Ubisoft is “Psyched” to Reveal Far Cry 4
Following the success of Far Cry 3 and its spinoff title, Blood Dragon, it comes as little surprise that Ubisoft would want to develop yet another full-fledged Far Cry game—or Far Cry 4, to be precise. Though the studio has yet to make any official announcement about the next game in the series, Ubisoft MArketing & Sales VP Tony Key says that the publisher is “psyched” to reveal information about the game in the near future.
Speaking to GameSpot, Key said that the company is keen on making another Far Cry game and that the success of Far Cry 3 has ensured the continuation of the series. Far Cry 3 sold six million units, far beyond Ubisoft’s sales expectations.
“We’re totally psyched from [Far Cry 3],” said Key. “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,” he said.
Key also explained that the next game will be just as open in its environment as its predecessor as it’s what gamers want.
“I think open world can represent the future of, you know, gaming, and that’s where we’re investing huge portions of our resources – because we believe that that is what consumers want,” he said.
“They don’t want linear; they want open [world],” he said. He however concluded that “there’s always going to be a place for linear experiences.”
