Far Cry 2 was one of the best games released in 2008 and has gone on to sell several million units worldwide, but Ubisoft hasn't, as yet, announced Far Cry 3.

Speaking to OPM, Ubisoft scriptwriter Kevin Shortt has let slip that work on a third game is currently under way.

Asked if he was working on a third Far Cry game, Shortt said: "No I'm not, but I know the team are and what I've seen looks pretty exciting."

It's not an official press release, but that sounds like a pretty solid confirmation that Ubisoft is hard at work on Far Cry 3.

i loved far cry 1 but far cry 2 was so boring,you would have to go from one side of the map to the other all the time,and its not quick to do.

Loved it myself. Same 'ere with regards to the map editor. I've created quite a few just for the enjoyment without bothering to publish. There are some awesome user generated maps around to.

It did feel like a bit of a chore getting from mission to mission in single player, though with concentrated use of the bus stops around the map, it actually makes it far more valid. If you were just dumped straight in front of an objective every time you wouldn't have the option of reconnaissance and tactical freedom. I also feel that while the fire worked and looked excellent, they just weren't big enough.

Co - Op campain would be a fantastic addition or even online team based missions like Dragon Rising and Modern Warfare 2.

Still love it, still play it....

I thought the single player campaign was pretty good (although it got repetitive after a while) but the multiplayer and map editor where fantastic (in my opinion)

it was good to an extent the fire spreading was pretty cool but the missions lacked variety in y eyes and i hated the fact that evryone u c are out to kill u which got tiresome

If they fix the amount of time spent travelling in the next one it should be great - it was my only gripe with the first game - every single mission seemed to be on the other side of the map!
