Far Cry fans hope surprise source code leak will breathe ‘new life’ into an old game

It’s hard to overstate how good the original Far Cry was. And influential too: it’s the game that put developer Crytek on the map and spawned one of Ubisoft’s biggest and best-known series. But he’s also 19, a veritable aeon in video game terms, and that passage of time can certainly be seen and felt: it’s high time to shine.

Unexpectedly, he might get one at some point in the too-distant future thanks to a recent leak of the original Far Cry source code, which appeared “out of nowhere” on the Internet Archive.

The leak is for version 1.34 of the game and claims to be complete, although a reviewer said it was not actually complete, “but close”.
