Montreal will lead development on next-gen set in the Himilayas

Ubisoft has announced that five of its studios will be working together to develop Far Cry 4, the latest in the publisher's best-selling open world shooter series.

Ubisoft Montreal will take the lead on the title, which will be set in Kyrat, a wild region of the Himalayas in which players will be pitted against the self-appointed king.

Other studios involved include the nearby Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Shanghai, Ubisoft Kiev and the Ubisoft-owned Red Storm Entertainment.

The game is due for Xbox One, PS4, PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on November 21st and will be detailed further during Ubisoft's E3 briefing.

Expect another vast open world that will allow gamers to approach situations however they see fit, with not too many deviations from the formula seen in the hugely popular and best-selling 2012 shooter Far Cry 3.
