If you've yet to dive into the world of Far Cry, you might want to wait awhile before you go tracking down the older games in the series. That's due to new whispers of an Ultimate Far Cry bundle, which may pack some or all of the games in the Far Cry series together in one retail offering. A listing for the bundle was spotted on UK retailer GAME's website, though at the moment, details are few and far between.
To say that is actually being generous, because aside from the price and the title of the bundle, we know nothing about it. GAME will apparently be offering the Ultimate Far Cry bundle for £39.99 on PS3 and Xbox 360, while PC gamers will enjoy a price of £29.99. Those equate to right around $64 USD and $48 USD respectively, which is very close to the price you'd expect to pay for new console and PC releases.
Though it's impossible to be sure at the moment, those prices suggest that Far Cry 3 will be included in the Ultimate Far Cry pack. Of course, it wouldn't really be an "Ultimate" bundle if it didn't include all of the games in the series, but given the fact that Far Cry 3 only launched in December, it would be understandable if Ubisoft wanted to leave it out of the offer. In any case, the game listing says it'll be out sometime this year, but doesn't get any more specific than that.
These early retailer listings are generally a pretty good way of determining what a company is plotting, so it sure does seem like Ubisoft has an Ultimate Far Cry pack incoming. We'll have to wait for official confirmation from the publisher, but considering the title is already listed on GAME's website, it might not be much longer before we have an announcement.
