Ubisoft had some bad news to deliver today. The publisher has delayed the release dates for two of their upcoming titles: Far Cry 5
and The Crew 2
Previously scheduled to release in February, Far Cry 5
has been delayed for a month. This is to "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". The game will now be released on March 27th, 2018. In the meantime, the team will be showing more of the game tomorrow at 10PM PST, so keep your eyes peeled to TA for the latest news.
The news is slightly worse for The Crew 2
. Previously scheduled to release in March, this game has now been delayed to the first half of fiscal year 19. This translates to somewhere between the beginning of April and the end of September 2018. Over the next few months, Ivory Tower will "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".
Is this good news or has this scuppered your plans for the start of the new year?
