Far Cry 5 setting poll released to gamers by Ubisoft

Ubisoft has sent selected Far Cry 4 gamers a poll asking them to choice what setting they’d like to see for a future Far Cry title.
 
According to a poll sent to a selection of Far Cry 4 gamers, Ubisoft is considering several settings for its next Far Cry game, which may well be Far Cry 5.
 
The questionnaire was sent out to players over the past couple of weeks, some of which got in touch with Eurogamer to show off the potential settings for the next Far Cry game.
 
Ubisoft’s poll mentions potential locales for the next game, including Alaska and Peru, the former would no doubt take advantage of the frozen Himalayan wilderness explored in Far Cry 4.
 
But, the poll also hints at historical settings like the Vietnam War and a Spaghetti Western-inspired late 19th Century setting. Just imagine a game that is basically Far Cry crossed with Red Dead Redemption.
 
Ubisoft even goes so far as to suggest a “Far Cry game where you can fight against or join vampires” – so think Twilight…
 
Then there’s “a Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic world”, one with zombies, or the pretty awesome “Far Cry set in the modern day on a Jurassic Park-style island with dinosaurs”.
 
The poll also lists a Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon sequel and also a revisit of Far Cry 4’s Shangri-La.

Ubisoft has a strong history of asking gamers for their input into upcoming games, especially for Assassin’s Creed titles.
 
In 2010, a poll was released asking gamers about features that would eventually turn up in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.
 
Then in 2011, a poll for future Assassin’s Creed settings included the American Revolution and Victorian England – the former used for Assassin’s Creed 3 and then the latter due to be the setting for the 2015 leaked Assassin’s Creed: Victory.
