Ubisoft has dropped a hint that a new Far Cry game could be in its plans.
"We're totally psyched from [Far Cry 3]," said senior vice president of marketing and sales Tony Key, in an interview with GameSpot. "It's a great brand, and now it's got the recognition it deserves, so we're clearly going to make another one. More on that soon."
Far Cry 3 launched in November last year. Set on a tropical island, it followed a young tourist seeking to free his captured friends from a demented modern-day pirate. Polygon's review of the game praised its expertly crafted open-world, systems and mechanics.
"I think open world can represent the future of gaming, and that's where we're investing huge portions of our resources, because we believe that that is what consumers want," said Key.
In April, Ubisoft released Far Cry: Blood Dragon, a standalone '80s retro-themed game built on the Far Cry brand.
