Today, Ubisoft has announced that it has decided to delay the release dates of two of its most anticipated titles coming next year. Let’s talk about Far Cry 5, which will release in the market not before March 27 (instead of February 27) and The Crew 2, whose debut slips by the first half of the next fiscal year (before September 30, 2018).
Below are the two short messages published by Ubisoft to justify the decision to delay the two titles.
Far Cry 5
For Far Cry 5, the extra time will 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. We’re excited for fans to join the Resistance in Hope County, Montana against the Project at Eden’s Gate cult. Tune in to the Ubiblog tomorrow, December 8th at 10 p.m. PST to get the newest look at Far Cry 5.
The Crew 2
Meanwhile, The Crew 2 development team at Ivory Tower will use the next several months to perform additional playtests, gather player feedback, and continue working towards delivering an ambitious open-world racing experience that meets the team’s and our players’ expectations.
Far Cry 5 is now expected to release on March 27, 2018, while The Crew 2 will arrive within the first half of the 2018 fiscal year. Both titles are expected to launch on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
In addition to The Crew 2 and Skull & Bones, for the fiscal year 2018-2019 Ubisoft plans to launch 2 AAA production games not yet announced.
