As per the El33tonline community’s discussions in mid-May, Ubisoft has delayed Far Cry 3 out of its original early September release window and into a late November/early December launch.
Far Cry 3 was originally meant to release on September 7th in Europe and the UK, but Ubisoft has today revealed a new set of dates for the publisher’s open-world first-person shooter.
Now due for release on November 29th in EMEA regions (Europe, Middle-East and Africa) and December 4th in the US, we’re going to have to wait a not-insignificant amount of time longer before we’re able to step into the shoes of Jason Brody as he begins his decent into madness on the tropical island ‘paradise’ setting of the game.
It’ll also be a while longer before we dive into Far Cry 3’s extensive multiplayer offerings. For now, though, you can read about the game’s online modes in El33tonline’s hands-on preview from E3 this year.
Producer at Ubisoft, Dan Hay, said of Far Cry 3’s delay:
“We’re taking more time to create the best possible gameplay experience. Far Cry 3 is a huge offering and we want every element of this insane, action-packed adventure to be of the highest possible quality for the players.”
In other news, Ubisoft’s Just Dance 4 will release on October 2nd in the US, while Rocksmith will be out on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Europe and the UK on September 28th, with a PC version of the music game to follow on October 19th.
