Far Cry 5, The Crew 2 Delayed

Far Cry 5 - Gamers Heroes
Ubisoft announced today that it is investing more time in the development of three of their upcoming games.

Far Cry 5 is now slated for release on March 27, 2018 (instead of February 27, 2018), and The Crew 2 will now come out in the first half of Fiscal 2018-19 (rather than on March 16, 2018). In addition, one of the three unannounced franchise games initially planned for release in Fiscal 2018-19 now will be released in Fiscal 2019-20.

According to Christine Burgess-Quémard, Ubisoft’s Worldwide Studios Executive Director:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“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.”[/testimonials]
