Ubisoft Delay Far Cry 5 And The Crew 2

Ubisoft Giving Away Assasin’s Creed IV Black Flag and World in Conflict for Free

First, Far Cry 5 has been pushed back by one month, from 27 February 2018 to 27 March 2018.

Far Cry 5 is now expected to release on March 27, 2018, while The Crew 2 will arrive within the first half of the 2018 fiscal year. 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. "Assassin's Creed Origins" received positive reviews and wildly outsold the previous game in the series, "Assassin's Creed Syndicate".

The reason for these three delays is due to the commercial success Ubisoft saw commercially with Assassin's Creed Origins following its longer development time, which "enabled [their] development team to fully express their creative vision".

'Taking a similar approach, we have made a decision to invest additional development time in three upcoming games'.

The release of the upcoming open-world racing game The Crew 2 has been postponed, publisher Ubisoft has confirmed. The game world has been taken over by a hyper-religious and violent cult that has seeped its way into every local institution in the game's rural America setting.

Despite the delay announcement, registrations for The Crew 2's beta are still open on the official The Crew 2 website. The Crew 2 expands the original game to include air and sea maps in a fictional version of the United States called Motornation.

In a brief blog post today, Ubisoft announced the delay of the two titles mentioned above. Some folks may look at this being bad news while other look at it as being good news, but the truth behind it all is that both games will not release within their originally announced launch windows.
