Went and looked up the other options listed in that survey you mentioned:

- A Far Cry game in remote Alaska about surviving extreme wilderness
- A Far Cry game in a futuristic, sci-fi setting on another planet
- A Far Cry game set in the Vietnam war during the 1960s
- A Far Cry game set in the cocaine trafficking jungles of Peru
- A Far Cry game where you can fight against or join vampires
- A Far Cry game in the Spaghetti Western style set in the late 19th century Americas
- A Far Cry game that is set during a zombie outbreak
- Blood Dragon 2. A sequel to Blood Dragon with more Rex Power Colt
- A Far Cry game set in a Mad Max style post-apocalyptic world
- A Far Cry game in the present day, set in a Jurassic Park Style island of dinosaurs
- A Far Cry game based on the world of Shangri-La from Far Cry 4

Really? So we could have had a dinosaur island far cry and people chose not to? So disappointed in them right now! There's so few dinosaur games around and that would have been awesome!

Ugh yeah we need more open world dinosaur games..

I don't really understand the idea that two games with the same setting can't do well if released close to one another. It's like saying that Battlefield will flop if it releases close to CoD. If the game is good, it will do well. Far Cry has a pretty substantial fan-base and it's not all that similar to RDR.

As for the game itself, I'm down. Far Cry games are fun and I'm a much bigger fan of traditional rifles than I am automatic weapons. I just hope it has forests and such. I'm kind of burnt out on deserts.

You are not taking in consideration it's up against a Rockstar game, not just a similar game.
Rockstar games are massive things, all the attention will be going towards Redemption 2, not saying it'll make a Far Cry flop, but it'll certainly affect it.
Would be much more wise to hold it for a bit than actually releasing close to Redemption 2.
Primal came around February, didn't it? If Redemption 2 comes this holidays just hold it (Far Cry) until March and it's already avoiding most of the damage releasing under a Rockstar game would cause.

I just don't see it being such a big deal that they should skip the holiday season unless it really does need a delay.  One is an FPS with its own style and the other is a TPS with its own style.  Those who like Far Cry games will buy it.

Personally, if RDR2 is anything like the first game, I'll take a good Far Cry over it any day of the week.  RDR was one of my bigger gaming disappointments in recent years.  Granted, Rockstar has the resources to fix all the issues RDR had but they're going to have to prove it before I'll buy it.

I don't think you are realising how big Redemption 2 will be, even if you disliked Redemption.
The media will be all over it. All over it.

That's where it'll hurt this potential Far Cry, marketing will be harder, way harder, than it should, it'll actually affect even other non-related games, much more a similarly themed one which will end up on the "not as good at" placement whenever people talk about it, when we are still within Redemption hype.

Not only this is a new Redemption but it's also the new Rockstar game after GTA V.

Just like TLOU 2, this thing will be massive upon release, the flocking of attention over it will be insane.



Oh, I remember that poll. I have chosen Post-Apocalyptic, Western and Dino Island options. Western FC would be interesting, but will it be able to compete with RDR2? Maybe early in 2015 it was the best idea/option.

Assuming that's one of those multiplayer online survival games... then I guess to be correct I should say we need some that are actually good!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

If this is true, Ubisoft had really bad luck when picking this setting. When they ran the Far Cry setting survey back in 2015, with spaghetti western as an option people could vote on, Red Dead Redemption 2 hadn't been announced yet, so alot of people likely voted for spaghetti western hoping to whet their appetite for a western game while they waited on RDR2. Of course RDR2 has actually been announced since then and is set for release this year. Unless RDR2 is delayed (Rockstar does have a history of delaying games), Ubisoft is going to be screwed, Red Dead is much more popular than Far Cry and there's really only room for 1 western game this year. Ubisoft had better either delay Far Cry 5 themselves, or hope RDR2 is delayed until next year.

dude jurassic park or blood dragon 2 would be AMAZING with Far Cry gameplay.  I also like the zombie idea for Far Cry rather than normal post apocalypse for some reason

Good. That means I won't have to play it.

Does Ubisoft forces you to play non-western themed games?

And what do you get in return? Or are you just a slave with a single out of the loop condition?
