by Charlie Fripp, ESPN

Development studio Ubisoft today announced that as development on The Crew 2 and Far Cry 5 continues, both games will now be released later than originally announced.

For fans of Far Cry 5, they only have to wait a month longer, as the title will now be released on March 27th, 2018 - instead of February 27th, 2018.

The Crew 2 is a slightly different story, as it has now been pushed back to an undisclosed date. It will now come out in the first half of Fiscal 2018-19 - rather than on March 16th, 2018.

There is also an unannounced franchise game that will be released in Fiscal 2019-20 – instead of Fiscal 2018-19.

“This decision is in line with our strategic vision of developing even more engaging and higher quality experiences for gamers. Taking more time with Assassin’s Creed Origins enabled our talented development team to fully express their creative vision,” said Christine Burgess-Quémard, Ubisoft’s Worldwide Studios Executive Director, in a press statement.

“As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game’s quality and largely participated to its commercial success. Taking a similar approach, we have decided to invest additional development time in three upcoming games,” Burgess-Quémard concluded.
