The upcoming title, per the leak via Reddit and Twitter user Wario64, is Far Cry: New Dawn.

For many, the adorable little fang for hire Boomer was the indisputable highlight of Far Cry 5 - and it seems like Ubisoft has heard fans' yelps of glee loud and clear.

Given that we only got Far Cry 5 this February, the news of a standalone sequel comes as somewhat of a surprise. In your fight against Mickey and Lou - sister antagonists leading the evil Highwaymen - you have a home base and missions that take place outside Hope County, too.

Far Cry Is Heading To The Post-Apocalypse

Far Cry 5: New Dawn is due to launch on February 15th, 2019. V and his demons can be seen in action in the extended trailer below. Among them is another dog, Timber, who could be seen in the reveal trailer for New Dawn.

A cryptic teaser released ahead of the ceremony hinted at a direct follow-up to the Far Cry 5 story, which is a drastic departure for the series as all previous games were standalones. The box art depicts two young women holding weapons and tormenting a shirtless man tied to a wrecked auto. Who is Nana? She's a sharp-shooting sniper granny, and she's got your back. We know this for a fact: we witnessed her sneak up on a Highwayman and deck him from behind. "We try to take different angles with each and every Far Cry", Decant said. Which is where New Dawn holds its appeal. This time around, he'll be able to ride with you on vehicles. Cult leader Joseph Seed had a rather devastating plan. And the world is in a place actually where he wanted it to be, so he's a changed man. As you did with the resistance in Far Cry 5, you will need to acquire and battle for resources to increase the strength of your allies.
