According to Gamespot, Ubisoft has promised to reveal more details about Far Cry 4 soon.
Ubisoft senior vice president of marketing and sales, Tony Key, said that the success of Far Cry 3 is what ensured a sequel.
"We’re totally psyched from [Far Cry 3]. 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 also made a comment about the open-world genre: "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."
"They don’t want linear; they want open [world]," he continued. While Key did add that "there’s always going to be a place for linear experiences," he said Ubisoft was particularly capable at making large-scale, open-ended games.
Far Cry 3 was originally launched back in 2012 and received extremely positive reviews from both gaming sites and gamers alike for its fun open-world experience on a tropical island.
