Far Cry Executive Director leaves Ubisoft and reports live service project

Ubisoft has announced that its Far Cry Executive Director Dan Hay will be leaving the studio this week. Hay reportedly worked on a live service Far Cry game prior to leaving.

Ubisoft has announced that Hay will end his tenure at the studio this week – after working there for over a decade. As GamesBeat announced, a statement by the company confirmed its departure. “After more than 10 years at Ubisoft, Dan Hay has announced that he will open a new chapter in his professional life and will leave the company on November 12th,” said the opening line of the statement.

Ubisoft confirmed in its statement that Hay had not yet announced where he would work next before thanking the Far Cry Exec for its many contributions over the years. The studio then closed with the revelation that the branding team will be led on an interim basis by Ubisoft Montreal producer Sandra Warren, who will work with a highly skilled team of producers and directors.

According to VentureBeat, Hay was working on the studio’s next Far Cry game, which is rumored to be taking shape as a live service game, similar to reports on the studio’s next Assassin’s Creed game. Reports surfaced earlier this year suggesting that Ubisoft was working on a project codenamed Assassin’s Creed Infinity that would take shape as an online platform with several historical settings that evolve over time.

According to the reports, Ubisoft officially announced that it was working on Assassin’s Creed Infinity. The game is developed from a “multi-studio, collaborative structure” made up of the development teams from Ubisoft Quebec and Montreal. While little is currently known about the project in terms of gameplay, a statement from the company in July gave a glimpse of what fans can expect.

“Rather than passing the baton down from game to game,” the statement said, “we deeply believe this is an opportunity for one of Ubisoft’s most popular franchises to evolve in a more integrated and collaborative way that is less studio-focused and is more focused on talent and leadership, no matter where you are at Ubisoft. “
