Next Far Cry Could Include Dinosaurs

Ubisoft surveyed select Far Cry 4 gamers in December about what they want from a future title.

Cocaine, Viet Cong soldiers, or dinosaurs could be in the next Far Cry game, with gamers influencing the final decision.

According to Eurogamer, Ubisoft sent surveys in December to select Far Cry 4 players about the type of content they want in a future title. The survey, distributed through Global TestMarket, gave the option to select three of 12 options with one of those being a write-in.

Options on the survey included:

  • A Far Cry game in remote Alaska about surviving extreme wilderness
  • A Far Cry game in a futuristic, sci-fi setting on another planet
  • A Far Cry game set in the Vietnam war during the 1960s
  • A Far Cry game set in the cocaine trafficking jungles of Peru
  • A Far Cry game where you can fight against or join vampires
  • A Far Cry game in the Spaghetti Western style set in the 19th century Americas
  • A Far Cry game that is set during a zombie outbreak
  • Blood Dragon 2: A sequel to Blood Dragon
  • A Far Cry game set in a Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic world
  • A Far Cry game in the present day on a Jurassic Park style island of dinosaurs
  • A Far Cry game based on the world of Shangri-La from Far Cry 4

The options vary in category, from time setting to geographical location and theoretical situation. This extends the range of what the series could look like, which has seen several changes in the setting rather than the time period.

Past Far Cry games have taken place in the Himalayas, Africa, and tropical islands in the Pacific Ocean. Ubisoft has previously polled players about Assassin’s Creed, a survey that influenced titles such as Assassin’s Creed 3 and Assassin’s Creed Unity.

Far Cry 4 is currently available for the Sony PlayStation 3 and 4, Microsoft Xbox 360 and One, and Microsoft Windows.

    Alaska would be an interesting one. Especially when the whole things melts and the rest of the world is water...
