In what appears to be lots of talk about metaphorical fires Corre confirmed that Far Cry 4 is in the works “We haven’t announced anything yet. We’re thinking of the future of this brand. We don’t know yet when it will emerge. Again, it’s cooking. Something is cooking.” When asked if Far Cry 4 would take as long to cook as Prince of Persia Corre replied “No no! No way. We try to put the fire a bit stronger.”.
When asked about the future of Prince of Persia Corre stressed that there was a lot already on the table that had been announced at E3 and while Ubisoft titles are always in gestation, Ubisoft can’t bring each of these titles out every year. “It will happen when we feel it is ready, when the creators have brought something interesting. That’s the case for all our franchises. They’re cooking. Some are cooking longer than others, but they’re cooking.” added Corre.
It’s a similar story with Beyond Good & Evil 2; “There are some works on it. There are some iterations on it. Now, some games are taking longer to be done, depending also on the creativity the creator can bring. You see the level of quality of the games today is very high. It takes time to find the right angle and message … It’s true that the trailer we showed years ago, in the desert with the pig sneezing and flies still resonates very well. These kind of brands are part of Ubisoft’s DNA. It will happen when it will be perfect.”.
So there you have it, three highly anticipated titles are in the works, but it seems that Ubisoft might be focusing more on Far Cry 4. With the overwhelming success of Far Cry 3 it’s not surprising that they’ll be putting more effort into another Far Cry title.
