Far Cry 5 was due to release on February 27th 2018 but will now land a month later on March 27th instead.

The Crew 2 has also been delayed. And according to Ubisoft three of their upcoming titles need "additional development time". The cause for delay is that they want more time to playtest and implement feedback. Thanks to Assassin's Creed Origins' success, Ubisoft has chose to take what they learned from allowing their developers more time with a game and have applied it to their upcoming games.

Far Cry 5 will now release on March 27th, 2018, one month later than its previously detailed February 27th, 2018 release. This is an approach, Ubisoft notes, the company took with past titles like Assassin's Creed Origins.

Far Cry 5 is set in a locale far removed from the previous releases.

Finally Ubisoft mentions the delay of a third game that hasn't been announced but is referred to as "one of the three unannounced franchise games" which was originally planned for the fiscal year 2018-19, now releasing in fiscal year 2019-20.

The Crew 2 is an open-world game that will span across all of the United States.

Ubisoft said it is delaying the release dates of two of its more popular games. Next, The Crew 2 will now hit stores shelves in the first half of Fiscal 2018-2019, placing it somewhere between 1 April and 31 September 2018.

In addition to The Crew 2 and Skull & Bones, for the fiscal year 2018-2019 Ubisoft plans to launch 2 AAA production games not yet announced. If recent history is any indication, the wait will be more than worth it.
