"For us Africa still has a huge amount of promise," Redding told videogaming247. "Let's face it, jungle islands are probably less exciting as they were four years ago."
The original Far Cry, developed by Crytek and released for PC in 2004, took place on a tropical island. A scaled-down re-imagining was later brought to Xbox 360, Xbox and Wii by Ubisoft Montreal.
"There are still things we want to do with the African setting, and I think it's safe to say we'll continue to explore it," Redding explained. "That said, we might find something new and compelling about the Antarctic setting that wants us to make the next game there, but honestly, we'e still at the preliminary stages."
