The first development details have been revealed in regards to the recently-announced, "Far Cry 4." According to a report from Only SP on May 17, Alex Hutchinson is the creative director behind the project. The same individual previously worked on "Assassin's Creed 3," which was released for multiple systems in 2012.

The third main installment of the "Assassin's Creed" series received some criticisms from the community. A few fans weren't happy with the pacing of the video game, especially at the beginning. The software product also suffered from a few glitches, hurting the experience. In addition to " Assassin's Creed 3," Alex Hutchinson also previously worked on "Army of Two," "Spore" and "The Sims."

"Far Cry 4" was announced last week for the PS4 and Xbox One next-generation systems in addition to the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The video game takes place in the Himalayan mountains, which is a different setting when compared to the previous installments of the series. The sequel is also described as an open-world experience as players will be able to use various vehicles, weapons and even animals to complete missions. A box art for the multiplatform video game from the official Twitter page of Ubisoft can be viewed near the top of this article.

The publisher is going to show off the first trailer for "Far Cry 4" at E3 2014. Although the event takes place on June 10, Ubisoft will be holding a press conference the day before. Aside from the sequel, "Assassin's Creed Unity," "Tom Clancy's The Division" and other software products should be featured at the media briefing.

"Far Cry 4" is coming out in the North American region first with an official release date of Nov. 18. The European territories are getting the same title two days later on Nov. 20. The last game in the series, "Far Cry 3," was released in 2012.
