We all figured it was coming at some point, but it's nice to hear that it's in development.
During a recent interview with Lost in the Multiplex, "Drive" composer and former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Cliff Martinez spilled the beans about Far Cry 4 . The text has been edited to hide mention of the new game, but Polygon caught it before that happened:
"There's a secret mission that I'm not completely on yet, it looks like I'll also be doing a Soderbergh TV series called The Knick, and I'm working on a video game called Far Cry 4. So yeah, I'm popular all this week."
Far Cry 3 was a definite success on both the critical and financial level, and Ubisoft has said in the past that it's a "great brand." There's no doubt that a sequel is on the way; we just want to hear the official announcement, because we can't wait to get a look at Far Cry on next-gen platforms!
