Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, unannounced game delayed by Ubisoft

Ubisoft Delays Three Games

Ubisoft delays The Crew 2, Far Cry 5, and unannounced game to make them better

Far Cry 5 was due to release on February 27th 2018 but will now land a month later on March 27th instead.

In somewhat surprising news (especially on the eve of The Game Awards - how coincidental), Ubisoft have revealed that Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and a previously unannounced title have been pushed back.

Finally, an unannounced game has been delayed until sometime between 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020. Now we know one of the reasons for this.

The Witness was also selected as Game of the Year on the Mac App Store, where Aurora HDR 2018 won in the app category. Snapchat's 2016 crown was snatched from them, but only just, by the popular Bitmooji app, which is owned by Snap.

In a press release, Ubisoft Worldwide Studios Executive Director Christine Burgress-Quémard likened the situation to its decision to stop releasing "Assassin's Creed" annually, which led to that series taking 2016 off before "Assassin's Creed Origins" launched at the end of October. Fans still have the option for signing up for the beta for The Crew 2.

In a separate statement, Ubisoft confirmed The Crew 2 developer Ivory Tower will use the extra development time to "perform additional playtests, gather player feedback, and continue working towards delivering an ambitious open-world racing experience that meets the team's and our players' expectations".

In The Crew 2, players will be able to enjoy the widest range of vehicles. Today, Ubisoft has announced that both will be delayed. The original game sold very well for Ubisoft. The game doesn't necessarily innovate or depart significantly from the tried-and-tested Assassin's Creed formula, but it boasts a level of polish and care that make it one of the best titles the franchise has ever produced. This is an approach, Ubisoft notes, the company took with past titles like Assassin's Creed Origins.
