Plughead.net: Far Cry 3 may be announced soon, but CV hints at possible console exclusivity.
That would be silly.
Crytek are a primary PC developer , thats like nintendo making a game on the 360/ps3 but not on the wii, it makes no sense
Is crytek making the 3rd one? I thought the rights were sold to Ubisoft seeing as how FarCry2 was made by a completely different dev team.
Crytek isn't owner of the IP anymore. Read some info about the game you're gonna comment about for God's sake. Anyway, if they just iron the small scale bugs, add more varied weapons, make the multiplayer experience better with varied maps and balanced classes and also release it for PC with a map creation tool, it'll be day 1 for me.
Crytek is NOT the Developer of Far Cry 3 nor did Crytek develop Far Cry 2. Crytek did the Classic title that is Far Cry and the other two were done by under achieving Ubisoft Montreal. I wish Crytek would get the series back and do a proper FC sequel.
Far Cry 2 ran pretty good on PC, but Ubisoft isn't exactly the best PC developer as we've seen with all the issues that all the Rainbow Six games have had on PC and also GRAW 1 + 2. I think they've had so many issues with their PC games, and they're tired of the complaints. So I wouldn't be surprised if they made Far Cry 3 console exclusive. Its one of the reasons why its handy to own a console in addition to PC especially when something like this happens.
question to other pc gamers. do you really care if far cry 3 goes pc or not?.we've all seen the extent of montreal ubisofts talent. far cry 2 was a great benchmark and nice to look at it. but will farcry3 on pc really be missed? its extremely late into current gen in a market dominated by better shooters. imo author is trying to get a rise outta pc gamers.
Crytek doesn't make farcry 2 or 3!! only farcry 1! Then they left ubi & started Crytek!!
Crytek don't make Far Cry games any more, it's Ubisoft in-house.
Hip Hip Hooray! Far Cry 3 is a GFWL title so it might as well not come to the PC cause so many PC Gamers hate GFWL. If I do get FC3, I will the get the FC3 NO GFWL Cracked Edition. (You can buy games and crack them to avoid stupid DRM so don't go all crazy with the Pirate replies) side note..I wish Crytek would buy this series back cause Far Cry was a classic game that deserves a proper sequel instead of more "Grand Theft First Person Shooter Africa".
I had to succumb to GFWL when ArkhamAsylum was released. Turns out you can keep an offline profile which avoids all the headaches. Or well, it avoided the headaches for me.
Far Cry 2 wasn't a GFWL game. Ubisoft have never used GFWL. Where did you get the idea that FC3 would be a Games For Windows Live game? Second point though I agree.
I've never had any issues with GFWL. GTA4 for PC ran great and Resident Evil 5 ran great without issues. I love the Live connectivity and the fact that my Xbox 360 friends can see my achievements and send me messages and such. I could never understand the hate for GFWL. The menu system is pretty slick IMO and the Xbox button on my 360 controller works just as if I were playing on a 360.
@BattleAxe The problem with GFWL is that it is not slick. It's menu/guide is slow and LOW resolution. Games download and THEN need to install. On steam, game download and they are done, they don't install. The ONLY thing that sometimes installs on steam is any program besides the game that is needed/optional (PB, SDK's, DX runtimes, etc) which also install on GFWL. Steam's overlay runs much better, scales with your resolution perfectly, has a browser, allows chat windows, not the lame messaging system of GFWL/XBL. GFWL and XBL are nice, but when you compare it to steam (or xfire when it comes to purely social connectivity), it is behind.
hahah, biiig mistake!
*sniff* *sniff* is that bull crap I smell?
Nintendo Striim exclusive perhaps?
Could you imagine GTAV being a timed exclusive for the new Nintendo system? People would go ape sh*t!
yeah it won't /s but diablo 3 really is not coming to console or the witcher 1 and 2 or starcraft 2 or stalker or empire total war or........................... ..............
Actually STALKER 2 is coming to the console but the Dev (GSC Game World) have already said the PC verison is the lead platform and the one to get cause they had to sacrifice to get stuff on the consoles. The witcher 2 on console....MAYBE 6 months down the road only AFTER The PC release. The other games you mentioned HELL NO!
Yeah. The witcher 2 could work very nicely on consoles, gameplay wise. It would also earn CDPR some well-earned revenue, as long as they don't sell-out after that it's fine. Some PC games certainly leand themselves very well to a successful port to consoles.
Not that much of a loss if it doesn't
Well Far Cry 2 was crap, so I agree. Far Cry stopped being Far Cry the moment Crytek stopped being involved.
I own Far Cry 1 and 2. I like both of them, 2 was kinda dry in my opinion, the brush was too easy to light up, lol. But seriously, I hope it comes to the PC but if it doesn't I wouldn't cry too much over it. With the flux of FPS games coming out, there needs to be some kind of culling.
"2 was kinda dry in my opinion" - because it was set in a savanna? no? :-)
i'm sorry i'm alergic to bullshit
that would be good for company because they gonna earn more money(pc-pirates)
That would be a massive fail on their part, considering the first Far Cry was a PC exclusive and the PC version of the second was head and shoulders above the other versions. I'd be really surprised if it did turn out to be console only, but with Ubisoft you never really know.
Games are always better if PC is the main dev platform. Call of Duty 1, 2, 4 were all great games that set the bar for FPS'. Look what has happened since Activision has made consoles the main dev platform for CoD; the franchise has basically spiraled into a pile of crap. Crysis 1 was critally acclaimed and had groundbreaking graphics. Then along comes crysis 2 - a game developed for consoles. The result: an average game with no graphical improvements, infact, many PC gamers says Crysis 1 still looks better Fallout 3 - the same thing happened. It could've been alot better if PC was the main platform. The Elder Scrolls? this is going to be the next victim in my opinion. I bet consoles are the main dev platform, which will result in dumbed down gameplay and less detailed game mechanics. I see they have already overhauled the whole levelling and magicka system.....or dumbed down, if you want to get straight to the point Now Farcry - previously a pc exclusive - is no longer on pc? I bet it will be as bad, if not worse, than farcry 2 was
there's a lot more going for CoD which made it a pile of crap it is now, not just because of consoles! no mod, no dedicated servers, paid DLC like consoles and not to forget the rehashed engine since 2007 are among the better reason it's CRAP!
And? Farcry 2 was a pile of crap. We don't want it on PC... except maby for benchmarking.
Who's "We" exactly? Just because you didn't like it doesn't mean you get to speak for every PC gamer out there. I've heard people say "we don't want [insert game here] on PC" numerous times, as if they know exactly what every PC gamer wants and came to the conclusion that not a soul would play it or that somehow it's not welcome on the platform. It's just pure arrogant bullsh*t, people need to cut out this "we" crap and speak only for themselves.
I like Far Cry 2. It looks and plays great. The only issues I have is: a) Respawning outposts. b) No civilians. If you see someone, you can be sure he'll shoot at you.
Go back to an Island Paradise or just throw the series in the trash altogether, everyone knows the main selling point of Far Cry 1 on PC was the Beautiful Island: http://img856.imageshack.us... http://img802.imageshack.us...
not releasing an fps to pc is a serious bad sign.
I love how lots of pc gamers respond so cocky & negatively towards consoles possibly getting pc games & automatically assume that consoles can't handle those pc games or it's gonna be inferior to the pc versions lmfao!
It's because they usually turn out to be worse than the games that started on pc.
It's not a matter of not wanting PC games on consoles. PC gamers just want to be treated fairly on the system they prefer. It would be stupid if the Far Cry series went PC Exclusive > Multiplatform > Console Exclusive. That wouldn't make any sense.
it's an ego trip rather then a fact!
It's Hugo Stiglitz!!!
Far Cry 2 had so much promise, but ultimately failed to deliver. Just hope FC3 improves on the map editor and cuts down on the amount of driving required to do 1 friggin mission..
helis would be a great idea
The good thing about Ubisoft is, as Assassin's Creed II proves, they listen to criticism. I have confidence that Far Cry 3 will be a vast improvement on Far Cry 2.
meh to ubi! I'll wait for Stalker 2 PC will be lead platform so no worries! Plus Red Orchestra 2 is PC exclusive sooo who cares? innovation plus 64 players > console rehashes.. - http://www.youtube.com/watc... No way I can use a controller!
