Hope they inject something new into the Far Cry formula as the last few have been too similar.  I completed 2&3 on Xbox 360.  Played 4 on PC and lost interest.  Still playing through 5 on my new PC at silly frames.

Let me guess. Two very stubborn factions who refuse to come to any agreement, inapt islanders who require me to do every single thing while yelling "We are the revolution!", a comically bad antagonist. There's bound to be drugs/hallucinations involved. There's the facade of player choice.

You know what the definition of insanity is?

One thing I really like about e3 being cancelled is that instead of watching Ubisoft and EA while I was waiting for something else I just avoided them, figuring I’d watch the trailers later. But as it turns out an even better option is available in not watching trailers for Ubisoft and EA garbage.

If you pointed a gun to my head and asked me which Far Cry that described I'd just pull the trigger myself.

 

(I'd probably say 4)

Ubisoft continuing to boast that [NEW GAME] has the largest map yet!!!!111

 

Out of interest does that boast actually excite anyone anymore. I can’t think of  any modern Ubisoft open world game I’ve played where I thought for one second ‘You know what, this is okay, but just I wish it had an even bigger landmass to commute across between icons’.

I really enjoyed FC5, had a blast in fact. But only beat one of the three deputies because by that point I'd put over 30 hours in doing side missions and all that UbiWork and was just fed up. 

 

By the sounds of it this is the same as 3, 4 and 5 except they've found another setting. It'll have all the usual stuff in it albeit with a bit of a twist. Can't say the setting is getting me as hyped as I was for 5. Personally I'd say put Far Cry to bed, it's done. Just remaster FC2 so it'll play on modern PCs, I'd buy that.

Ubisoft already suffered badly from identikit game design and repetitive content. Can imagine it’s only going to get worse as more and more of their senior designers get suspended for being Turbo-Weinsteins.

What are Ubisoft's main money-spinners?

 

Far Cry (open-world FPS set in exotic locations) - 5 games + 3 standalone DLC-ish spinoffs

Assassin's Creed (originally open-world stealth, morphed into period open-world RPG) - lost count 

The Division (looter-shooter/MMO) - 2 games

Watch_Dogs (3rd person open-world GTA-alike) - 2 games

 

... and stuff like The Crew, Steep and other activity-type games designed to keep people engaged. 

 

It's all getting a bit stale but when you boil everything down they have all the bases covered, they just have to find new and interesting settings. 

 

I honestly cannot see them innovating any time soon as far as their main gaming franchises go.

Fair play to Ubisoft for releasing a game in which a character spends 30 hours telling you that the definition of Insanity is "doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result" and go on to release that same game 50 fucking times.
