Far Cry 3 was one of last year’s best games and is widely considered to be one of the best FPS experiences of this generation. It looks like Far Cry 3 fans might not have to wait much longer for more of it.
The Brazilian Classification ratings group has posted a curios listing for something called Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. The project is filed as a first-person-shooter coming to the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC (via Joystiq). The tip on the listing came from @lifelower, who is noted to be “typically reliable.”
Far Cry 3 lead writer Jeffrey Yohalem hinted that the game is getting some kind of continuation. Whether that continuation is coming in the form of DLC or some kind of new entry in the franchise, we don’t know at this time.
“I’m working on something now that will be surprising, I think, when it’s announced. But it definitely is a ‘strike while the iron’s hot’ thing, and we’ll see,” Yohalem told Joystiq.
It is also unclear whether or not Yohalem is referring to the same product the Brazilian Classification lists.
