Far Cry 6 Release Date Moved Up A Month According To New Retailer Listing

Ubisoft's Far Cry 6 was revealed back at the publisher's first Ubisoft Forward showcase in July but was delayed later in the year.

Well, after a leaked release date, the game may actually be coming out earlier than expected.

Far Cry 6 May Have A New Release Date

Dutch retailer Proxis (spotted by GamingBible) has listed the game for release on April 30, 2021, which is a month earlier than the May release day that was listed back in November last year.

It's worth noting that this date lands on a Friday this year, which tends to be when most AAA games release, although Ubisoft has stuck to a Tuesday and Thursday in recent months.

Either way, a Friday release is certainly plausible and we may even see a new Ubisoft Forward in the coming weeks to show the first gameplay and reveal details about the game.

Far Cry 6 takes place on the island of Yara, run by the tyrannical dictator Antón Castillo. Antón is played by Giancarlo Esposito, the beloved villain who has been in shows like Better Call Saul and The Mandalorian.
