Far Cry 3 delayed until December 4

Ubisoft announced earlier today that Far Cry 3 will be delayed until December 4, three months later than the previous planned release date of September 4.

Ubisoft announced earlier today that Far Cry 3 will be delayed until December 4, three months later than the previous planned release date of September 4.

In Far Cry 3 you play as Jason Brody who is searching for a missing girlfriend on a stranded island full of insane mercenaries, especially Vaas—the lead antagonist.  In the demo at E3, the sceneries are spectacular, but that’s if you have the time to actually catch a glimpse as you have to constantly stab or gun down the enemies. 

The new Far Cry will be powered by the Dunia 2 engine, and three other studios are involved in the game development.  Ubisoft has yet to confirm why the game is delayed, and releasing the game three months later means that there are stiff competitions from titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Halo 4.  However, since the Far Cry 3 new release date is around the holiday season, the competition factor may be negated by demands during Christmas.

Ubisoft raked in $1.3 billion in sales last year and the Far Cry franchise has to do a lot with it.  The third installment is highly anticipated, and hopefully Ubisoft doesn’t disappoint now that they’re taking an extra three months to work on the title.
