  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Hello there,

    Following the release of Title Update 3, we have had reports that players are still experiencing crashes / black screen when launching Far Cry 6, and that this issue has started for some following the release of this Title Update.

    If you haven't already, we would recommend that you follow all of the steps provided in this basic troubleshooting article, as these help to resolve a number of common causes behind technical issues experienced in-game. In particular, we'd recommend ensuring that you have verified your game files, as this will repair any corrupted or missing game files.

    If the crashes continue to persist after trying these steps, we welcome you to share your report with us. To help us to better gather reports for the development team and provide you with clearer updates, we have opened up two new dedicated Megathreads. You can find these below:


    We will now be locking and archiving this thread. If you are still experiencing a crash or black screen on launch following Title Update 3, please share your report in the appropriate Megathread so we can investigate this further.

    Thank you 😊

    @nerdherder Yup, after latest update (dlc update) game is not even launching now. I did already verify files, still game won't open.

    Same here. After November update the game won't start. Nothing surprises me at the moment with these "updates". Last time it broke the game and after a file check, I had to download a new pack almost 20 GB. This time the file check didn't change anything, so I tried to uninstall the game and start downloading it again. Only about 90 GB to download now.

    @meplayinggta Good luck, I did not try to uninstall and install again, no time for that right now. So I am verifying files again and it seems this time is taking longer, so let's see.
    EDIT: Nope, nothing. Still doesn't launch.

    The game worked flawlessly until the update right before the release of the DLC with Vaas.
    After the update, I have a splash screen and instant crash to the desktop (for a second you can see a window from Ubisoft Connect, similar to the game startup).
    Restarting the PC did not help, the drivers are up-to-date (let me remind you - the game worked without any problems).
    The verification of the game files did not help - all OK, nothing downloaded.
    Tried to clear UC cache - did not help.
    This is the second time the game crashes after update.
    I wanted to play the DLC and can't play the game at all...

    Same here. I see it's now version 6.1.2.1. Crashes after clicking continue game, also crashes after trying to create a new game.

    I'm on a PC, Win 10 Pro, 32GB, SSD, plenty of Hard drive space, Votac 1080TI graphics card.

    Rock solid performance before the update from 6.1.2.0 to 6.1.2.1. Finished the game and was now doing the insurgency.

    Tried running it 4 times; crashed each time.

    @rickidoo2010 It seems that your problem is a bit different - in my case, the game does not go further than to the splash screen, and you are talking about loading save from the main menu.

    I also have this problem, after installing that ~8G update from today, the game won't launch, it shows the splash screen for some seconds, then silently exits. Previously it was working OK, and I have about 10 in-game hours. I have the "basic" FC6 with no DLCs, nvidia drivers are up to date. 😞
