Far Cry 6 won’t feature Arcade mode, map editor

Ubisoft Toronto is focussed on the game's main campaign.

Far Cry 6 will not feature franchise mainstays Arcade mode or a map editor, developer Ubisoft Toronto has confirmed.

The revelations were part of a Reddit question and answer session held earlier in the week.

“No, Arcade will not come back,” Game Director Alexandre Letendre confirmed. “Removing this mode from our plan was a difficult decision, but allowed us to focus our efforts on the main campaign, transporting players into the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution.”

Earlier in the week, Narrative Director Navid Khavari asserted that Far Cry 6 is certainly political but not about Cuba specifically.

Far Cry 6 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and Stadia from 7 October. We previewed it here and spoke to World Director, Ben Hall as well.
