[Update] Ubisoft Is Not Teasing Something Related To Far Cry 3

Update (05/03/17 at 1:10 p.m.): We've heard back from Ubisoft PR, who has clarified to us that this was simply a "throwback post" and not a tease for anything. 

Ubisoft France's Instagram and Facebook account have shared an image that looks strikingly similar to Rook Island, the setting of Far Cry 3. It's been nearly five years since the game released, though it's unclear exactly what Ubisoft's intentions surrounding the tease are.

A caption beside the photo, written in French, translates to: "An island that we never really left. Does that remind you of something?" You can view the image below, or check out the Instagram link at the bottom of this page.

We have reached out to Ubisoft for further comment. The latest installment to the series, Far Cry Primal, came out last year. Read our review here.

Our Take
Considering its cryptic nature, it is difficult to pinpoint what the motive is behind this tease. It could be a promotion coming up to celebrate the game's fifth anniversary, maybe a remaster, or a new installment in the Far Cry series that returns to the third game's Rook Island.
