    Ubisoft owns the FarCry lincense and the FarCry version of CryEngine. That is why Crytek developed CryEngine 2 (heavily overhauled CryEngine) and switched to Crysis.

    Unless they have done a deal with Crytek FarCry2 will not be using the same engine as Crysis.

    Sounds good! FarCry 1 was awesome, especially with its jungle environments. Hopefully FarCry 2 will have some of those environments and will be as good if not better then FarCry 1!.

    Yeah, I just read somewhere that FarCry 2 will be using CryEngine 1, so Crysis still seems to be the best looking shooter to date. :thumbup: (Crysis pwns FC2... :tongue: )

    IMHO, there's ZERO point in releasing Far Cry 2 after Crysis, if it's not going to be better... i think we should hold onto our hats before assuming it's going to suck. Would be financial suicide and idiocy for Ubisoft to think otherwise...

    As you pointed out, FarCry 2 will be developed and distributed by Ubisoft themselves as they now own the FarCry name so it's completely seperate from Crytek the original developers so this will be a seperate game in it's own right.
    I think it's a good thing to announce it with all hype with Crysis as it will certainly be picked up by all the Crysis fans.

    Are you kidding me..

    Why are they wasting their time? This game should already be out, otherwise make use of a better engine !

    You really think they will be using a stock version of the far cry engine? CryEngine 2 is based on CryEngine 1, it wasn't built from scratch so why shouldn't ubisofts updated version be just as impressive?
