Publisher Ubisoft have announced delays to two of its most anticipated games: Far Cry 5 & The Crew 2.
Far Cry 5, which was planned to come out on February 27th 2018, has been pushed back until March 27. The Crew 2, which was originally slated for March 16, 2018, is now expected to be available between April and September.
In regards to The Crew 2; the development team stated “Our vision for The Crew 2 has always been ambitious; to really surprise players by pushing the boundaries of the open-world racing genre to the limit. The feedback we’ve received so far from fans and press alike has been hugely encouraging, and we’re grateful beyond words for your continued trust and support,”
“In order to truly stand by our promise, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release date to between April/September 2018. While we’re excited to share the joys of Motornation with you as soon as possible, we don’t want to do so before the game is ready.”
Far Cry 5 on the other hand, just had an update on the Ubiblog which says “the extra time will allow the team at Ubisoft Montreal to make some additional improvements that will bring the best, most ambitious Far Cry experience in line with the team’s original vision.”
A one-month delay of Far Cry 5 isn’t all that bad if it gives the team time to iron out any bugs. However with the Crew 2 being pushed back by possibly 6 months is evidence enough that I personally would not be shocked to see it be pushed back longer, perhaps into the 2018 Christmas season.
Let us know in the comments your thoughts on these delays.
