Today Ubisoft FR updated their Facebook page with the following cryptic screen and message...

An island that we never really left.


What with FarCry 4 releasing in November 2014 and Assassin's Creed taking a year off there's a very large window for something new in the FarCry franchise and going off the above post it could directly tie in with events during FarCry 3.

What do you guys think?

Ironic marketing considering that all the Far Cry games have basically been the same since 2.

An island that we never really left.
A radio tower that we never stopped climbing.

And since you mention 2:

A game that Snowy never stopped hating

Bulletproof t-shirts we never stopped shooting
A million random collectables we never stopped to collect

Am I doing it right? Also if it isn't Blood Dragon 2 I'm not buying it ¬_¬

Endangered species we never stopped slaughtering
Trigens that never stopped ruining the original
Co-op that was never well implemented

This source is obscure as hell but what it points to actually sounds like it could be extremely interesting...

A church on the northeastern Montana prairie that once served family and band members of the late Lakota Sioux Chief Sitting Bull will soon be featured in an upcoming video game.

The Mni-Sda (Still Water) Presbyterian Church, known locally as the Chelsea Church, sits just off U.S. Highway 2 between Poplar and Wolf Point.

Its belfry is what attracted filmmakers to the structure, which was constructed in 1904, and is the oldest church on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation.

Monday, crew members used a drone that repeatedly flew by the belfry filming a man fighting with another man near a hanging bell as a train rolled by on the tracks a half-mile away. The footage mostly will be used for promotion of the video game.

The fiberglass bell built specifically for the scene was shipped to Montana via airplane.

Producers couldn’t release the name of the video game but said production areas for it stretched more than 5,000 miles from California to Montana.

“This is a sequel to an existing global franchise,” said Los Angeles-based Producer Jeff Guillot, who came to the reservation with 11 other crew members from Paris, Los Angeles and Bozeman.

The backstory of the video game, which will be released in September, is of a world that takes place in an imaginary location, Guillot said.

The location and art departments for the film are manned by a Bozeman crew, including location manager Will Brewster who was charged with the task of finding the perfect belfry for the project.

Concerning the original image I posted...

Ubisoft have stated that it was merely a throwback post rather than a hint of a new game or even remaster.

So potentially a wild west game in the far cry vein. Could be interesting I suppose. Shame that developers aside from some rare exceptions like Red Dead and Call of Juarez haven't really managed to grip the time period with any real justice.

The last (and only) western game I ever played was the old lucasarts Outlaws from way back in 1997. Loved it to bits, especially the spaghetti western style music. If done right, I would love to play another.

Something with a different theme to what we normally get would be nice.

I'm ready for another one of these. The American setting makes it a plus as well.
I do appreciate some tasteless European takes on the States, apparently.

Some kind of No Country for Old Men vibe would work well I think. Here's hoping they avoid (a) a cast made up exclusively of cunts, (b) climbing fucking towers, (c) death by icons and (d) the mindless slaughter of wildlife to make stuff.

A bit of original thought and this could be really good.
