'Far Cry 5' And 'The Crew 2' Release Date Delayed

Ubisoft Delays Three Games

Let's talk about Far Cry 5, which will release in the market not before March 27 (instead of February 27) and The Crew 2, whose debut slips by the first half of the next fiscal year (before September 30, 2018).

The Crew 2 - formerly March 16, 2018. The game was originally meant to hit shelves this February, however the team needed a bit more time in order to further polish it.

Saying that, though, if this extra production time results in Boomer digging up loot crates for players, I will take that back. "Taking more time with Assassin's Creed Origins enabled our talented development team to fully express their creative vision".

In the announcement, Ubisoft's Worldwide Studios Executive Director Christine Burgess-Quémard defended the delays, stating the extra development was an investment, even citing the success of Assassin's Creed: Origins use of an extra year. And that unannounced game, which is said to be one of three unannounced franchise titles, has been pushed to fiscal 2019-20.

In a brief blog post today, Ubisoft announced the delay of the two titles mentioned above.

Far Cry 5 is set in a locale far removed from the previous releases. When they do eventually arrive, we'll see both games launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and PC.

"Our vision for The Crew 2 has always been ambitious; to really surprise players by pushing the boundaries of the open-world racing genre to the limit".

Ubisoft says that the additional development time will allow it "to continue running test phases and allow as many of you as possible to get hands-on with the game".
