Far Cry 2 due to arrive in autumn

Getting louder.

Ubisoft has narrowed the release of Far Cry 2 down to autumn this year.

Despite murmurings of a delay, the publisher assured Eurogamer this is the first time a date for the title has been mentioned since it was pushed into fiscal 2008 at the beginning of the year.

Ubisoft is also confident that PC, PS3 and 360 versions will launch simultaneously, and that a demo is likely to appear, although there's no specific word on its whereabouts just yet.

Far Cry 2 is set in Africa this time around, which is, ahem, a far cry from the familiar tropical island locations of previous games.

This, a fresh engine, and a "no bullsh**" approach are all part of Ubisoft distancing itself from the Crytek-developed original.

Pop over to our Far Cry 2 preview to see why we are particularly excited about this one.
