Whatever that game is it now won't come out until a year later, i.e. April 2019 to March 2020.
The decision to push the release dates back, according to Christine Burgess-Quémard, Ubisoft's worldwide studios executive director, was in a large part due to the massive success of Assassin's Creed Origins.
Slightly disappointing news coming out of Ubisoft, as it announces that three of its upcoming games are to suffer delays: Far Cry 5, The Crew 2 and an as-yet-unannounced third game.
Far Cry 5 releases on March 27, 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Below are the two short messages published by Ubisoft to justify the decision to delay the two titles. In other words, the delay of Far Cry 5 has angered some gamers that were counting the days until its release.
As for The Crew 2, it will no longer be released on March 16th, 2018.
Ubisoft has announced Far Cry 5, the latest entry in its first-person shooter series, has been delayed.
"Our vision for The Crew 2 has always been ambitious; to really surprise players by pushing the boundaries of the open-world racing genre to the limit". There is no clue as to what the game is, but it seems to imply a sequel to an existing game so... maybe Watch Dogs or Assassin's Creed. Now we know one of the reasons for this. This isn't a major setback for the game, with it still launching in Q1 2018, and hopefully that extra month of development will help Ubisoft give it some extra polish.
This approach worked with the fairly successful Assassin's Creed: Origins.
