Ubisoft has officially confirmed today that two of their highly anticipated titles have seen a delay. The company confirmed in a new blog post that both Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 have been pushed back, though at least Far Cry's isn't a huge setback.
"Far Cry 5 will now launch on March 27 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC while The Crew 2 will now launch in the first half of our next fiscal year on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and PC.
For Far Cry 5, 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. We’re excited for fans to join the Resistance in Hope County, Montana against the Project at Eden’s Gate cult. Tune in to the Ubiblog tomorrow, December 8th at 10pm PST to get the newest look at Far Cry 5.
Meanwhile, The Crew 2 development team at Ivory Tower will use the next several months 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."
More improvements is always a good thing - better to have a successful launch, then one riddled with issues and lowered expectations. That fact that they say that the next installment of the Far Cry series is the most ambitious yet is also a very good sign, we can't wait to see more!
