Far Cry 3 Underway?

The rumor-oriented "Spy" column in the latest print issue of PC Gamer has an unconfirmed report that Far Cry 3 is currently in development at Ubisoft Montreal under the leadership of Josh Mosqueira, formerly of Relic Entertainment. Thanks Big Download, where they reference previous rumors that a third installment in the shooter series will return to the African setting of Far Cry 2.

You do realize that many weapons in third world countries are poorly maintained and thats why they jam, right? Likewise if people have been expending ammo for 5 minutes then I would expect them to have little or none left when you go to loot their corpse. What you need is a non-realism mode or lower difficulty. I thought the little touches like that were what set Far Cry 2 apart from any other shooter on the market.
Of course they don't jam until you pick one up, and the bad guys will have 5 bullets on them whether they shot at you for 5 minutes, or you sniped them before they ever saw you. Really, don't try to defend this crap. It's ridiculous.

It's actually the opposite of lazy, it takes a lot more work in development. As I said, I think what you need is a different type of shooter, Far Cry 2 wasn't a shooter that featured streamlined gameplay mechanics.
It's not about streamlining, it's about it making no fucking sense at all! It certainly was lazy. We're not complaining that there was a gun decay mechanic, or limited ammo mechanic in the game. We're complaining about the half-assed way they implemented them. I don't want a streamlined shooter. If I wanted that, I'd go play fucking Halo or some other retarded game like that.

I want them to finish the damn game and implement these features in a way that makes sense and is actually fun! They made a great-looking game, but forgot to add actual, fun gameplay. The repetitive nature of the missions, the maddening respawning, the lack of non-hostile AI, it just all reeks of a rushed game that they didn't bother to finish.
