Ubisoft has confirmed that Far Cry 4 is in active development and that an official announcement will be made soon in that regard.
"We’re totally psyched from [Far Cry 3]. It’s a great brand, and now it’s got the recognition it deserves, so we’re clearly going to make another one: more on that soon," said Ubisoft senior vice president of marketing and sales Tony Key.
Far Cry 3 was released in November 2012 as an open-world Frist Person Shooter set on a tropical island. It has reached a MetaCritic score of 90%.
