Thinking of Far Cry is inevitably thinking of fun. The Ubisoft saga has been one of the most notable guarantors of light-hearted and addictive entertainment in the AAA industry for years, and one of the main exponents of that claim has been its Arcade. This variant, from the hand of the mythical map editor, has offered immeasurable hours of play to millions of players since the second volume of the franchise, however, facing Far Cry 6, the company has decided not to have their services.
In this regard, in a question and answer session held on Reddit, Alexandre Letendre, production director, clarified why the most playful side of the video game will not be present. ” No, Arcade will not return. Removing this mode from our plan was a difficult decision, but it allowed us to focus our efforts on the main campaign, on transporting players to the heart of the modern guerrilla revolution,” argued the creative, referring to the affirmatively political character of the work.
In this way, the tradition started by Far Cry 2 and followed by all major installments of intellectual property up to Far Cry 5 has come to an end, at least for now. Perhaps after Far Cry 6 is available on October 7, Arcade mode will arrive as post-launch content, but we have to wait for Ubisoft to choose to integrate it once the base game is fully completed.
