Ubisoft delays Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and an unannounced game

Unfortunately for gamers, delays for our favorite titles are a fact of life.

Each week Ubisoft will announce a new theme for entries - the first is Wild Life - and the contest will run from today through to January 10, 2018.

Ubisoft said it is delaying the release dates of two of its more popular games. "As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success", Burgess-Quémard said.

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. Another possibility is "Watch Dogs 3", but it will likely be some time before we find out.

Jordan Peele made quite the splash in polemical social horror with his brilliantly conceived and executed blockbuster Get Out . Simon Kinberg added his thoughts by declaring, " The Twilight Zone was a touchstone in my life".

While all this sales jargon may look confusing, the important thing to takeaway here is that Ubisoft is strategically moving these games in order to give them more time to develop and generate more sales for their bottom line.

"Ambitious" is a pretty good word to describe Far Cry 5. Players will battle against a violent, anti-government religious sect in the United States. When they do eventually arrive, we'll see both games launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and PC.

Far Cry 5 will now release on March 27th, 2018, one month later than its previously detailed February 27th, 2018 release.

The third game, which is still unannounced, was originally planned for Fiscal 2018-2019, but will now be released in Fiscal 2019-2020. If recent history is any indication, the wait will be more than worth it.
