Far Cry 3 delayed until December to create ‘best possible gameplay experience’

Ubisoft has announced a new release date for their highly anticipated shooter Far Cry 3. The game will now launch on December 4 in the U.S. and November 29 in EMEA.

According to Ubisoft producer Dan Hay, the studio is "taking more time to create the best possible gameplay experience."

Far Cry 3 is a huge offering and we want every element of this insane, action-packed adventure to be of the highest possible quality for the players.”

In Far Cry 3 players assume the role of Jason Brody, a man stranded on a mysterious tropical island where lawlessness and violence roam. From the battles fought to the allies or enemies made along the way, players will dictate how the story unfolds. As Jason Brody, players will slash, sneak, detonate, and shoot their way across the island.

Far Cry 3 wasn't the only game that received a release date today. Other Ubisoft blockbusters Just Dance 4 and Rocksmith both received launch dates in October. Just Dance 4 will now launch on October 9 in the U.S. and Rocksmith on October 16.
