Is Far Cry 6 coming to Nintendo Switch?
There are no plans to release Far Cry 6 on Nintendo Switch. The one and only Far Cry game to appear for a Nintendo Console was Far Cry Instincts back in 2006. Given the limitation of the Switch hardware, if Far Cry 6 were to be announced, it would likely be a Cloud Edition, similar to the version of Dying Light due for release next year.
