It’s still very, very early in development, so there’s no actual news other than this confirmation, but Ubisoft Montreal scriptwriter Kevin Shortt recently told Official PlayStation Magazine UK that while he himself is not working on FarCry 3, the FarCry 2 team is.
When asked about it, he gave a very short response:
“No I’m not. But I know the team are and what I’ve seen looks pretty exciting.”
The big question of the moment seems to be whether or not they’re going to stick with Africa as their setting. The world they created was very well received and a year ago narrative designer Patrick Redding said that they would likely keep the same setting, but a new Antartic setting was also thrown out. We’ll bring you updated news when it’s released.
Personally, I’d be completely content either way. I thought the African setting in FarCry 2 was amazing, and Varus seemed to like it too, which you can read more about in his review. Some complained about the long travel times in between missions, but I eat that stuff up, as I think it’s what makes the world feel so epic. At the same time, an Antartic setting could be really neat, especially with the same team of developers. I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts.
