Former Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer and Drive composer Cliff Martinez seems to have accidentally confirmed that a Far Cry sequel is under development.
While disclosing to Lost In The Multiplex what he was currently working on in an interview, Martinez said “I’m working on a video game called Far Cry 4”. The line was picked up by a number of sources before it was taken out of the transcription of the original interview.
While this isn’t exactly a surprising news as last year, right after Far Cry 3’s completion, a “Heroes Wanted” campaign was started to hire more people for the Far Cry team’s next project.
Given Far Cry 3’s performance, another game in the series seems like a no-brainer no matter how you look at it. To further consolidate the fact that a Far Cry 3 sequel was planned, Ubisoft’s VP of Marketing and Sales; Tony Key, had the following to say several months back in response to Far Cry 3’s commercial success:
“We’re totally psyched from [Far Cry 3]. It’s a great brand, and now it’s got the recognition it deserves, so we’re clearly going to make another one; more on that soon.”
It might not be something unexpected, but what Cliff Martinez’s slip does provide is affirmation that the Far Cry team’s immediate project is indeed Far Cry 4, and confirms his involvement with the project.
Even though plans for a sequel have been definite, Ubisoft has yet to officially announce that the game is in development. We’ll keep you updated as more information regarding Far Cry 4 surfaces.
