Highlights
Cillian Murphy might be starring in the next Far Cry game according to reliable leaker 'j0nathan' who posted some cryptic tweets.
The game is targeting a Fall 2025 release but fans should temper expectations until an official announcement is made.

Speculation is swirling around the next installment of the Far Cry series, with a recent leak suggesting that Cillian Murphy will take on the role of the main antagonist in Far Cry 7. The leak, originating from a cryptic Twitter post by user j0nathan, has sparked a flurry of theories among fans who have attempted to decipher the meaning behind a series of images uploaded by the leaker.

Cillian Murphy Might Be The Big Bad in Far Cry 7

Celebrity involvement in the Far Cry franchise is nothing new, with notable actors like Giancarlo Esposito in Far Cry 6 and Michael Mando as Vaas in Far Cry 3. Cillian Murphy, known for his roles in Oppenheimer and Peaky Blinders, would certainly bring star power to the villainous role. Additionally, Murphy's previous portrayal of Scarecrow in a Batman movie adds an intriguing layer to the speculation.

The leak gains further credibility due to j0nathan's track record of accurately revealing information about Ubisoft projects in the past. Last year, our publication exclusively revealed story details for Far Cry 7, including a gameplay element involving a race against time to rescue one's family from a cult-like organization. Interestingly, a reference to this detail was found in one of the images shared by j0nathan, further fueling speculation among fans.

While some may view the connections drawn from j0nathan's post as speculative, the leaker's history of accurate information lends weight to the possibility of Cillian Murphy's involvement in Far Cry 7 as the primary antagonist.

What Else Do We Know About Far Cry 7?

According leaks that are doing rounds on the internet, we might be headed to a fictional tropical island named Kimsan in the Yellow Sea, near Korea, as the setting. The title might be "Far Cry: Rise."

The story might revolve around rescuing kidnapped family members from a group called the Sons of Truth within a 72-hour in-game time limit. The game is targeting a Fall 2025 release date but until we have official information from Ubisoft, fans should take information with a grain of salt.
