Far Cry 3 confirmed, may not be set in Africa

Ubisoft has confirmed that Far Cry 3 is in development, though it’s currently unclear as to where the game will be set this time.

Whether to head to Africa with Far Cry 3 seems to be the burning question for Ubisoft. The series, originally birthed by Crytek, was confirmed to be seeing a third iteration in an OPM interview with Ubisoft script writer Kevin Shortt.

Although the details stopped there, our friends at IncGamer have managed to get an Ubisoft source to tell them that the game most likely won’t be set in Africa.

We’re still in very early development and we have no idea where it’s going to be set, but I’m pretty sure that it won’t be in Africa.

However, it’s early days yet so any of these decisions could change in time. Any ideas or preferences on Far Cry 3’s location?

Far Cry 3 is stunning visually and has alot of different terraine like deserts jungles rivers and towns
