Ubisoft's upcoming Far Cry 2 now has an official release date, with the company planning to deploy the game a little over a month from now. They are planning to release it in the U.S. on October 21st and October 24th for European countries. Like many new titles are doing, Ubisoft has seen the advantage of multi-platform readiness and will be releasing it for the PC, the 360 and the PS3 on launch day.
If you have watched the demo or been following development for the game, you'll know it certainly won't be lightweight on hardware. On top of suggesting a midrange GPU with 512MB of RAM, the game will also be one of an increasing number of titles that call for dual-core processors.
