Far Cry


 

Delays have recently plagued three different Ubisoft titles. The first two are Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2, but the third is one of the publisher’s titles that has yet to be announced.

In a post on the official UbiBlog, the publisher announced that Far Cry 5 would be pushed one month, from its February 27th release date to March 27th. The reason given for the small delay is simply that it will allow the team to “make some additional improvements.” Ubisoft announced The Crew 2‘s delay in the same blog post, pushing its original March 16th release date to an undetermined date sometime in the first half of the company’s next fiscal year (April 1st, 2018, to September 30th, 2018) for the sake of additional playtesting.

The third title to be delayed is one of the publisher’s three currently unannounced titles, which is now slated to release in the 2019-2020 fiscal year, instead of the 2018-2019 fiscal year in which it was originally planned. The overall reason given by Ubisoft for this delay triple-threat is that it is “investing more time” into each game.

“This decision is in line with our strategic vision of developing even more engaging and higher quality experiences for gamers,” Ubisoft’s Worldwide Studios Executive Director Christine Burgess-Quémard explained in a press release. “Taking more time with Assassin’s Creed Origins enabled our talented development team to fully express their creative vision. As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game’s quality and largely participated to its commercial success. Taking a similar approach, we have decided to invest additional development time in three upcoming games.”

The second two games were hit by fairly significant delays, but luckily, one month longer shouldn’t be too bad of a wait for Far Cry 5. Fans can tide themselves over with the game’s recent developer diary, and more new content from the game is dropping tomorrow, December 8th, after the PlayStation Experience.

Ubisoft delays three big games—one we hadn’t heard about before

In the interest of giving its dev teams more time, Ubisoft has pushed back Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and more.
