Ubisoft has confirmed that Crytek's ambitious PC FPS Far Cry has slipped to Q1 2004, with the developer now focusing on the multiplayer aspect - hiring Chris Auty as lead multiplayer level designer (he of Inferno and Aztec maps from Counter-Strike fame) and Richard Tsao as multiplayer producer. Their goal is to create a multiplayer game worthy of comparison to what's described as the "spectacularly deep" single-player experience. Although there are few details available as to what's new and interesting (or "unique") about the game's multiplayer modes, Auty and Tsao seem confident.
