Far Cry 3 Development "In Full Swing?"
Far Cry 2 was a great game, although some fans of the original didn't like the new focus on open-ended exploration. We have no idea how developers will approach the third, but perhaps we'll learn more about it soon.
Although there has been no official announcement, most gamers have simply assumed that Far Cry 3 would eventually become a reality, and rumors of its existence were around not long after the sequel arrived on store shelves. Now, a new rumor from PC Gamer - evidently found in their Spy section - says the third installment is currently "in full swing" at Ubisoft Montreal. The only other detail it provides is that Josh Mosqueira is lead developer for the project; he worked with Relic Entertainment as a lead designer for Company of Heroes. As for anything else, we'll just have to wait. Will they stick with the African sandbox theme? Or will it be something entirely new? The FPS category just gets more and more competitive with every passing year so by the time Far Cry 3 is here, it will likely be compared against Killzone 3 and Duke Nukem Forever. ...okay, we're trying to be a little funny. But we'll have to eat our words when DNF blows everyone away after it releases in 2011! Um...no, 2047. Whatever.
We'll let you know when they decide to lift the veil on this project. If they do, we'll definitely want some early media.
