The creative team for the Far Cry series is still coming together and finding their vision, but a six-episode order has been signed off on for a Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon series called Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix — also known as the most 80s thing I’ve ever heard. The series has been described as “an original anime featuring alter egos of Ubisoft characters in a highly-referenced homage to the early 80s.”
In addition to being a standalone piece of content for 2013’s Far Cry 3, Blood Dragon has also featured within the Trials universe in their spin-off title Trials of the Blood Dragon.
Variety has reported that Bobbypills is the production studio behind the series with Adi Shankar attached as creator and executive producer.
