UPDATE: According to Kotaku, the game will be Farcry Primal.
Fortunately, you’ve got Kotaku. The announcement will be for a game called Far Cry Primal and it’ll be set in the Ice Age, according to sources familiar with goings-on at Ubisoft. Expect to see woolly mammoths, tigers, and other prehistorical animals. Maybe tribal combat using bows and spears. Probably no dinosaurs, but who knows?
I first heard that Ubisoft was making a prehistoric Far Cry game earlier this year, but details were sparse until today, when I heard specifics on the name and theme. An inadvertent leak from IGN Turkey corroborated that it’s called Far Cry Primal. As of this post’s publication, the livestream is still a cave painting.
In a special YouTube live stream, Ubisoft is teasing its newest game. The stream began with what appears to be a petroglyph of a spear- and bow-wielding man that has evolved over the last two hours to find him surrounded by other figures with bows. How long the stream will last or what game is being announced will remain to be seen.
The video's announcement came via the Ubisoft Twitter account:
Some are speculating that it will be a survival title based on the Farcry series, though no real evidence has been offered as to why that is the current front-runner.
Check out the slowly evolving image in the video below. We'll update this post when all is fully known.
