Ubisoft Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales Tony Key has
that Far Cry 3's success has already greenlit a sequel (though this one will probably have fewer laser dragons in it).
"We're totally psyched from [Far Cry 3],” Key said. “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."
Key went on to talk about how Ubisoft's investing most of its time and resources into open world games, though you don't need to be a financial analyst to figure that one out. Both of Ubisoft's big new IPs,
are open world. Add Far Cry and Assassin's Creed into the mix and it's enough to make you wonder when Splinter Cell or
Prince of Persia
will hit the open world.
Of course, Key didn't actually say when we'd actually hear more about Far Cry 4, so we'll just continue fighting our losing battle with the unstoppable beast known as the
until that day arrives.
