Ubisoft announced it is investing more time in the development of three upcoming games, which means that these three games will be delayed in order to deliver a higher quality experience. These games three are Far Cry 5, The Crew 2 and one of the three unannounced franchise games initially planned for release before March 2019.
Far Cry 5, which was previously going to launch on the 27th of February, is now slated for release on the 27th of March. Instead of releasing on the 16th of March, The Crew 2 will now come out in the first half of Fiscal 2018-19, which means that it will launch sometime between April 1st and September 30th. As for the unannounced title, it will now will be released in Fiscal 2019-20.
This decision is in line with our strategic vision of developing even more engaging and higher quality experiences for gamers. Taking more time with Assassin’s Creed Origins enabled our talented development team to fully express their creative vision. As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game’s quality and largely participated to its commercial success. Taking a similar approach, we have decided to invest additional development time in three upcoming games.
This announcement is being made against a particularly favourable backdrop for Ubisoft, with the month of November seeing continued excellent sales momentum both for back-catalog and new releases.
