Ubisoft Announces Delays for Two Major Titles

В Assassin's Creed геймеры нашли пикантную сцену

Ubisoft has just announced that Far Cry 5 has been delayed until March 27th.

The updated launch for Far Cry 5 is March 27, 2018 - a month from the previous date of February 27. "As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success", he added. Tune in to the Ubiblog tomorrow, December 8th at 10pm PST to get the newest look at Far Cry 5.

The reason for these delays seems to lie in ensuring Ubisoft's upcoming releases are of better quality if a note released to investors is to be believed, citing Assassin's Creed Origins as an example.

Ubisoft said it is delaying the release dates of two of its more popular games. Taking the extra time to work out any issues in Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 is a smart business decision, as players are more likely to play a complete game free of bugs and other such frustrations.

The Crew 2 comes off slightly worse, missing its intended March 16 2018 release date to a non-specific point in the future, outside of being the "first half of fiscal year 2018-2019" which could be any point before the end of September 2018. The company confirmed in a new blog post that bothFar Cry 5 and The Crew 2 have been pushed back, though at least Far Cry's isn't a huge setback.

The Group is standing by its sales target, with a further move towards a more recurring profile which provides additional visibility: higher levels of back-catalog sales and digital revenue and a lower number of units expected for the 4 AAA releases (The Crew 2, Skull & Bones and 2 unannounced franchises).

The firm also said that "one of three" unannounced titles will now release in fiscal 2019-20 instead of the 2018-19 period. Thankfully, February is only 28 days. (Additional information is specified in the most recent Ubisoft Registration Document filed on July 21, 2017 with the French Financial Markets Authority (l'Autorité des Marchés Financiers)).
