UK-based blogchums Videogaming247 were clever enough to remember to go to Leipzig (unlike us) and consequently they've come back with special Far Cry information. Ubisoft Montreal are, apparently, already in the initial stages of the third Far Cry game. Here's the interesting bit:
“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. That said, we might find something new and compelling about the Antarctic setting that wants us to make the next game there, but honestly, we’re still at the preliminary stages.”
If Far Cry 2 ends up being good I rather hope this third game has a brief iteration time, rather than being another four-year project.
