Ubisoft Sends Survey to Far Cry Fans for Next Game’s Premise
The creative teams at Ubisoft aren't sure if they want the next Far Cry game to have you fighting vampires, surviving a zombie apocalypse, exploring the future, taking out Peruvian drug lords or hunting in 'Jurassic Park'.
Ubisoft has sent out a survey to Far Cry fans to help determine the setting of a future game of the series, Eurogamer reports. A questionnaire was sent to fans of Far Cry 4 that asks for insight regarding the premise of the series' next title. The survey's potential ideas range from practical/interesting (surviving in the extreme areas of Alaska, fighting drug lords in Peru, a Vietnam-era shooter... again) to otherworldly (vampires, a 'Jurassic Park'-like island with dinosaurs, another planet with futuristic technology and more).
We had a feeling Ubisoft would hit a wall after its adventures with Kyrat -- Far Cry 4 helped expand the exotic locations and over-the-top gameplay that the series is known for, but where should it go from here? We'd love to see a first-person Spaghetti Western. Sure, there have been some great cowboy games over the years, but only a few first-person ones. Of course, Ubi could use some dino-DNA and go Turok-mode.
Stay tuned as we'll provide up-to-date coverage on this next Far Cry title once more information is available.
