Ubisoft today announced Far Cry 2 for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 is currently in development at their Montreal studio. The exclusive next-gen shooter is expected in stores sometime in late 2008 or early 2009 – we’re guessing the latter.
Ubisoft describes Far Cry 2 as follows: “More than just a visual and technological achievement, Far Cry 2 immerses players in an entirely new kind of gaming experience, featuring a custom-made video game engine built from the ground up. Players will discover a true open world gameplay set in one of the most beautiful environments in the world, Africa, brought to life by high-definition next-gen technology.”
A more comprehensive reveal of Far Cry 2 will appear in the March issue of Playstation: the Official Magazine, due on shelves February 12.
