Far Cry 6’s game director Alexandre Letendre in a Reddit AMA was asked if the map editor would return in the game and he revealed the feature won’t be present.
"No, Arcade will not come back," said Letendre. "Removing this mode from our plan was a difficult decision, but allowed us to focus our efforts on the main campaign, transporting players into the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution."
Starting with Far Cry 2 every mainline game has had a map editor. However, the developers focusing more on the main campaign should mean the campaign will be better than if the development team spent some of its time creating the map editor.
Ubisoft announced last week Far Cry 6 will launch for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 7, 2021.
