Ubisoft has painstakingly been teasing an imminent announcement for the last 18 hours. It’s a livestream of a cave painting which is literally as interesting as watching paint dry. It’s steadily been zooming out to reveal more and more but all that means nought, because an IGN Turkey Twitter account which has since been suspended tweeted out the name and ruined all the suspense.

As it turns out it’s a new Far Cry. Hooray! It’s not Far Cry 5 though, no, but the much more intriguing Far Cry Primal. Details are understandably scarce ahead of an official reveal, but Far Cry Primal looks to be a prehistoric spin-off for the series, with bow and arrow hunting, sabre-toothed tigers and woolly mammoths roaming the lands.
