I want some clarification on the Far Cry 2 release date. Will it still release in March? Also will it release before the console version?

No, Yes, Maybe, and Yes, Maybe, No, definitely not, possibly and who knows.

The date keeps changing, and will probably change again if any gremlins spring up whilst in Q&A.

I'd imagine the PC version will be out before the console versions, but whether this is true or not is anyone guess - refer to my first paragraph http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Release was moved to the 08/09 financial year.

That means it will not be in March as that is in the 07/08 year.

No further clarification to the date has been announced so far.

Hi unure

Thanks for linking my blog. Most of those release dates are tentative and are sure to change. It should only be used as a indication of what should be coming out.

The last information I got is that the PS3 and Xbox360 release will be postponed to 08/09 fiscal year and the PC version stays for March. I can be wrong, no mistake about that, but I can also wish that it is March! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Would the teaser trailer and previews go public even though the game is due to hit the stores next year? If so everything seems a little early... I thought the game would be out by March 08. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I dunno where Cuz heard about the next financial year, but that 9lives interview sounded pretty convincing to me. Maybe they won't make it by March, but they should get close if they really have entered beta stage and all the features and content are finished.

Here's hoping, cos I am so hanging out for this game.

Thanks, Cuz. But this is weird, that news is a month and a half old, why are they now saying hopefully March as of a few days ago?

Either way, if the 08/09 fiscal year is true, that just means it will be out at April (at the earliest) not much different from March. Plus they are at beta. Or is that just another bloody rumour?

It would be nice to have an official, no bull, word from someone who knows what they're talking about on the production status and expected release of the game. I don't mean a specific date, since they can't predict the future, just are they expecting March/April or June/July or late 08?

I don't mean to sound like a whinger, I myself have absolute faith in Ubi delivering all of what they've promised not too far from March.

Nutcrackr
01-30-2008, 03:39 PM
I can't believe March, even though they just said it in one of the interviews. That would mean they are a month off Gold.

All things being normal this game in terms of PR doesn't quite feel like a March release, but I'd be damn happy if it were. I'd rather have less PR and get to play the game before I see it. Crysis should have been announced just a month or so before e3 2007.

Hoping for March but I'm doubtful.

Just as a previous poster had said- one of the devs in a January 30th video had said confidently "Can't wait to play you all in March of 2008"- I'm as skeptic as all of you, but I hope hes right.

There's no hype because theres no announced release date yet. Sure one of the devs said March 08, but I don't think that's an offical announcement. Hopfully in the coming weeks we'll get an announced release date.

we can't really blame them, they are very busy and i think that giving a release date would only make them stress even more, because they wouldnt want to decieve their fans, and respect an impossible delay would only make the game uncomplete =/
i know it's hard to stay in the dark, but i guess we don't have any other choice but wait till a sure date is announced. Sorry but you should try to imagine yourself in their situation :S
