Far Cry 3 Receives Three Month Delay

As it turns out, Jason Brody’s trip to paradise will occur later than expected. Ubisoft just announced that news, stating that Far Cry 3 will bring the traveller’s nightmare to digital life on December 4th here in North America. The game’s EMEA release will occur several days earlier, on November 29.

“We’re taking more time to create the best possible gameplay experience,” said Dan Hay, producer at Ubisoft. “Far Cry 3 is a huge offering and we want every element of this insane, action-packed adventure to be of the highest possible quality for the players.”

It feels like I’m always saying the same thing when it comes to delays, but I honestly don’t mind them. After all, it’s better to play a finely-tuned game than one with issues that could have been corrected if it’d received more development time.

Far Cry 3 was originally slated to release on September 4.

UBISOFT SETS NEW RELEASE DATE FOR FAR CRY 3

MONTRÉAL — June 25, 2012 —Today, Ubisoft® announced that Far Cry 3 will be released on November 29 in EMEA and on December 4 in the U.S. Far Cry 3 will be available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, the Sony®PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows® PC.

In Far Cry 3, players step into the shoes of Jason Brody, a man alone at the edge of the world, stranded on a mysterious tropical island. In this savage paradise where lawlessness and violence are the only sure thing, players dictate how the story unfolds, from the battles they choose to fight to the allies or enemies they make along the way. As Jason Brody, players will slash, sneak, detonate and shoot their way across the island in a world that has lost all sense of right and wrong.

“We’re taking more time to create the best possible gameplay experience,” said Dan Hay, producer at Ubisoft. “Far Cry 3 is a huge offering and we want every element of this insane, action-packed adventure to be of the highest possible quality for the players.”

Along with the new release date for Far Cry 3, Ubisoft also is reaffirming its previously communicated financial guidance for 2012-13.
