Ubisoft has unsurprisingly decided that Far Cry 2 will not be PC exclusive, but be available on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well.
The game is being put together by its Montreal studio and will run on a fancy new engine built especially for it.
Action this time takes place in Africa, and all three versions are lurking in fiscal 2008 - any time after April this year.
We had previously expected the first-person shooter sequel in the early stretch of 2008, but apparently the success of Assassin's Creed has taken some pressure of the publisher, a little like a chubby person no longer sitting on you.
The original Far Cry was developed by Crysis mastermind Crytek, but the two companies parted ways leaving Ubisoft to acquire full rights to the series in 2006.
