The Far Cry Games We Never Got

Far Cry 2 is a high-powered shooter for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. That's not all, apparently!

According to the resume of Ubisoft's Philippe Baude, there was a version of Far Cry 2 in the works for the PSP and the Wii in late 2006 and early 2007, but the games were cancelled.

Far Cry 2 was the sequel to Far Cry, which was developed by Crytek. There was a Far Cry title released for the Wii, 2006's Far Cry: Vengeance (above). It looked like a dog's breakfast.

Ubisoft is currently working on a new Far Cry for 2012, which is cleverly titled Far Cry 3.

    Far Cry 2 was developed by Ubisoft Montreal, not Crytek. Crytek went on to do Crysis after Far Cry 1.

      AHHH! I knew there was a reason why it wasn't nearly as good as Crysis.

      He's saying FarCry was developed by Crytek...

      doesnt say far cry 2 was made by crytek

      "Far Cry 2 was the sequel to Far Cry, which was developed by Crytek. "

      When written like that it refers to far cry 1

    I think he's referring to the original with that comment. But the grammar is technically incorrect. ;)

    Ashcraft strikes again!!!!

    But seriously though, it is always good to know that Kotaku employ only the most knowledgeable people on the subject of video games. :D

    Bring on Far cry 3, back to the tropical setting.

      YES. FC3 looks awesome, my only complaint is about how it made one of my mates start quoting that 'definition of insanity' dude. Seriously - it's getting worse than his Halo babble and thats been known to last for up to 5 hours only pausing for breath.
