Far Cry 3 confirmed (again), looking “pretty exciting”

Far Cry 3 is currently in development and it looks “pretty exciting,” according to Ubisoft scriptwriter Kevin Shortt.

At a recent Avatar (it’s not a game, it’s an experience) press event, Official PlayStation Magazine asked Shortt if he was working on the sequel to 2008’s open-world safari-’em-up Far Cry 2. They expected the usual “no comment” response, apparently, but that’s not quite what they got. “No I’m not,” said the writer, “But I know the team are and what I’ve seen looks pretty exciting.”

So there you go. We knew last year that Ubisoft were at work on Far Cry 3. Narrative designer Patrick Reading even revealed that it might take place in Antartica, which was interesting. But now we also know that it looks “pretty exciting” too. That’s journalism, kids.
