Ubisoft today announced that an all-new Far Cry title is in development for PC. The hotly anticipated follow-up to the smash hit Far Cry, which was developed by Crytek Studios (who're now working on Crysis
for EA), Far Cry 2 is being handled internally for Ubisoft at their Montreal-based studios and is due to hit in the early part of 2008 according to the Ubi press release.
"Far Cry marked the beginning of a new era for shooters. An era of gorgeous graphics and of advanced artificial intelligence," declared John Parkes, marketing director, EMEA. "We are confident that Far Cry 2 will have the same impact again on the face of the FPS genre."
