Far Cry 2 isn't even out yet, but Ubisoft has wasted no time starting work on a sequel. Ubisoft's Patrick Redding told videogaming247 the Ubisoft Montreal studio is at the "preliminary stages" of development on the "next game" in the Far Cry series.
Like Far Cry 2 but unlike Crytek's original, the third game in the series will take place in Africa. Redding explained, "For us Africa still has a huge amount of promise . . . There are still things we want to do with the African setting, and I think it’s safe to say we’ll continue to explore it." He added that, although the Far Cry 2 engine could handle gameplay set in a South-American forest, sticking with the Africa locale will "save time."
Now, Far Cry fans have two games to look forward to. Based on what we heard in March, Far Cry 2 is coming out some time this fall for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. The game has reasonably tame system requirements and will reportedly feature varied, open-ended gameplay. (Thanks to Shacknews for the tip.)
