Ubisoft Delays Three Games

Ubisoft Delays Three Games

Slightly disappointing news coming out of Ubisoft, as it announces that three of its upcoming games are to suffer delays: Far Cry 5, The Crew 2 and an as-yet-unannounced third game. However, Ubisoft now plans to release it in the first half of its next fiscal year.

Ubisoft executive Christine Burgess-Quémard said in a statement it will be investing "additional development time" in those games, as it needed more time to develop the recently released Assassin's Creed's Origins. As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success.

Ubisoft says that the additional development time will allow it "to continue running test phases and allow as many of you as possible to get hands-on with the game".


Here's an (updated) look at everything we know about Far Cry 5. It doesn't seem like we'll be waiting too much longer, but the extra time gives the companies the flexibility they need to make the titles a polished experience. Meanwhile, The Crew 2 will now be released sometime in the first half of the 2018-2019 fiscal year rather than on March 16, 2018.

Considering the state Far Cry 5 was in when we checked it out at IGX 2017, this doesn't come as a surprise. Thanks to Assassin's Creed Origins' success, Ubisoft has chose to take what they learned from allowing their developers more time with a game and have applied it to their upcoming games.

Today, Ubisoft has announced that it has made a decision to delay the release dates of two of its most anticipated titles coming next year. Thankfully, February is only 28 days. If recent history is any indication, the wait will be more than worth it.
