Ubisoft at The Game Awards 2018 announced Far Cry New Dawn for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. The standalone sequel to Far Cry 5 will launch on February 15, 2019 for $39.99.

View the gameplay premiere trailer below:

Here is an overview of the game:

Seventeen years after a global nuclear catastrophe, civilization re-emerges from the chaos to find a world dramatically changed. In a post-apocalyptic Hope County, Montana, the remaining populace has gathered into different groups, each with their own rules for survival.

In this new world order, the vicious Highwaymen, led by twin sisters Mickey and Lou, travel from place to place bleeding people dry of all available resources. As the Survivors try to defend their lands against the Highwaymen’s relentless onslaught, it’s up to you to come to their aid and lead the fight.

In the latest installment of the award-winning Far Cry franchise, you are the last line of defense in a transformed, post-apocalyptic Hope County. Help the community of Survivors grow stronger, craft a makeshift arsenal through Turf Wars and cross-country Expeditions, and form unexpected alliances to fight for survival in a dangerous new frontier.

So looks like a sequel in setting only, although its not clear how big a role Joseph Seed has in the game from that trailer.

Yeah, this might be the first Far Cry I skip since I started playing the series with 3. Rage 2 looks so much better.
