According to IGN’s sources within Ubisoft, Alex Hutchinson, the creative director behind Assassin’s Creed 3, is currently heading Far Cry 4.

The reported creative director of the game, Alex Hutchinson, has previously worked on Army of Two, The Sims, The Urbz, and Spore as well as Assassin’s Creed 3. Ubisoft, however, declined to comment when approached by IGN with the story. When we hear more on Far Cry 4, we will keep you updated. While we wait, however, you can check out “The Features We Hope To See In Far Cry 4” article written up by Nathan Hughes, here on OnlySP.

Set in an exotic Himalayan landscape called Kyrat, Far Cry 4 will have your character set forth in a place with teeming wildlife and perilous danger which is ruled by a self-made tyrannical king.

Far Cry 4 is scheduled to release on the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on November 18th for North America and November 20th for Europe.

    1. I never played AC3, although I’m aware of its “divisiveness” among AC fans. Should I be worried? :|

      1. Nevermind, I’m gonna try the game in a few hours.

        1. Almost 3 hours in, and I don’t see what’s so bad about this game, and that’s coming from someone that hates linear/by-the-numbers gameplay sequences and long cutscenes. :P

          Best moment: I accidentally ran into a guard, he pushed me back making me fall off the pier.


          1. You haven’t hated it yet, therefore it’s going to be your game of the year of 2012, easy.

      2. AC3 is a fine game. It has great tree running, decent characters and is definitely a unique tale on the Revolution. However, as an Assassins Creed game, it suffers from a lack of height with buildings and a lot of features were badly explained, making it feel like the developers crammed as much as possible in without really explaining it all. Also, the game had a huge amount of bugs when I played it on the release date from never ending chases to clipping through the ground.

        AC3 was decent but man, was it overhyped.

    2. Hopefully the director has learned from the game’s mistakes. Quite a lot of AC3 was spread too thin, with a lot of poorly explained elements (recruiting assassins, the tunnel network) and bad controls. I hope it won’t translate over to Far Cry 4.
