It's been quite a while since we've gotten a new mainline Far Cry installment considering that the last one, Far Cry 4, came out in 2014. Given this, a new one was a pretty safe bet for reveal at Ubisoft's E3 press conference this year, but what we didn't expect is for Ubisoft to announce the game's existence and full reveal this Friday, May 26.
That's right, Ubisoft has announced Far Cry 5 and is planning a full reveal this Friday, ahead of E3. The move was announced via an announcement of an announcement trailer which revealed the game would be set in Hope County, Montana -- the first time the game has been set in the United States, in fact.
Aside from that small reveal, we'll have to wait until Friday for more information. One has to wonder why Ubisoft would reveal one of its biggest games of the year ahead of E3, however. Is it possible they have one or more titles that could match Far Cry 5 in terms of hype at E3? It's looking pretty likely at this point, so stay tuned as the expo approaches in three weeks
