Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 Have Been Delayed

Ubisoft has learned the value in letting developers take their time.

Posted By | On 07th, Dec. 2017

Ubisoft has announced that it will be delaying two of its biggest announced games for 2018, The Crew 2 and Far Cry 5Far Cry 5‘s delay is relatively shorter, going from February 27 to March 27- just four weeks. But if you were looking forward to The Crew, the wait will be far more brutal, because the game has been delayed from its original March release date to the second or third quarter of 2018, with no further specificity. Yowza.

“[These delays] are in line with our strategic vision of developing even more engaging and higher quality experiences for gamers,” Ubisoft’s Worldwide Studios Executive director Christine Burgess-Quémard said in a statement. “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 contributed to its commercial success. Taking a similar approach, we have decided to invest additional development time in three upcoming games.”

So basically, the success of Origins, which took an extra year in development, has taught Ubisoft that it is wiser to not rush a gam to the market to meet a deadline, and that it is good to let developers finish their work before their game is shipped. Which, I mean, huh- I could have told them that like a decade ago.

Oh well. Better late than never. Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 are both going to launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
