Bad news for Ubisoft fans looking forward to Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2… the publisher has announced that both games have been delayed.
Far Cry 5 was expected to launch for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 27, but it’s been pushed back exactly four weeks (to March 27) so the team at Ubisoft Montreal can add a bit more polish to the game. In the more immediate future, Ubisoft will release a new trailer for Far Cry 5 on Saturday, December 9, at 1:00 AM (Eastern Time):
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.
The Crew 2 is also in the works for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and it was originally scheduled to launch in Early 2018. But now it’s release date has been rescheduled for sometime in Spring/Summer 2018:
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.
