Far Cry 3 is now set to launch on November 29 in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and on December 4 in North America, Ubisoft announced today. The last release date we had for Far Cry 3 was set in September; as producer Dan Hay puts it, the extra time will be spent making the game "the best," rather than what we assume was "the almost best."

"We're taking more time to create the best possible gameplay experience," Hay says. "Far Cry 3 is a huge offering and we want every element of this insane, action-packed adventure to be of the highest possible quality for the players."
