Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 Delayed

Screen-Shot

The third delay is for "one of the three unannounced franchise games initially planned for release in Fiscal 2018-19", i.e. somewhere between April 2018 and March 2019.

The remaining two titles have undetermined release dates, but The Crew 2 will come out on the first half of the company's 2018-19 fiscal year and the new mystery title will launch in the 2019-20 year once it's revealed.

More time for developers had "a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success", according to the executive.

In a press release, Ubisoft announced that it will be investing more time into the development of these three upcoming games.


The Crew 2 is notably more ambitious than its predecessor (which also saw pre-launch delays), adding powerboats and stunt racing airplanes to the original's more traditional roster of road cars, off-road buggies and motorbikes. Turns out, that's not the only game that needs some extra time for polish. "Far Cry 5" was supposed to launch on February 27, but was delayed exactly a month, to March 27.

Ubisoft's sales in November for Assassin's Creed Origins as well as older titles put it in a favorable position for announcing the delays. We've just had an Assassin's Creed so it's not that, so maybe Watch Dogs 3, or The Division 2.

Far Cry 5 takes place in Hope County, Montana.

Ubisoft has a strong 2017, finding success in both new titles (Assassin's Creed: Origins) and updating old ones (Rainbow Six Siege), but 2018 already seems to off to a rocky start regarding its release schedule. You can check out the most recent trailer for it down below.
