Far Cry 5’s next-gen update will include a “highly requested feature”

Ubisoft has been rather good in ensuring many of its previously published titles get updated with some level of support for the new generation of consoles. We have already seen a whole host of games get their free upgrades including multiple Assassin’s Creed titles, Rainbow Six and more. Unfortunately, the only Far Cry game with PS5 and Series X|S support is 2021’s Far Cry 6 – though this is soon set to change.

Making the announcement on Twitter, the official Far Cry account teased that fans can expect 2018’s Far Cry 5 to get an update as part of the game’s impending 5th anniversary, saying:

“Let's celebrate the 5th anniversary of #FarCry5! Over the next three weeks, celebrate the 5th Anniversary with us. Stay tuned for what's to come, including a highly requested feature for next-gen consoles.”

With the announcement that Far Cry 5 will get a next-gen patch, many are hoping that the “highly requested” feature is a 60fps option. While this would certainly be beneficial, and would do a great deal to modernise the game for current consoles, adding a 60fps option is basically a given. In drawing attention to this upcoming patch, hopefully the update comes with more than just a framerate boost, and in fact is a full current-gen release with its own SKU. We don't have long to wait in order to find out.
