A snippet of news, this time not coming out of Gamescom is that Far Cry 3, the successor to Far Cry 2 is in development. The project is in its infancy but word has it that the game is likely to remain in pseudo-Africa.
In an interview with a Offical Playstation Magazine, one of the Ubisoft scriptwriters said that the game is looking â€œpretty exciting.â€
It’s likely that the game will run off a modernised/modified version of the Dunia Engine which was specifically designed to handle the vast real-world physics within the sandbox envoronment.
This is pretty exciting news, if Ubistoft Montreal can learn and build off the shortcomings of Far Cry 2 then Far Cry 3 could land up being what Far Cry 2 was meant to be.
No official word but I’m sure it is safe to assume that Far Cry 3 will come to the PC, PS3 and 360.
