Ubisoft is possibly teasing an announcement related to its critically acclaimed award-winning open-world action-adventure franchise, Far Cry.
Earlier today, the company’s official Facebook page posted an image of the tropical Asian-Pacific archipelago from Far Cry 3. An accompanying caption reads “an island we never left.” In the comments section, Ubisoft further teased by sharing an image of the game’s secondary antagonist, Vaas Montenegro.
In theory, we are either getting a remastered version of Far Cry 3 or a direct sequel. With E3 2017 just around the corner, it is possible that Ubisoft will confirm the game in the weeks to come, and then take the stage in June to drop in the official trailer.
Far Cry 3 released in November 2012 to critical success. It was hailed for its action sequences, but it was the characterization that blew everyone away. Vaas, for one, is up there in the lists of best villains ever created in a video game. Perhaps Ubisoft intends to build on that very aspect, but it is doubtful as to how the sequel would progress. The ending sequences pretty much answered our questions.
That being said, it might be too soon for the series to receive another installment. Last year, Ubisoft released Far Cry Primal. It brought together the massive open-world of the franchise, breathtaking environments, all manner of beasts, and more. While fans still preferred the third installment over it, Primal was also a good addition to the series.
Considering that it has only been a year, it is possible that we are looking at a remastered version. Perhaps we might even get to hear about the game releasing for both Project Scorpio and PlayStation 4 Pro later this year.
