Far Cry 4 is in the works at Ubisoft Shanghai, according to a LinkedIn CV

Far Cry 4 is all but announced, and a recent CV listing on LinkedIn shows that Ubisoft Shanghai is working on “the next” Far Cry game.

Multiple studios working on one game has become standard practice for the French publisher, one main studio handles most of the design process and the rest is done with the help of other Ubisoft-owned studios. So there’s a good chance some other studio is actually leading development on what could be Far Cry 4.

This isn’t the first time we heard some Far Cry 4 whispers through grapevine either. Last October composer Cliff Martinez said he was working on the game, and Ubisoft has always been keen on the idea of a sequel to Far Cry 3.

Do you think Ubisoft will be announcing this properly at E3? Let us know your thoughts.

    I wonder what the setting is, another island perhaps? Or somewhere else? I’d love to see Africa again, or maybe something completely different, something more asian.

    Rook Island IS Asian.
    I want someplace with snow to be honest.
    Something taken straight out of ‘The Grey’ would be mental.

    Just keep the acid trips, loved those parts in FC3.

    I would eat my shoes if the made a Far Cry that was set in the Everglades.

    As a winter lover, a snowy setting would be great.

    I had high hopes for FC3 multiplayer. Loved all the new features but the LAG was a game-breaker for online MP. A little hesitant about jumping on the hype train for this one.

    I’d like to see snow too; Farcry Snowmobiles would be awesome (anyone else thinking No One Lives Forever?).
    But to me the tropical location is key to the games aesthetics, it would be cool if an event in game triggered a blizzard over a tropical island; so half way through the game the map was altered with new terrain and transport options. They like adding WW2 ‘lost superweapons’ so I think it could work.
    I’d also like to see:
    Farcry 4: Bloodier Dragon OR
    Farcry 4: Gilberts Wrath (AKA The Island of exploding monkeys)

    Far Cry 1 felt long and boring after a while and lil restricted. Far Cry 2 was huge, hated the constant pill popping, and getting to missions alive was hard enough, i gave up it was that boring.
    Far Cry 3 though, loved it, almost complete freedom apart from unlocking the 2nd island which is fine. The weapon choices, esp the bow and sniper rifle. The fact you could choose how you take down an enemy base, go in guns blazing, start a fire, or snipe from a distance, hell even let the animals do the job for you. You could also choose to better all your equipment with hunting, i ended up doing that before doing story missions. So Far Cry 4, gonna be reveal at E3 and release next yr. Sadly i think so many games will be announced at E3 but 90% will be out 2015. That will be the year to finally look into getting a nextgen console
