Ubisoft Announces Delays for Two Major Titles

Ubisoft Announces Delays for Two Major Titles

As detailed on the Ubisoft blog, Far Cry 5 has been held back a month, slipping from February 27 to a new date of March 27 2018 to 'allow the team at Ubisoft Montreal to make some additional improvements that will bring the best, most ambitious Far Cry experience in line with the team's original vision'.

Unfortunately for gamers, delays for our favorite titles are a fact of life.

"Taking more time with Assassin's Creed Origins enabled our talented development team to fully express their creative vision", Burgess-Quémard said in a press release. Tune in to the Ubiblog tomorrow, December 8th at 10pm PST to get the newest look at Far Cry 5.

According to Ubisoft, it plans to invest in additional development time for Far Cry 5, which pushes it out of a late February release and into late March. The game, originally planned for release in the 2018-19 fiscal year, will now come out in the 2019-2020 fiscal year instead. 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.

She continued on to say, "As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success".

"While we're excited to share the joys of Motornation with you as soon as possible", says Ubisoft, "we don't want to do so before the game is ready".

In a press release, Ubisoft announced that it will be investing more time into the development of these three upcoming games. It will now release on March 27th, 2018. (Additional information is specified in the most recent Ubisoft Registration Document filed on July 21, 2017 with the French Financial Markets Authority (l'Autorité des Marchés Financiers)).
