Far Cry 6: Ubisoft Doesn’t Want To Repeat Cyberpunk 2077’s Mistake

The French company doesn’t want to repeat what CD Projekt RED has done with Cyberpunk 2077.

That game at the launch was running fine on PC (then again, you need a stronger rig for higher settings, and that’s not even including ray tracing), but on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, the performance was sub-par (and Cyberpunk 2077 is still waiting for its next-gen version, plus it’s getting a lawsuit filed against it in June).

Here’s what Ubisoft Toronto’s David Grivel, the lead gameplay designer of Far Cry 6, had to say to VGC about the situation: „We aim to target maximum quality on all of these platforms. As we go in the next few weeks and months, we’ll start showing more on different platforms. What I can say, and I cannot go so much in details about specs or things like that, is that both on the previous generation and the new Xbox Series and PlayStation 5 generation, the game is running fine.

One detail I can add about the new generation is that it allowed us to run the game at 60 FPS and in 4K, which is cool. I test it on kits at the company and I can see that as a great thing for the new generation, but that doesn’t mean that the previous generation is abandoned in any way. We’re cautious about that, so we’ll show more detail and more info very soon. But yeah, we’ll care about all the platforms, both old gen, new-gen and even PC, Stadia, Luna and all of that,” he said.

He also mentioned how they are differentiating Far Cry from Ubisoft‘s other IPs: „Part of the thing we do at the beginning is, of course, we look at other teams and other brands and what they are doing as well. For sure, it’s not intentional if things look the same and we want to make sure that that’s not the case as much as possible while still respecting what made this brand so great in the past. It’s a balancing act between this, what people want, and also our idea of what should be the next evolution for that specific brand that is Far Cry.”

Far Cry 6 will launch on October 7 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Epic Games Store, Uplay), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Amazon Luna, and Google Stadia.
