I experienced a lot of crashes to desktop, both in windows 10 and 11.
Today I turned off "Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling" and "Variable refresh rate", and played for about 6 hours without any crashes.
You will find these settings under System-Display-Graphics-Default graphics settings.
I should also mention that I verified the game files after I did this.
I hope this helps some of you that have had the same issues.

Still stuck at the splash screen with the spinning wheel in bottom right corner. Have not even been able to get past that.
This is my second post, but I've tried now everything suggested since my last one about halfway through these pages.

A bunch of people on these forums are having the crash on splash screen error, with the window popping up saying something like "the graphics device may not be compatible, please check and update drivers", updating graphics drivers did not fix this for me, and I had trouble updating windows until I found this;
This may not work for everyone with the issue but It has worked for me
Updated windows to May 2021 Update via the windows update program located on their website:
Hopefully, this fixes it for some of you, good luck
Windows 10, updated Nvidia drivers but was unable to update windows

the game will occasionally launch after clicking play for about 15 minutes. I have logged about 5 hours so far and the game itself runs smooth. however something is stopping the game from launching 99.9 percent of the time. is any fix for this upcoming?

I think that Customer Support has done us a disservice here. This specific issue is that the game crashes on start up, after the splash screen. This thread NOT is about crashes in-game - we can't even START the game.
Merging in threads from other issues, particularly intermittent crashes that have been resolved with a GPU or OS update that should have been installed in the first place, minimizes the problem that most of us are experiencing.

I too have same problem. i prepurchased this game over i full year ago and it will not allow me to play it on my oc which is a great dissapointment. It works on my lap top though it does seem to crash . The new weapon system really sucks. Graphics are great but the controls are terrible. why did they change the controls and weapon sustem is not understandable as it really sucks. Ruining the Far Cry game experience

I rolled back to NVidia 461.40, and went to partial selective startup; left Dropbox, mouse, MSI Afterburner, & BitDefender on. Was able to play 3x sessions totalling about 3 hours with only 2x crashes vs. the usual 3x per hour. The driver rollback had the biggest impact; selective-startup didn't really seem to have much impact except for the new Epic Network Services optional install; that was crashing stuff.

The game won´t launch
It crashes on splash screen #3
- #1 Ubisoft connect splash screen, sync with cloud etc
- #2 Splash screen from game
- #3 Splash screen from ubisoft connect, this shows about 10ms then exits without error message or notification
I have tried everything in about every troubleshooting guide
- Updating and reverting NVIDIA drivers, old versions and latest version
- Windows 10 is 100% up-to-date, with the May patch + windows update
- Starting as admin, ubisoft connect, running the .exe directly etc.
- Turn off cloud sync and launching offline
- Turn off off all overlays
- Clean boot
- Trying different display settings
- Reinstalling game & ubisoft connect, verifying files etc.
- And more..
I have a few hundred games and they are all working except FAR CRY 6, everything in all troubleshooting guides has been tried, clearly, the game needs to be patched
No need to post any tips on what more to try
Ubisoft, when will you release an update to fix this?

Guys just give up, ubisoft doesn't care at all about you.
They have tons of profits from selling the game, from people that the game works perfectly to people like you who bought it, why woudl they care if it doesn't work now? Don't you see they are making fun of us? If they really cared they would have released a statement and try to bring out a patch, but they have shown zero interest in doing any of that.
If you want to make a statement then don't buy their next game, maybe if at least 20% of people would do that, they would realize that their customers matter.

I bought the game yesterday. Have tried everything listed here and elsewhere.
Still have not seen more than a splash screen.
Reading this thread i dont have the impression much is being done to fix this.
I also dont see this on the Known issues list, or the Reported issue Megathread List.
I dont intend to wait for a patch that might fix this. My refund request has been accepted.
