Ubisoft delays three games including Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2

Publisher puts a brave face on, saying it will mean the games are even better.

Ubisoft has announced that it is delaying the release of three games: Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and an unannounced title.

Far Cry 5 was originally due out on February 27 2018, but we'll now have to wait until March 27 to play it. The Crew 2 was previously down for March 16, but instead we're going to see it in the second quarter of 2018.

Finally, the third game was originally due in fiscal 2018-19, but has been kicked back until the following financial year. Ubisoft presumably has to talk about this one, even though we know nothing about it, because investors had previously been told it was in development.

"The 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-Quémardctor explained.

"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.”
