

Obviously there's loads you can do in Far Cry 6, so how long it takes to beat it, and the overall Far Cry 6 length depends entirely on how much you do, and how much you focus on the story. But, it's a big game whatever way you decide to approach it. If you decide to really drill into the story, avoid all the hunting and fishing and other side activities, only do a few side missions and things like specific checkpoints, then you're still looking at a good 40+ hours to finish the game.  

For some comparison, I've been playing a lot of side stuff, juggling multiple story threads at once, and clearing out all my lower level missions before pushing on. I'm about 30+ hours in and nowhere near the end. I've only taken down one of the main bad guys and half my map is currently unexplored, so I'm not even half way through. And that's also with me not touching any of the hunting or racing. All I've been doing are side missions, treasure hunts, bases, checkpoints and so on. I suspect at the rate I'm playing I'll easily hit 50-60 hours before the credits. And, to be clear, that's with me completely ignoring two major in-game activities. If you wanted to 100% things you'd easily be nudging 70-80 or more hours.
