Far Cry 2, Just Cause 2 heading to X360 and PS3

justcauseUbisoft and Eidos Interactive revealed a double-whammy today and confirmed that Far Cry 2 and Just Cause 2 will head to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Previously, only Far Cry 2 was definitely confirmed for PC, while Just Cause 2 remained platform-less.

Far Cry 2 will be set in Africa and Ubisoft Montreal is handling the game’s development. They developed the entire console Far Cry "spin-offs" after Ubisoft acquired the Far Cry license back in 2006 from Crytek. A release date is expected during Ubisoft’s 2009 fiscal year, which begins on April 1st.

Initial details of Just Cause 2 come from CVG; Peter Johansson, lead game designer, summed up the sequel by saying, "We identified the key areas we wanted to improve for Just Cause 2. We wanted to make better use of our huge game world, enhance the stunts, improve the combat and reward exploration more."

Just Cause 2 will utilize a new game engine and this time, Rico can explore an entirely new island called Panau. I’ve been enjoying Just Cause on GameTap for a few days, despite some awkward controlling; the game is pretty harmless fun. Color me interested.
