I certainly hope that's the case.

It's a waste of time to create PS360 versions, though. FC3 was one of the worst performing console games we've seen in the last decade. Just an awful frame-rate.

Damn, based on the cover the enthusiastic/animated antagonist is coming back. The best thing about Far Cry 3 was Vaas.

Damn 2014 from a game we haven't even known about till now? Crazy.

Cross Gen means unoptimized current gen though, so will prob run into that good ol' " resolution news " thing come October.

Competing against AC: Unity? I thought they delayed Watch Dogs because they didn't want the same last year.

For the love of God just lock it at 30fps.

Couldn't play FC3 on 360 because of the atrocious framerate and sttutering.

Ah so it is the Himalayas. The box art looks strange to me. I wonder if it will be a true crossgen game or if they'll take out features for the last gen versions.

EDIT: oh I didn't expect a release date this soon!

Ubisoft has the art of churning out these games down to a science.

And za power of over 9000, I guess.
