The Far Cry 6 release date is set for October 7, and now we know exactly when we’ll get to dive in on the big day, with Ubisoft having confirmed the Far Cry 6 release time for reach region around the world.

Ubisoft has announced the Far Cry 6 release times in a blog post on the studio’s site with a handy graphic showing us when it goes live to play in each region, which we’ve included for you below. The open-world FPS game takes players to a fictional Caribbean island ruled by dictator ‘El Presidente’ Antón Castillo (portrayed by Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito) and puts you in the shoes of rebel fighter Dani Rojas to try and topple both the tyrannical regime and its leader.

Far Cry 6 will be available via the developer-publisher’s own platform Ubisoft Connect and the Epic Games Store at launch for PC players (though not Steam), as well as both last and current gen consoles, Stadia, and Luna. The graphic below includes details of the release times across these various platforms.
