Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 was an astonishing success, selling strongly and garnering a Metascore in the 90s. Ubisoft, knowing success when it stares it in the face, is planning another installment.
Ubisoft senior vice president of marketing and sales Tony Key, speaking to Gamespot, said, ” We’re totally psyched..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 mention the success of the open world genre as of late, citing that gamers want fewer linear experiences and prefer more open games. Ubisoft is committed and capable to delivering those. Finally, Key also mentioned Prince of Persia, and implored fans to be patient for a new entry, as Ubisoft has not yet sold the property and it’s not going anywhere.
