Finally, some definite news on the release of the much anticipated Far Cry 2 has hit the internet, and although, I would have preferred a Spring release, I suppose I can grin & bear it and keep on going until the Autumn months rolls around.
Despite murmurings of a delay, the publisher assured Eurogamer this is the first time a date for the title has been mentioned since it was pushed into fiscal 2008 at the beginning of the year.
Aside from a date on when this game will hit the shelves, there is a little more good news circulating, and it is that Ubisoft has stated that a Demo of the game will also be made available, let's hope it's sooner then later!
Ubisoft has apparently stated that the upcoming sequel to Far Cry is set to hit Xbox 360, PS3, and PC at the same time sometime this fall. This the first indication of a release timeframe since the game was pushed into fiscal year 2008. Not much is known about the game still, except that it will be set in Africa and involve some incredible weather effects. However, Ubisoft has indicated that a demo for the game should be released at some point.
And to top it all off, this from Ubi:
Over the past few weeks, weâ€™ve seen numerous sites online, including Ubisoftâ€™s own, report that Far Cry 2 is now scheduled for a Fall 2008 release.
Today, our Producer LP confirms this directly from the development team, and he shows off some new gameplay footage. The game will ship simultaneously on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 and will be polished on all platforms so the quality and features of each will be top-notch.
And catch the Producer: LP Pharand of
Far Cry 2 in the latest official video playing the game...
Far Cry 2 in a nutshell:
"This is clearly a very different game from Far Cry, which is perhaps unsurprising given that Crytek has moved on to new pastures; Far Cry 2 is set in Africa, and so involves plenty of plains and grassland as opposed to dense foliage and ostentatiously gorgeous tropical backdrops. Even at this earliest of stages, though, Far Cry 2 looks impressive."Sources:Gaming TodayEurogamerUbi: Developer Blog
