Video Game News: Did this leaked cover art just give the title for the next Far Cry game?

Far Cry 5

So, yesterday we shared with you Ubisoft's teaser for their big Far Cry related reveal scheduled during tonight's Game Awards. It certainly looked to be a follow-up to this year's Far Cry 5, which would be a first for the series, but we certainly won't know for sure until tonight.

Or will we?!

Well no, we won't. But possible leaked cover art for the game, if accurate, would validate those suspicions. Be warned, there be Far Cry 5 spoilers from here on in.

Ready?

So, in Far Cry 5, where you battle bloodthirsty members of a doomsday cult in rural America (as well as the flora and fauna in said area), the game ends with a nuclear device detonating. That certainly jibes with that teaser, and this leaked cover - first posted on Reddit and then Twitter (as most things of this nature are) - does even moreso.

The "New Dawn" subtitle perfectly matches the vibe of the video, and if you notice the crossbow the young lady on the right is wielding, it's the same sawblade ejecting projectile weapon also featured in the video. While it's not distinctly clear who the poor soul strapped to the car in the background is, he certainly has a strong resemblance to Far Cry 5 protagonist, leader of aforementioned doomsday cult Joseph Seed.

I would not want to be Joey Seed right now.

Of course, none of this has been verified by Ubisoft - and why would they? But, if the dots are connecting like they seem to be, this should be the new Far Cry game we see announced at the Game Awards - one of at least ten new game announcements promised during what has turned into the awards show for the gaming industry.

Speaking of which, we'll have the results of said awards afterwards here on Sportskeeda.
