Ubisoft has officially announced that Far Cry 5 is on the way.

Literally nothing other than a logo and promises of more information soon was posted on the series’ official Facebook page, however the colours of the logo may suggest recent rumours by Giant Bomb of the game focusing on police in modern-day rural Montana are accurate.

That’s a bit of a far cry (zing!) from the cavemen we played as in last year’s excellent Primal, and it’s pretty dang distant from the global locations of the rest of the series, but Montana is a large, environmentally diverse area that could lend itself well to an open world (see the header image of Montana’s Glacier National Park, now imagine skinning a crocodile in it). Consider me interested.

We’ll probably hear more about Far Cry 5 at E3 next month.

Joe is LPVG’s resident hardware nerd. If it’s overpriced and has gaudy RGB lighting, he’s probably drooling over it. He loves platformers, MMOs, RPGs, hack ‘n slashers and FPS, with his favourite games being Mirror’s Edge, Left 4 Dead, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Oblivion and Dead Space. Don’t ask him about his unhealthily large Monsters Inc memorabilia collection. Seriously, just don’t ask…
