Far Cry 4 release date tipped for the first half of 2015

The eagerly awaited Far Cry 4 release date will be held during the first of half 2015, latest reports have suggested.

Although publisher Ubisoft has yet to offer any formal details on the eagerly awaited game, latest reports from Eurogamer have claimed a Far Cry 4 release date is about a year away, with the game to be based in a rural Himalayan setting.

While an exact Far Cry 4 release date remains a mystery, the reports have cited unnamed insiders in suggesting the game will launch during the upcoming financial year – so before the end of March 2015.

Backing up recent reports of a change in setting, the latest rumours, which we must stress are far from confirmed, have hinting that the game will be located in the Himalayan mountain ranges. If accurate this would mark a dramatic step away from the tropical settings of recent Far Cry offerings.

Despite a change in location, it has been hinted that Far Cry 4 will feature a largely unchanged gameplay style to its predecessors, with gamers required to hunt their pray and capture small settlements, all while avoiding death and capture.

Intriguingly, gamers will reportedly be able to ride elephants within the title although this remains to be seen.

Despite the mooted Far Cry 4 release date looking likely to be around 12 months away, you apparently won’t have to wait that long for your first sneak peek. The game will be reportedly be showcased during E3 2014 in early June.

With Far Cry 3 having launched in November 2012, a H1 2015 Far Cry 4 release date would see the game have a development cycle just of just over two years. Launch platforms are currently unclear.
