Publisher promises more information; suggests sequel will embrace “open world”.
“We're totally psyched from [Far Cry 3],” he explained, adding: “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.”
The executive went on to speculate what the future game could look like, saying that most fans want open-world non-linear titles.
He continued: "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."
Far Cry 3 was a commercial and critical success, with the 2013 gaming BAFTA's nominating the title for Action, Artistic Achievement, Audio Achievement, Best Game, Game Design and best Story categories.
