Ubisoft just announced a sequel to Far Cry without giving away and meaty details -- instead, the teaser site lets you scare some birds and listen to crickets before everything ignites into a fiery logo of pain, bongo drums, and restless crickets. Kotaku reports that the game will be available in 2008 for the PC and the marketing speak says Far Cry 2 will be better than sex with Rachel Welch in the 80's, you know, before the crows ate her face.

Far Cry marked the beginning of a new era for shooters. An era of gorgeous graphics and of advanced artificial intelligence. We are confident that Far Cry 2 will have the same impact again on the FPS genre landscape.

Funny how every game ever assigned to a marketing person is going to re-write the future of all video games to follow, isn't it? I guess its less exciting that saying "Hey gamers, we've barely even started but we hope this game will be marginally better than other stuff!".  It would be more true, at least.

Care to speculate what the game will be about or where it will be set?  The teaser graphic doesn't offer us much other than a tequila sunrise and a slender tree.  Is the music indicative of an African setting or is David Byrne freelancing? I poked around the official forums and came up with nothing -- guess we'll just have to wait and see.  Whatever they're planning, I hope it can wait until Crysis is done and waiting for me with open arms at my local demoralized EB games.
