The Far Cry Games We Never Got

Far Cry 2 is a high-powered shooter for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. That's not all, apparently!

According to the resume of Ubisoft's Philippe Baude, there was a version of Far Cry 2 in the works for the PSP and the Wii in late 2006 and early 2007, but the games were cancelled.

Far Cry 2 was the sequel to Far Cry, which was developed by Crytek. There was a Far Cry title released for the Wii, 2006's Far Cry: Vengeance (above). It looked like a dog's breakfast.


Ubisoft is currently working on a new Far Cry for 2012, which is cleverly titled Far Cry 3.

From my memory, both the Wii and PSP can look better than that...but it was canceled so it would have been way off being finished.
