Far Cry: According to a report from Insider Gaming, Ubisoft is developing a standalone Far Cry multiplayer extraction shooter codenamed “Project Maverick.” The game is set in a fictional version of Alaska and features a gameplay loop centered around gathering resources, completing contracts, and extracting from the map before dying.
Players will have access to a variety of weapons, gadgets, and vehicles to help them survive the harsh Alaskan wilderness and complete their objectives. They will also be able to craft new gear and items using the resources they gather.
One of the key features of Project Maverick is its permadeath system. If a player dies, they will lose everything except the items they have stored in their Hideout. This adds a high-stakes element to the game and forces players to be strategic about how they approach each mission.
The Insider Gaming report also states that Project Maverick is scheduled for release in April 2025. This is earlier than the expected release date of Far Cry 7, which is rumored to be in development for a 2026 release.
