Was the Official Name of Far Cry 6, Box Art Revealed in Twitter Leak?

The title and box art for Far Cry 6 may have leaked ahead of tonight's The Game Awards.

As we quickly approach tonight’s The Game Awards and the highly anticipated reveal of the new Far Cry game/spin-off/something, it appears that the game’s box art and title have potentially been leaked on Twitter.

Shared by Wario 64 and reported by IGN, the alleged leak purports that the next installment of the Far Cry series will be called Far Cry: New Dawn

As of this writing, the veracity of the alleged Xbox One X box art has not been confirmed, either by Ubisoft or anyone else for that matter. However, we only have a few more hours before we know if the leak is true or not. 

Yesterday, we reported on the surprising teaser trailer that seemingly tied the game to the events of Far Cry 5. Although those threads are tenuous in regards to story, it is believed that the game will take place in some type of post-apocalyptic setting perhaps brought on by the nuclear fallout caused by Eden’s Gate at the end of FC5

Whether Far Cry 6 ends up being set after the events of the previous game or not, or if it’s actually called New Dawn or something entirely different, we do know that it is currently in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. 

You can tune into The Game Awards tonight starting at 8:30 p.m. EDT to find out. The awards show will be broadcast on Twitch, YouTube, Xbox Live, and PlayStation Network, as well as a handful of other services such as Mixer and Caffeine.
