With the brand new 12 months simply over the horizon, many are already trying to 2018 for his or her subsequent huge gaming repair. If you happen to have been anticipating Ubisoft video games like Far Cry 5, nonetheless, you are going to want to attend slightly longer than anticipated to lastly get your palms on them.
Ubisoft introduced at this time through a press launch trio of upcoming video games can be seeing a delay, together with the extremely anticipated Far Cry 5. To not fear, although, as a result of we’re not taking a look at something too dramatic. All instructed, the calendar has been pushed again on three video games, solely two of which we’re actually conscious of at this level.
The primary Ubisoft sport to get delayed is Far Cry 5, initially deliberate to launch on Feb. 27 of subsequent 12 months. For these of you who’re completely dying to go romping about in Montana whereas preventing a murderous cult, you are going to have to attend an additional 30 days to leap into the motion. The sport is now set to launch on March 27 of subsequent 12 months. See, not too dangerous of a delay, proper?
The second sport to get delayed is The Crew 2, the driving sport initially slated for a March 16 arrival. The brand new launch window is a bit vaguer on this one, now pushed to the “first half of fiscal 2018-19.” Whereas the Far Cry 5 delay is barely a few month, the delay for The Crew 2 appears like it’ll be a bit extra important. The primary half of fiscal 2018 is principally the again half of the 12 months, so it might be as huge a change as 9 months. We’re guessing it will not take fairly that lengthy, however that is what the brand new window is at present set to.
Lastly, there’s an unannounced franchise sport that Ubisoft was initially planning to launch someday throughout fiscal 2018-19. That sport is now being pushed to the following fiscal 12 months, which means it will not come out till the top of 2019 or early 2020. This good factor about this one is that we don’t know what sport Ubisoft is even speaking about, so we’re not too bummed to listen to a sport has been delayed once we weren’t even anticipating it to start with.
And, as all the time, we would not actually be bummed to start with. Delays like these assist be sure that the video games we’re desperate to play are extra polished, full packages. If Ubisoft wants some further time to nail down Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2, we are saying extra energy to them.
In fact, we will not assist however speculate right here. It is totally attainable that Ubisoft simply needs some further time to launch high quality video games. Given the current microtransaction/loot field controversies, although, we will not assist however surprise if some programs are being retooled with a view to maintain these video games from struggling the identical destiny of dangerous publicity video games like Battlefront II and Destiny 2 have been dealing with.
