Far Cry 5 (opens in new tab) has been announced, and even without any details to go on - seriously, nothing is known about this other than the title - Ubisoft clearly would like fans to be excited. Both on the Ubisoft forums (opens in new tab) and Twitter, the company is asking fans, "Are you ready for a hefty dose of new Far Cry adventures?"

The responses, however, are not exactly unanimous in their levels of excitement. On the Ubisoft forums, the first response is "Maybe." The second response is "Depends." Then we get to the expected "yeeeeeeeaaaahhhhhh" response.
Over on Twitter, fans are likewise split, with some saying the games have felt too copy-paste and others arguing that the series peaked with Far Cry 3. It's all very interesting to watch.

And while (again, I can't stress this enough) no details are yet confirmed, many are hoping for this new entry to be set in the Wild West. It was a popular setting in a survey sent out asking players what they'd like next from the series, but so was a Far Cry game about vampires so... *shrug*
Whatever it's about and wherever it's set, Far Cry 5 is set to be released sometime before April 2018.
