FAR CRY 6 Is Developed at SPLINTER CELL: BLACKLIST Studio and Scored by NARCOS Composer

Following the recent announcement of Far Cry 6, Ubisoft has shared new details on the cross-gen entry in the open-world series and confirmed that Ubisoft Toronto is leading development on the upcoming title.

Obviously, it doesn't mean that the brand-new project is being created only by the team at Ubisoft Toronto — the renowned makers of 2013's Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, 2018's Starlink: Battle for Atlas, and the fast-approaching Watch Dogs: Legion — as Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft Kyiv, Ubisoft Shanghai, Ubisoft Berlin, and finally Ubisoft Montpellier are all working on the newly announced sequel to 2018's Far Cry 5.

Furthermore, Pedro Bromfman (RoboCop) recently revealed that he's scoring the title (including its opening cinematic). Considering that the FPS is reportedly influenced by Netflix's Narcos, it shouldn't be surprising that Ubisoft has hired its composer to help the team bring their vision of the tropical island of Yara to life.

Speaking of which, Narrative Director Navid Khavari (Tom Clancy's The Division, Far Cry 5) spilled the beans on Far Cry 6's unique setting in a new interview with Ubisoft's Chris Watters. According to the artist, Ubisoft has been planning to go back to a more sunny (and exciting) Far Cry 3–like setting for quite a while now. 

"When you’re talking about guerrilla warfare, you go to Cuba," Khavari said. "We were very, very lucky to be able to fly down to Cuba. I spent about a month down there with the team, circumnavigating the island. We got to meet so many amazing people and [...] actual former guerrillas. And that really was the jumping-off point, because for our island of Yara, not only did we want to tell a story of a modern guerrilla revolution, but also we want to tell a story about an island that is almost frozen in time, like a living postcard from the ‘60s that players can experience and walk through."

With Far Cry 6 launching in February, we should learn a lot more about Ubisoft Toronto's title in the near future, and definitely during a second Ubisoft Forward digital conference that is planned for later in 2020.

Welcome to Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. As dictator of Yara, Anton Castillo is intent on restoring his nation back to its former glory by any means, with his son, Diego, dutifully at his side. Immerse in the adrenaline-filled, chaotic world of a modern-day guerrilla revolution and burn their regime to the ground.

Far Cry 6 is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Google Stadia, and PC (via Uplay and the EGS) on February 18, 2021.
