Fans who have been anticipating the releases of Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 will have to wait a little longer. Today, Ubisoft has announced that both will be delayed. Far Cry 5, originally due out on February 27, will have to wait a month as it will now release on March 27. Thankfully, February is only 28 days. The Crew 2 has been relieved of having a definitive release date, altogether. Initially slated for March 16, it now gets grouped into the first half of Ubisoft’s 2018-19 fiscal year. Fans still have the option for signing up for the beta for The Crew 2. This can be done on the game’s website here.
The reason Ubisoft is claiming that these two games are getting delayed is to invest more time with the development. “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 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.”
