Far Cry 6 was confirmed to launch after April 2021 but didn’t have an official release date. It might have been leaked thanks to the Microsoft Store.
The official Microsoft Store has been updated with a release date for Far Cry 6. According to the list on the store, the game will unlock on May 25 at 5:00 PM PST. This is likely the release date that was accidentally posted ahead of an official announcement. Microsoft Store is notorious for these leaks in the past as well.
Far Cry 6 is set in Yara “a tropical paradise frozen in time.” The main theme of this sequel is a modern-day guerrilla revolution with Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito reprising the role of the main bad guy.
According to the Microsoft Store listing, the game has a file size of 50 GB for Xbox One. It will support 4K, 60 FPS, and HDR on the Xbox Series X, although we are not sure if the higher frame rate applies to the Series S as well.
Here is a description of the game taken from the Microsoft Store.
