During a recent interview with Lost in the Multiplex, Drive composer and former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Cliff Martinez revealed Far Cry 4 is in development.

Asked what projects he is currently working on, Martinez outed the unannounced game. The original text has been edited to remove mention of the game, but Polygon saw the story before the change was made.

"There's a secret mission that I'm not completely on yet, it looks like I'll also be doing a Soderbergh TV series called The Knick, and I'm working on a video game called Far Cry 4," he said. "So yeah, I'm popular all this week."

A fourth Far Cry game would not be much of a surprise. Ubisoft senior vice president of marketing and sales Tony Key said this summer that the commercial and critical success of Far Cry 3 has ensured a sequel.

"We're totally psyched from [Far Cry 3]. It's a great brand, and now it's got the recognition it deserves, so we're clearly going to make another one; more on that soon," he said at the time.

The most recent entry in the series was May's Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, a downloadable spinoff that has sold more than one million copies to date.
