Far Cry 3 has been delayed by three months to December 4th in the United States, Ubisoft announced today.

The first-person shooter had previously been scheduled for release on September 4th, but will now launch on November 29th in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and stateside on December 4th. The dates are the same for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of Far Cry 3.

"We're taking more time to create the best possible gameplay experience," said producer Dan Hay.

Far Cry 3 now joins the long list of delayed 2012 releases, although many of them — including Anarchy Reigns, BioShock Infinite, and South Park: The Stick of Truth — were pushed all the way into 2013.
