Far Cry 4 set in the Himalayas or nearby location, according to insider - rumour

Far Cry 4 is allegedly set in the Himalayas, according to industry insider Superannuation. He's got a strong track record with this kind of thing, but his claim should still be treated as rumour.

The claim follows rumours that Far Cry 4 is currently in development over at Ubisoft Shanghai, according to the LinkedIn CV of one employee.

It went down over on Twitter:

Oops. But this isn't entirely a far-fetched claim, seeing as Far Cry has already done jungles and deserts, it could be that Ubisoft Shanghai wants to try out a snow environment next. The mention of monsters could come as worrying for some though.

Ubisoft has declined to comment.
