Ubisoft Delays Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and a Third Game

A post on UbiBlog indicates neither Far Cry 5 nor The Crew 2 will come out on time. The next Far Cry game was expected on February 27th, but is now due exactly a month later on March 27th. They urge those interested in the next installment in the shooter series to return tomorrow for a look at the game: "Tune in to the Ubiblog tomorrow, December 8th at 10pm PST to get the newest look at Far Cry 5." Meanwhile, The Crew 2 was planned for release on March 16th, but is now due "in the first half of our next fiscal year," so they are going from a precise date to a six month Window that requires a decoder ring. Their fiscal year ends on March 31st, so this indicates The Crew 2 is now due between April 1 and September 30 2018. And while they are on a roll, they also offer this press release covering those two games and adding word that a third "franchise" game that they are yet to announce is going to miss a release window they likewise never announced. Word is, "In addition, one of the three unannounced franchise games initially planned for release in Fiscal 2018-19 now will be released in Fiscal 2019-20." Here's word:

Today, Ubisoft announced it is investing more time in the development of three upcoming games. Far Cry® 5 is now slated for release on March 27, 2018 (instead of February 27, 2018) and The Crew® 2 will come out in the first half of Fiscal 2018-19 (rather than on March 16, 2018). In addition, one of the three unannounced franchise games initially planned for release in Fiscal 2018-19 now will be released in Fiscal 2019-20.

Christine Burgess-Quémard, Ubisoft’s Worldwide Studios Executive Director, said, "This decision is in line with our strategic vision of developing even more engaging and higher quality experiences for gamers. 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."
