It seems Ubisoft realized that giving a game the care it needs and time to bake, is actually a good thing. And with the success of Assassin’s Creed: Origins, they have decided to delay 3 games, 1 of which is unannounced.
Far Cry 5 will get pushed back 1 month to March 27th, while The Crew 2 is now scheduled sometime during the first fiscal of 2018-2019 instead of March 16th. One of three unannounced games is pushed back fiscal 2019-2020 instead of 2018-2019. Any guesses to what that game is?
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.Christine Burgess-Quémard, Ubisoft’s Worldwide Studios Executive Director
