Those of you with tears, prepare to shed them.
According to studio creative director Alex Hutchinson, Ubisoft Montreal has no sequel in the works for 2013’s Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. Though the satirical first-person shooter homage to 1980s action films immediately captured the hearts of both fan and critic alike, the studio responsible does not intend to reprise Blood Dragon.
During an IGN podcast, Hutchinson recently remarked that “[Blood Dragon] was a great use of the Far Cry 3 base, and had an awesome soundtrack. But no, you won’t get another one of those.”
Perhaps to assuage the concerns of his misty-eyed audience, Hutchinson also insinuated that Ubisoft might have some surprises in store for the consumers. “That’s what was cool about [Blood Dragon]: it was surprising,” he recalled. Though there may never be another Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Hutchinson upholds that “[…] hopefully [Ubisoft]’ll be able to surprise you with something just as much.“
Hopefully indeed—for at the moment, all one can do is hope. Neither Hutchinson nor Ubisoft has elaborated any further as to the particular details of their projects. After all, where’s the fun in a spoiled surprise?
