Currently, invitations to a supposed early access phase of the upcoming shooter Far Cry 6 are making the rounds. As Ubisoft made clear, we are dealing with a simple fake that is apparently being used to hunt down the data of careless users.
The upcoming highlights from Ubisoft will include the first-person shooter Far Cry 6, which is currently being developed for consoles and PCs.
According to current reports, emails are currently making the rounds with invitations to a supposed early access phase, which are mainly sent to YouTubers and other content creators. Even if it should actually be obvious that we are dealing with simple fakes, Ubisoft made the whole thing clear again in a statement.
“Some of our media and content creators are being sent fake emails using the Ubisoft domain inviting you to take part in early access for Far Cry 6. Please ignore such emails. Our security teams are investigating,” commented Ubisoft on the current development around Far Cry 6 and the alleged early access test.
Far Cry 6 is in development for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 and is expected to appear in the first half of the 2021/2022 financial year. The release is therefore scheduled for the period between April 1, 2021, and September 30, 2021.
To the distress of the fans, however, it was recently quite quiet about Far Cry 6. It, therefore, remains to be seen when further details or fresh gameplay footage will be revealed soon.
