Ubisoft has delayed the release of The Crew 2

Ubisoft has delayed the release of The Crew 2

"Taking more time with Assassin's Creed Origins enabled our talented development team to fully express their creative vision", Burgess-Quémard said in a press release.

In a press release, Ubisoft announced that it will be investing more time into the development of these three upcoming games.

Delays for Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 have been handed down by Ubisoft.

Starting off with the least severe, Far Cry 5 has been officially delayed by one month, and will now hit store shelves on March 27, 2018, instead of its previous date February 27, 2017.

It's pretty nice to hear Ubisoft delaying their games to give their developers more time on them.




Pushing back the release by a month shouldn't anger fans too much, especially after Ubisoft has shown the level of quality possible with a little bit of extra time.

The success of Assassin's Creed Origins is largely deserved, due to the favorable critical reception.

The Group is standing by its sales target, with a further move towards a more recurring profile which provides additional visibility: higher levels of back-catalog sales and digital revenue and a lower number of units expected for the 4 AAA releases (The Crew 2, Skull & Bones and 2 unannounced franchises).

Finally, a previously-disclosed but completely unannounced game, which has now been delayed from Fiscal Year 2018-2019 to the Fiscal 2019-2020 year (April 1, 2019, to March 31, 2020). Thankfully, February is only 28 days.

Ubisoft is in the third quarter of the fiscal year, so The Crew 2 probably won't release until sometime next spring, as fiscal year 2018-19 doesn't start until the end of March.
