Thank You.

As we approach the Thanksgiving season, we want to reflect on the last year and what the Far Cry 4 launch meant to the studio.

We are thankful to be a part of such an amazing game and franchise.

We are thankful for all the hard work from the teams that made this game happen, especially our all-star PvP team at Red Storm.

Most of all, we are thankful to all the fans that have supported us and are playing our game.

Here are some pictures from our launch celebrations over the last week.  It’s been a great ride.

Happy Thanksgiving!
