Far Cry 2 announced; spring 2008 launch. Yowza!

far cry 2Courtesy of this press release by Ubisoft, the curtain has been lifted and they have officially announced the Far Cry 2 release date — expected in Spring 2008 for the PC. Far Cry 2 is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal.

The original Far Cry was developed by Crytek back in 2004; afterwards, Crytek signed a publishing deal with EA for their next game, which (as we all know) is the eagerly anticipated FPS Crysis.

Since then, Ubisoft was left with the Far Cry license and released a few console ports — Far Cry Instincts, Far Cry Instincts: Predator and Far Cry Instincts: Evolution.

John Parkes, Marketing Director for Ubisoft, said, "Far Cry marked the beginning of a new era for shooters. An era of gorgeous graphics and of advanced artificial intelligence. We are confident that Far Cry 2 will have the same impact again on the FPS genre landscape."

In the meantime, Ubisoft launched a teaser site for Far Cry 2, which hints at an African landscape. Stay tuned with GamerNode for future news!
