An Ubisoft scriptwriter has confirmed to the UK's Official PlayStation magazine that Far Cry 3 is in development.
Kevin Shortt, speaking at an Avatar press event, was asked by the mag if he was working on a sequel to last year's sandbox shooter, (as reported by CVG).
"No I'm not," he said. "But I know the team are and what I've seen looks pretty exciting."
It's hardly surprising, but pre-empts an official announcement of the game from Ubisoft. Shortt probably has some explaining to do right now.
Far Cry 2 was made by Ubsioft Montreal after the French publisher took the series over from original developer Crytek. It moved the game from lush tropical islands to an African setting, and earned a respectable 8/10 from us.
