UK Getting "Far Cry Classic" HD Redux, Could US Be Far Behind?

UK Getting "Far Cry Classic" HD Redux, Could US Be Far Behind?

Far Cry is big business for Ubisoft, so it seems like a given that the recently announced Far Cry Classic, an HD remake of the original Far Cry, would be likely to hit US shores. Announced as part of a PAL-only Far Cry: The Wild Expedition collection for the PS3 and Xbox 360, Far Cry Classic is getting a stand-alone digital release on both UK PSN and XBLA. No word yet on whether or not this will come stateside, but c'mon, it's Far Cry – it seems very unlikely that Ubisoft would just omit what to many players would be a heretofore unseen experience from the North American marketplace.

At any rate, playing through the original Far Cry running on what's assumedly some modified version of the sumptuous Far Cry 3 engine would be pretty great, especially given that its existence has just appeared as if from nowhere. More as it develops.
