Ubisoft delays Far Cry 5, The Crew 2 and another unannounced title

However, Ubisoft now plans to release it in the first half of its next fiscal year.

Far Cry 5 has been delayed because "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", Ubisoft stated in a blog post.

Remembering Montreal and indigenous women
Women who lost their lives to violence were remembered at city hall with music, candles and a moment of silence. My Sisters' Place will host a gathering Wednesday to commemorate the 28th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.


Ubisoft's Worldwide Studios Executive Director Christine Burgess-Quémard issued an official statement regarding the delays, saying the extra time will be used to deliver a more "engaging" gaming experience. While large game studios generally stick to deadlines, unforeseen circumstances and the desire for more polish often see big titles pushed back - Sometimes by a little bit, and occasionally by a lot. Now we know one of the reasons for this.

Ubisoft has had a strong 2017, with multiplayer hits like "Rainbow Six: Siege" continuing to hold players' attention while mostly single-player titles like "Assassin's Creed Origins" and "Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle" have achieved financial and critical success alike.

Ubisoft has confirmed that the new release date for Far Cry 5 is now March 27th, 2018. There is no clue as to what the game is, but it seems to imply a sequel to an existing game so... maybe Watch Dogs or Assassin's Creed. In other words, the delay of Far Cry 5 has angered some gamers that were counting the days until its release.

Ubisoft's sales in November for Assassin's Creed Origins as well as older titles put it in a favorable position for announcing the delays.

"Player feedback and its integration remain integral to attaining our vision, and the development team is excited by the prospect of working further with our incredible community", it said. If the company was on track for a February release, these last 30 days can be used for finishing touches.
