Ubisoft Announces Delays for Two Major Titles


Ubisoft Delays Three Games

The updated launch for Far Cry 5 is March 27, 2018 - a month from the previous date of February 27. However, Ubisoft now plans to release it in the first half of its next fiscal year.

"Taking more time with Assassin's Creed Origins enabled our talented development team to fully express their creative vision", Christine Burgess-Quémard said, Ubisoft's Worldwide Studios Executive Director.

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. The two big hitters we already know about haven't had massive delays, but the mysterious new game has been delayed by a whole fiscal year. As for what those titles could be remains to be seen, but it's not out of the realm of possibility that one of them could be the next Assassin's Creed, considering Ubisoft's stance on releasing their flagship title on a bi-annual schedule.

While this move may not sit well with some Sixers fans, they must take a moment and familiarize themselves with Booker. Stauskas, who joined the Sixers in 2015 in a trade from Sacramento, is averaging less than 1 point per game.

Far Cry 5 takes place in Hope County, Montana. Players can heavily customize their rides and participate in a variety of races and other activities.

In a separate statement, Ubisoft confirmed The Crew 2 developer Ivory Tower will use the extra development time 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". Another possibility is "Watch Dogs 3", but it will likely be some time before we find out. Rather it pointed to the critical and commercial success of Assassin's Creed Origins to explain the delay.
