Probably game announcement today and full reveal in Game Informer this thursday. Would match with the reveal of the new GI cover this week.

Good!

Dinosaurs are overrated, especially since no one bothers to portray them properly by always opting for scales over feathers.
Dinosaurs would also mean creating all new assets and animations. I'm under the assumption that the game in question is not AAA but a mere reskin/spin-off.

Why are people even bringing up dinosaurs? Have people skipped their History lessons?
Christopher Columbus sailed to America and found dinosaurs but this caused a shift that changed the climate around the globe dramatically. After many years the dinosaurs slowly died off and the pilgrams domesticated sabertooth tigers and mammoths iirc.

Next Ubisoft announcement:

Ubisoft announces the closure of its Switzerland studio for "consolidation" and the transfer of all its staff to Ubisoft Romania and Ubisoft Bulgaria.

This reveal is going to take hours, there isn't even a line from that sacrifice scene on the image right now.

No dinosaurs? Where to fuck it up UBI. Yeah they're not historically accurate but it's not like the series is all that realistic. Aside from who you might ask about Far Cry 2.

A campy cavemen versus dinosaurs game would have been cool.

I mean we could go all historically accurate and play as dinosaurs but they have a crippling lack of firearms.

Time to climb randomly scattered big fucking trees to unlock parts of the map.

Would be nice though if this game didn't follow the tired as fuck Ubisoft Open World™ blueprint.
Yup,they keep reusing the same shit in AC and FC.

People in here acting like there's been tons of dinosaurs in video games... fuckin' a. It's been nearly a decade since we've had a AAA dinosaur experience. Also the poll from back in the day for FarCry specifically mentioned dinosaurs. So if there are no dinos in this game, I'm gonna be bummed the hell out.

I doubt it, but ask the guy who is being pedantic over my fiscal year question. ;p

He seems in the know.
I think it's pretty clear to randomly bringing up fiscal year in a game announcement thread seems to be motivated by trying to look in the know.

What the hell is the point?

I hope I can overhear conversions between bears about 'fucking Jason Brody' wreaking havoc across the area, all in a thick South African accent. Is there any other reason to play Far Cry?

This obsession with dinosaurs is eye-roll inducing.

It would definitely be cool to see a realistic take on prehistoric times.
