Rumor: Far Cry 5 to be a Spaghetti Western



With E3 right around the corner, the rumor mill is spinning at record pace with talk of AAA titles whispered by the wind, or sources.

Among the latest of these rumors soars talk of Far Cry 5, the latest in a series that debuted in 2004. Speculation holds that Far Cry 5 will take place in the nitty gritty American west, specifically the northwest in Montana. A picture was leaked depicting a few Westerners in picturesque cowboy hats and garb most stereotypically associated with cowboys in the West. The photo can be seen below.

Jeff Guillot, a producer for 2016’s Far Cry Primal, said the photo is related to the sequel to one of Ubisoft’s existing global franchises. Guillot produced a live action trailer for Far Cry Primal. Rumors claim Guillot will also be producing a live action trailer for Far Cry 5 using a drone to record “a man fighting with another man near a hanging bell as a train rolled by on the tracks a half-mile away.”

Naturally, a Spaghetti Western themed title produced by Ubisoft would be hard-pressed to compete with Rockstar’s upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2. However, Jason Schreier, a known insider for Kotaku, has all but confirmed that the leak is not Red Dead Redemption 2, but Far Cry 5.

Adding to the rumors’ steam is the result of 2015’s poll, taken by Ubisoft, in which one of the options was the possibility of a Spaghetti Western themed Far Cry set in late Nineteenth Century America.

Ubisoft has yet to confirm or deny any of the rumors, but fans and sources speculate the company will announce a couple titles at E3 2017. Along with Far Cry 5, the return of Assassin’s Creed is said to be on Ubisoft’s agenda, which is also rumored to be revealed at E3.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players



Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
