Far Cry 5, originally scheduled for February 27, will now release on March 27.
Unfortunately for gamers, delays for our favorite titles are a fact of life.
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.
Announced in a press release sent to Glixel this morning, Ubisoft said it would be "investing more time" into each of the games, though it didn't elaborate much further on why they were delayed.
Delays for Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 have been handed down by Ubisoft. As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success.
Finally, a previously-disclosed but completely unannounced game, which has now been delayed from Fiscal Year 2018-2019 to the Fiscal 2019-2020 year (April 1, 2019, to March 31, 2020).
"While we're excited to share the joys of Motornation with you as soon as possible", says Ubisoft, "we don't want to do so before the game is ready". If the company was on track for a February release, these last 30 days can be used for finishing touches.
The Crew 2 comes off slightly worse, missing its intended March 16 2018 release date to a non-specific point in the future, outside of being the "first half of fiscal year 2018-2019" which could be any point before the end of September 2018. If recent history is any indication, the wait will be more than worth it.
