Far Cry 5 And The Crew 2 Delayed, Confirms Ubisoft

Ubisoft announced today that it will be delaying three 2018 games: Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and a third unannounced franchise game.

The new launch date for Far Cry 5 is March 27, 2018.

Finally, a previously-disclosed but completely unannounced game, which has now been delayed from Fiscal Year 2018-2019 to the Fiscal 2019-2020 year (April 1, 2019, to March 31, 2020).

"This decision is in line with our strategic vision of developing even more engaging and higher quality experiences for gamers", Christine Burgess-Quémard, Ubisoft's Worldwide Studios Executive Director, said in the release. "As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success", he added.

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". Fortunately, the delay for Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 seems to be the former rather than the latter.

Considering the state Far Cry 5 was in when we checked it out at IGX 2017, this doesn't come as a surprise. That's been revised from February 27, 2018. Alain Martinez, Chief Financial Officer, talked about the upward trajectory, "Our back-catalog performance throughout November followed the same excellent trends as in the first half of the year and sales for Assassin's Creed Origins continued their positive launch trajectory". The open-world first-person shooting game where users will be trying to free a fictional Montana town from the clutches of a overzealous religious cult, will be now be released on March 28. If recent history is any indication, the wait will be more than worth it.
