Ubisoft thanked Far Cry Exec for many contributions over the years, after confirming in its statement that Hay had not yet announced where he would work next. The studio then concluded by revealing that the brand team will be tentatively led by Ubisoft Montreal producer Sandra Warren and will work with a highly capable team of producers and directors.
According to VentureBeat, Hay was working on the studio’s next Far Cry game.

Earlier this year, a report emerged suggesting that Ubisoft is working on a project codenamed Assassin’s Creed Infinity. The project will be shaped as an online platform with multiple historical settings that evolve over time.
Following the report, Ubisoft officially announced that it is working on Assassin’s Creed Infinity. The game is developed by a “cross-studio collaboration structure” consisting of the Ubisoft Quebec and Montreal development teams. Little is known about the project at the moment when it comes to gameplay, but the company’s statement in July provided insight into what fans could expect.
“Rather than keep passing the baton from game to game, this is one of Ubisoft’s most beloved franchises evolving in a more focused, more integrated way of collaboration, rather than studio-centric. I deeply believe in the opportunity. Wherever you are in Ubisoft, about talent and leadership. “
