In an interview with VG247, Far Cry's Creative Director, Patrick Reading told them that Far Cry 3 was already in "preliminary stages" and that the team now had a "commitment to the African setting".
Why you ask? Simple, because it's fresh, new and saves time. He was asked why they originally chose it and he told them they chose it "because we felt that in order to retain the Far Cry brand value, of an exotic, dangerous environment" they needed to chose "a place that maybe people haven’t had a chance to see themselves" and Africa sprung to mind.
Redding also mentioned the possibilities of moving the game to the Antarctic or the Amazon Rain Forest and said it is easy enough to do but it would need something to compel them to do it.
This is all preliminary speculation however so for all we know, it could end up taking place on the moon.
Can't wait till Far Cry 3? Well, there is a little game called Far Cry 2 out before then, so in the meantime, check out our preview from the Games Convention here.
