Far Cry 5 has been delayed. A press release from Ubisoft says that the game’s release will be pushed back by one month.
Here’s an (updated) look at everything we know about Far Cry 5.
Far Cry 5 was originally slated for release on February 27, 2018, but Ubisoft have announced that they will be “investing more time in the development of three upcoming games.” Far Cry’s release date has been pushed back to March 27, while The Crew 2 has been delayed to “the first half of Fiscal 2018-19,” despite an initial release date of March 16. The third game is an as-yet-unannounced title which was due to be released in the 2018/19 fiscal year, but will now come out in the 2019/20 financial year instead.
Ubisoft’s worldwide studios executive director Christine Burgess-Quémard says “This decision is in line with our strategic vision of developing even more engaging and higher quality experiences for gamers.”
“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 largely participated to its commercial success. Taking a similar approach, we have decided to invest additional development time in three upcoming games.”
