UbiSoft has announced that the Fary Cry 5’s release date has been delayed and the open-world first-person shooter will now launch on March 27, 2018, instead of previously published data which was February 28, 2018.

The Crew 2’s release has been moved from March 16. 2018 to the first half of Ubisoft’s 2018-19 fiscal year which means it will launch between April 2018 and September 2018. There is another Ubisoft franchise game which has not been revealed yet, and it is scheduled for 2019-20.

Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, And One More Ubisoft Game Delayed

According to Ubisoft, this is because the publisher is “investing more time in the development” of these games. “This decision is in line with our strategic vision of developing even more engaging and higher quality experiences for gamers,” said Christine Burgess-Quémard, Ubisoft’s worldwide studios executive director. “Taking more time with Assassin’s Creed Origins enabled our talented development team to express their creative vision fully. As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game’s quality and largely participated in its commercial success. Taking a similar approach, we have decided to invest additional development time in three upcoming games.”

Far Cry 5 is set in Hope County, Montana. It lets allows players to create their own characters, who is a junior deputy. The main antagonists in the game are a religious cult called Eden’s Gate, which has impacted the lives of some of the characters that join the player on their mission. The cast of supporting characters includes Pastor Jerome, an African-American priest who has lost his flock to the cult; Mary May, a bartender with a penchant for flammable cocktails; and Nick Rye, a pilot who wants to create a better future for his child.

According to Ubisoft the slate of delays won’t have any adverse effect on their bottom line. In fact, they’ve raised their profitability targets for the fiscal year 2017-18, as they expect third-quarter holiday sales of €700.0 million (around $825 million), up from previous projections of €630.0 million. The company still plans to hit €2.1 billion ($2.45 billion) in sales in the fiscal year 2018-19, which is unchanged from their previous projections.

One of the significant new additions is the ability to use dogs to distract enemies and pick up weapons for you. Other classic open-world gameplay opportunities such as flying planes are also available to the player. Far Cry 5 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The Crew 2, meanwhile, features an “open-world USA” that has been “completely reshaped for motorsports.” In addition to cars, players will be able to take control of boats and planes for the sequel.

It’s good to see Ubisoft has learned from Assassin’s Creed Origins and is taking a quality-first approach to their future games. After the rough launches of games like For Honor and Ghost Recon Wildlands, changes were due.
