Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon in the works?

Brazilian classification ratings board reveals new first-person shooter may be coming to Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

There may be more Far Cry 3 in the works. The Brazilian classification ratings group (via Joystiq) has posted a listing for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, describing the project as a first-person shooter for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

No further information is available and a Ubisoft representative was not immediately available to comment. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said in February that "fans certainly won't have to wait for more years for the next Far Cry."

Far Cry 3 lead writer Jeffrey Yohalem told Joystiq this week that the action-shooter is getting some sort of a continuation, though it's not clear if Blood Dragon is this rumored content.

"I'm working on something now that will be surprising, I think, when it's announced," Yohalem said. "But it definitely is a 'strike while the iron's hot' thing, and we'll see."

Far Cry 3 has shipped 4.5 million copies to date. For more, check out GameSpot's review.

There should be an option where you can turn off that damn x-ray vision.

i think FC2 was way better, much more dense jungle and there's always that tense feeling of urgency and danger. Think FC3 is a good game, no doubt, but is way too easy, even on the hardest difficulty.

i would love to play more Far Cry 3, it's the best FPS game on 2012! Please consider my wish for a prequel where the main character is Vaaz.

It would be good to have an extra island for more missions or play as the bad guys and see their victory endings etc. I'd love this game to go on, its earned my respect in many ways

"it's definitely a strike while the iron is hot thing"...  Well... I suppose I appreciate the honesty, there, guy.

I am not interested in any DLC that doesn't add Dinosaurs or monsters to the game. I am sick of killing mercs and pirates.

You gotta do what you gotta do, war isn't pretty, and it's about time entertainment caught up with real life. There are mature ratings for reasons, make a new one if they have to.

Hopefully a Vaas origin story, SPOILER

Guess it would be uglier than the ending when Jason killed his friends.

This game is big enough to tolerate more vehicles, which it needs.  I say an armed helicopter and an armed combat vehicle like a BMP1 APC.   Ofcourse the enemy will have them too so you can go toe to toe.  How about adding that Napalm air strike from multiplayer to the campaign?  The code already exist so not so hard to implement, and like I said, the world is big enough for this.  BTW,  add a bridge to join the islands, driving is huge fun and joining the islands would mean great driving expeditions across.

I'm wondering if it will be DLC.

I hope it's some kind of expansion and not a full new game, too soon for that.

Blood Dragon...hmm sounds like a prehistoric reptile. For blood dragon to be great, it needs to have  Deinonychus, Spinosaurus, and T rex(remember the gaurds saying"at least this ain that island with those fu***** dinosaurs on it"). I hope this game has side missions where you hunt rare Spinosaurus, Megaladon sharks, giant crocs, and giant anaconda snakes. Add in some ancient underground lizard people and this will be the best expansion ever made. Anyone else notice the island in Farcry 3, southwest on the on the map that you can't reach and its blocked out on the map? That has got to be the Dino island.

Add a flying vehicle the player can use, like that chopper Hoyt uses. The world is huge and beautiful and flying from one island to another or just over the whole world would great, which can't be done with the glider because it constantly drops.

The single player for this game was nothing short of amazing, but for me once it was over it was over... i can't wait for master difficulty and outpost resets so I can keep playing in that sandbox how I want.  The coop and multiplayer though were really lame, I never played either for more than a couple hours wanting it to be better.  Bring open world coop, and I'm in for a new far cry, leave it out and I don't care how good the SP is, I'll be renting it at best.

Just traded in Aliens Colonial Marines for FarCry3 and playing through it now, best swap ever!... wow... definition of insanity... fantastic game.  Was playing through 'Kicking Through The Hornets Nest' level the other night and can honestly say it was one of the highlights in gaming history for me.  What a great level, I would have loved to have played it again to show off to the the guys 'ma skills' but in the PS3 version I cant seem to level select... is that the same for all versions?  Anyway looking forward to the next instalment with level select hopefully on the PS3 platform.

If they add new skills, new weapons, new enemies, new wildlife and new places to explore then I will absolutely buy it.

It better be a DLC. The latter part of Far Cry 3 was boring. The characters, the story was mediocre at best. These aren't the reasons I played the game. I played the game because I wanted to be a killer of my own making - that's what it gave me, but it could have been better. I really could have done without the story elements. I'd pick this up if it expanded on current mechanics maybe even a whole new area with things to do.

Far Cry 3 is my game of the year from 2012. I will happily buy whatever this is - DLC,  expansion, or even a new full price release. I loved every second of FC3 and can't wait for more.

It better be DLC. They need to put some Single Player DLC out that's worth playing.

Ubisoft likes to develop serial games in parallel. For example, working on AC2, brotherhood and revelations at the same time while rolling more developers on teams during the year it comes out. 

Its likely that they would be doing the same thing with farcry to establish the brand as a stronger franchise. The success of farcry 3 was a huge surprise for them so it would make sense for them to be focusing on getting a followup at least in the press as soon as possible. Hopefully, they are smart enough to not rush development on the next one. Ubisoft has a tendancy to release games that are very similar to previous ones to their own detriment. Hopefully they can manage to not over-saturate the farcry series with yearly games that feel to similar and stagnate.

Why is this crap title so misleading if its only a Xpac or DLC for FC3??

Bad Ubisoft Bad you cannot turn Far Cry into a yearly series like COD. One of the reasons FC3 was awesome cause you gave the devs time to craft and fully make the game. I really hope its DLC like for example Vaas Backstory

That had better be a DLC and not the Ubi turning Far Cry into yearly COD mishmash
