Cliff Martinez composing unannounced sequel.

Far Cry 4 is in development, according to American composer and former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Cliff Martinez.

Speaking to Lost in the Multiplex, the musician cited the unannounced Ubisoft game as one of his current projects.

“There’s a secret mission that I’m not completely on yet, it looks like I’ll also be doing a Soderbergh TV series called The Knick, and I’m working on a video game called Far Cry 4,” he said. “So yeah, I’m popular all this week.”

In July, Ubisoft senior VP of marketing and sales Tony Key told GameSpot,”We’re totally psyched from [Far Cry 3]. It’s a great brand, and now it’s got the recognition it deserves, so we’re clearly going to make another one. More on that soon.”

Thanks, Polygon.

    Here’s what I hope we get in Far Cry 4
    -Bigger world
    -More varied things to do in that world
    -More enemy variations
    -More vehicles, including aircraft
    -More diverse missions
    -Destructible environments
    -Dynamic weather, what i mean is like a tornado or hurricane could hit at any moment. A wildfire breaks out, or a major flood. Not just some rain.
    -And lastly, better Ai, more aggressive or however you want to put it. After I took over the outposts in Far Cry 3, there was literally nobody to fight. Have them try and take back the outposts or key locations this time, and keep the world populated with enemies.

      I’d settle for a cast that isn’t made up of douchebags.

    If it turns out to be Far Cry 4: Blood Dragon 2: The Vengeance of Robo Dinosaurs then I’m all for it

    • Spicy Chicken

      Agreed. I LOVED Blood Dragon, and that Dr. Darling was clearly chugging the icky stuff!!! Just look at those eyes!!!! O_O

      You know what I’d love to see in the sequel? Blood Dragons that DO NOT give up the chase until they or you are dead, instead of disappearing once you get to a certain distance. Or if you get into the water, they’d stay there for a LONG while, sniffing for BLOOD, unless distracted by some poor whelp foolish enough to get close. Once I cleared all the garrisons, that was the only aspect of the game I didn’t like, I wanted them to be more like true predators, much like their ‘Apex’ ancestors. Other than though, just give me more of the same (more garrisons, bigger map etc., the ability to visit EVERYTHING after you clear the main game) and I’m happy. ^_^

        more exotic weapons would also be nice. Like, I dunno, a stake shotgun, a chainsaw sword, a poison gas launcher. I really miss when FPS’s had really WEIRD weapons

        • Spicy Chicken

          Agreed, I remember Turok had some cool weapons. Speaking of swords, how about a ‘lazer sword’ as well? One that can cut an enemy in two but quietly, so as to be a potential stealth weapon? It’s weird, I’ve never been into ‘stealthy’ games as such, but I loved sneaking about in Blood Dragon! Ah who am I kidding, I still do. :P

          • Aiddon

            indeed; I also miss secondary fire functions. Pretty much the most creative weapons I’ve from shooters as of late is the Dead Space series with javelin guns, flame throwers, rivet guns, and a BUZZ SAW. Another Blood Dragon would be a perfect excuse to go wacky with weapons.

    As godawful a film Drive was, the soundtrack was a highlight so I’m sure he’ll do a good job here too.

    • Spicy Chicken

      Hmm… You’re only the second person I know of that’s not liked the film. Is it because you expected an action film? I actually saw it having not viewed any trailers and loved it, but afterwards saw the trailers (or main trailer I should say) and was super confused as to the misleading message they were putting out with that, so I can see how it would be a huge disappointment if you saw that, expected more of the same, then saw the film.

      At the very least, did you like the first sequence (the getaway with Kavinsky’s Nightcall playing at the end of it?)

      • McPoo

        Tbh I didn’t know what to expect, other than the fact the UK Gamefaqs board had hyped the movie up tremendously (which probably didn’t help).

        It was just everything about it I couldn’t stand. That style of if ok where the main character prefers to stare moodily as opposed to converse. I’ve nothing against a quiet protagonist., but I’m sure there were points where he was asked direct questions and he just wasn’t responding. It did nothing for his character and just made me actively dislike him.

        I think the biggest thing apart from that is that it was a dull story told poorly. I only watched it about 12 months ago and I genuine can’t remember anything about it other than the odd bit with Joan from Mad Men in (can’t for the life of me remember her name). The opening sequence you refer to, I remember the music being quite tense but not matching the scene, which again felt dull and underwhelming.

        I’m sure there are good arguments to be made for it being a good film, but personally I’d put it up there as one of the worst films I’ve seen. It wasn’t bad in a way that could be funny or entertaining, it was just plain bad.

        • Spicy Chicken

          But he did answer everything… WITH HIS EYES!!! O_O

          Seriously though, thanks for the comprehensive reply. At least you liked the soundtrack so that’s something. ^_^

          Worst film I ever saw, well, not really a film, but an ‘educational’ animation called ‘When the Wind Blows’ (that sure as hell felt as long as any film), seriously the most depressing thing I’ve ever seen, and not in a cool and informative way, like Grave of the Fireflies. No, just really, REALLY depressing. Plus we were made to watch it as part of our ‘education’. They could have just told us that nuclear war is a horrible thing and if you die fast you’re lucky, but no, they had to teach us the HARD WAY… >_>

          • McPoo

            Might have a look on YouTube for that, just out of curiosity :p

            You’re most welcome for the response, I wasn’t sure how well I’d articulated my opinion, tbh!

            Have you seen the more recent film by the same guy? Only God Forgives, I think it’s called. I’ve heard Gosling only says about 100 words in that one >_>
