Far Cry 5 Delayed Due To Ubisoft’s Newfound Commitment To Quality

Ubisoft just announced that it will be delaying the release of several of its upcoming titles, including Far Cry 5 and the Crew 2. This is apparently due to the success of Assassin’s Creed Origins, which is currently being praised as a refreshing addition to the series.

One of the biggest criticisms that gamers and reviewers have leveled at Ubisoft over the years is the company’s tendency to recycle its games without really offering anything new. This was the case with its Assassin’s Creed franchise up until Assassin’s Creed Origins came out. The reception for that title’s fresh approach to the series apparently convinced Ubisoft that it needs to spend more time refining its games, which is why Far Cry 5 is being delayed.

The game is now scheduled for release on March 27, 2018, PC Gamer reports. The Crew 2, which was originally slated for a March 26th release is now being pushed to come out around September 2018, at the latest.

There was apparently another game that Ubisoft was working on and hadn’t announced yet, which was planned for launch in 2019. However, it’s being delayed as well, which means that its announcement might happen in 2019 and launch around 2020.

In the blog post announcing the delays, Ubisoft noted that it’s due to the company’s desire to make some improvements to the games. This might just go some ways to address the fears that many gamers have about the game. There’s been much speculation that Far Cry 5 will just be Far Cry 4 with some updated graphics and a new setting.

“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,” the post reads.
