Ubisoft has reached out to Far Cry fans to see what sort of setting they'd like to see for future entries in the sandbox series. Far Cry 3 took place on a tropical island, of course, while last year's Far Cry 4 was set in the Himalayas.

A full game based in the fantastical realm of Shangri La, as seen in Far Cry 4, is one of the options in the questionnaire which was emailed to some players. A sequel to the downloadable spoof spin-off Blood Dragon is also suggested. That game was a neon-soaked parody of 1980s action and sci fi movies, and starred Aliens star Michael Biehn.

The core series tends to be more down to earth than that, and among the other options are "remote Alaska", "the cocaine trafficking jungles of Peru", and Vietnam in the 1960s. A "Spaghetti Western style" Far Cry set in America in the 1800s is also suggested.

There are some more outlandish concepts on the table as well. A futuristic Far Cry on an alien planet is one, and there's the option to vote for a zombie-themed sequel, a "Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic world" or a game "where you can fight against or join vampires". Perhaps the most exciting is the prospect of a Far Cry game based on a "Jurassic Park style island of dinosaurs".

It remains to be seen which, if any, of these ideas get the approval of fans, and what Ubisoft does with the info. At the very least, it's a fun glimpse into the possible directions this franchise might be taking in the next few years.

Far Cry 4 is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
