It takes serious bravado to launch a shooter in the same month as genre behemoth Call of Duty

Release Date: 22/10/2012

It takes serious bravado to launch a shooter in the same month as genre behemoth Call of Duty, but that's exactly what Ubisoft will do when it releases Far Cry 3 in November, shortly after Black Ops II. Madness? Apparently not, according to Ubisoft brand manager Henri Guay.

Speaking to games industry trade magazine MCV, he explained that Far Cry 3's open world design and tropical location sets it apart from the shooter crowd, and makes it the perfect choice for players looking for something different.

"Far Cry has always been a little bit off the map in terms of the offer that it gives," he said. "People are going to continue to play Call of Duty and people are going to look for experiences that give them something a little bit different. We feel we're in a comfortable spot."

Ubisoft has supported the title all the way, he says, to the extent that features that were in danger of being cut ended up staying in the game because the team wanted people to see them.

"Far Cry 3 is a big game and there's an expectation," adds Dan Hay, the game's product manager. "We wanted to make it as great as it absolutely can be. There were a couple of things we were talking about cutting from the game that I just couldn't bear to take away from the consumer."

Far Cry 3 is out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 30th. Call of Duty: Black Ops II comes to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on November 13th.
