A large number of gamers who were caught in the middle of a dispute between Ubisoft and an online retailer after numerous copies of Far Cry 4 were purchased from the outlet using fraudulent credit cards. As a result, the publisher revoked access to anyone who had purchased a copy of the game acquired by illegal means. Deciding not to punish those who inadvertently purchased the stolen merchandise from a third party retailer, unaware that it was effectively stolen merchandise, Game Informer reports that Ubisoft has reactivated any key that had actually been used to play Far Cry 4.
While Ubisoft still works to add new features to Far Cry 4, the developer is also already looking ahead to the next game in the popular franchise. As reported by the Inquisitr, the studio has conducted fan polls to see what gamers would like to see in a future Far Cry game.
Title Update 5 for Far Cry 4 will be available across all platforms on starting Wednesday. Will the prospect of creating your own custom co-op map bring you back to playing Far Cry 4?
