What's more interesting, is that both sites claim the title is coming in 2010. Ubisoft has previously said that it's developing the franchise's third installment, but nothing has been officially unveiled. You'd think they would have said something by now if a holiday launch was planned -- especially with E3 and Gamescom recently passing. Some speculate the developer is planning a blowout for the Tokyo Game Show next month.
The stores could also just be speculating it's coming this year in an effort to score a few early sales. One makes it clear that "price, product description and release dates are tentative and subject to change." Far Cry 3 is set in Africa again, but with an even larger world and a completely updated Dunia engine. The listing mentions that an Internet connection is required to play the game, which presumably means Ubisoft's DRM is present.
