Ubisoft appear to be lining up the release of a new XBLA game in the Far Cry franchise known as Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

The title was listed on Brazil’s video game classification site as a first person shooter.

Maybe this is what Far Cry 3 lead writer Jeffrey Yohalem is working on. In an interview with Joystiq he said players didn’t want to abandon the world and characters of Far Cry 3 yet and admitted to working on something “surprising”.

“Yes. I’m working on something now that will be surprising, I think, when it’s announced. But it definitely is a ‘strike while the iron’s hot’ thing, and we’ll see.”

Well known XBLA newshound lifelower also came across some cover art for a digital release, suggesting this will launch on XBLA. Although I must say the artwork looks more like a fighting game.


We’ll keep you updated on this and hopefully we’ll have official word from Ubisoft.
