A listing for Far Cry 6 appeared on the Hong Kong PlayStation Store earlier today, confirming the unannounced title for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as well as the appearance of Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito, who recently teased his appearance in a “huge” video game in an interview with Collider. The listing has since been removed.
Here is the description, via the PlayStation Store:
