Big Slip: Far Cry 3’s Release Date A Far Cry From Reality

Not that it will be a surprise to Rock, Paper, Shotgun readers, all familiar with my legacy, the Walker Principal*, but the release date for Far Cry 3 has just slipped by almost three months.

So it is that BioShock: Infinite has declared it won't be with us this year at all. They're now looking at February…
