Ubisoft Shanghai is contributing to the development of Far Cry 4, judging by the CV of one of the studio’s employees.

While details on the unannounced project remain slim, Ubisoft Shanghai’s studio design manager Xavier Plagnal claims to have been serving as “content director on the next Far Cry” since September 2013.

He previously served as the content director on Splinter Cell: Blacklist’s Hunter co-op mode, his profile states, and worked on NCIS: The Game, Beowulf and an undisclosed Ubisoft Action RPG.

Ubisoft Shanghai also helped contribute to the development of Far Cry 3 alongside Ubisoft Massive, Ubisoft Red Storm and Ubisoft Montreal.

Though Ubisoft has yet to formally announce the game, the publisher teased last July that the first details on Far Cry 4 would be revealed soon.

“It’s a great brand,” said Ubisoft’s senior VP marketing and sales Tony Key, speaking of Far Cry 3’s success, “and now it’s got the recognition it deserves, so we’re clearly going to make another one: more on that soon.”

Could an E3 reveal be on the cards for Far Cry 4?
