Far Cry Primal is an ice age spin-off - report

The spiritual successor to Blood Dragon?

For the last few hours Ubisoft has been teasing a new project with a livestream of a cave painting, and it's now believed that it's for a spin-off entitled Far Cry Primal.

According to sources at Kotaku, Far Cry Primal will be set during the ice age. An accidentally posted (and quickly removed) tweet from IGN Turkey (via AllGamesBeta) corroborated this report.

In Ubisoft's most recent tweet we can see a 15-second video of the cave painting emphasising combat with mammoths and bears using bows and spears. The IGN Turkey image suggests that there's a couple of factions at war and clubs will be a new weapon too.

A previous tweet teased the tagline: "survival is timeless."

It's unclear if Far Cry Primal will be a full-priced adventure, DLC for Far Cry 4, or rather a smaller standalone spin-off, as 2013's Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was before it.

We've asked Ubisoft for confirmation about Far Cry Primal and will update should we hear back.
