Ubisoft executive Christine Burgess-Quémard said in a statement it will be investing "additional development time" in those games, as it needed more time to develop the recently released Assassin's Creed's Origins.
Far Cry 5 will only be delayed by one month, whereas the entire Assassin's Creed franchise was given a year off after a couple of underwhelming releases. Tune in to the Ubiblog tomorrow, December 8th at 10pm PST to get the newest look at Far Cry 5.
Slightly disappointing news coming out of Ubisoft, as it announces that three of its upcoming games are to suffer delays: Far Cry 5, The Crew 2 and an as-yet-unannounced third game. As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success.
The reason for these delays seems to lie in ensuring Ubisoft's upcoming releases are of better quality if a note released to investors is to be believed, citing Assassin's Creed Origins as an example. The Crew 2 will launch in the first half of the company's next fiscal year, which starts in April of 2018. Less details about The Crew 2 have been released, but we can expect the ability to race cars, boats, and airplanes - switching between them at will during the same game session. "Taking a similar approach, we have chose to invest additional development time in three upcoming games", said Christine Burgess-Quémard, Ubisoft's Worldwide Studios Executive Director. Thankfully, February is only 28 days. The game was slated for a February 27 release date, but that is no longer the case. You can check out the most recent trailer for it down below.
