Ubisoft has just officially announced the existence of Far Cry 4 and that it will be available November 18 in the US and November 20 in the EMEA territories for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.

“Following the success of Far Cry 3, we wanted to take the franchise to the next level and create a game that will surprise players and exceed fans’ expectations,” said Dan Hay, Executive Producer. “Given the unique setting, we feel Far Cry 4 will stand out as a top first-person shooter and we’re eager to reveal more about the game in the coming months.”
