Far Cry 6 finally received its new release date of October 7 alongside a worldwide gameplay reveal yesterday, and following the event, lead gameplay designer David Grivel told VGC that the team felt it was very important for the game to launch on Xbox One, in addition to next-gen consoles such as Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
Asked about the last-gen version, Grivel noted that all versions of the game are "running fine" right now, and while the Series X version will run at 4K, 60fps, that doesn’t mean that the previous generation has been "abandoned."
"I test it on kits at the company and I can definitely see that as a great thing on the new generation, but that doesn’t mean that the previous generation is abandoned in any way.
We’re really, really cautious about that, so we’ll show more detail and more info very soon. But yeah, we’ll care about all the platforms, both old gen, new gen and even PC, Stadia, Luna and all of that."
Grivel also mentioned during the interview that the team aims to target "maximum quality" on each respective platform, and while details on specs are not being shared for now, footage will be shown over the coming months.
Far Cry 6 is available right now for pre-order on the Microsoft Store if you're interested, with Standard, Deluxe and Ultimate editions available, along with a special Collector's Edition over at the Ubisoft website.
