Assassin's Creed Origins

According to Ubisoft, it plans to invest in additional development time for Far Cry 5, which pushes it out of a late February release and into late March.

Ubisoft also confirmed an unannounced game from a "franchise" now has to be delayed until April 1, 2019 until March 31, 2020.

"This decision is in line with our strategic vision of developing even more engaging and higher quality experiences for gamers", said Ubisoft exec Christine Burgess-Quémard.

Today, Ubisoft has announced that it has chose to delay the release dates of two of its most anticipated titles coming next year.

Far Cry 5 will only be delayed by one month, whereas the entire Assassin's Creed franchise was given a year off after a couple of underwhelming releases. While large game studios generally stick to deadlines, unforeseen circumstances and the desire for more polish often see big titles pushed back - Sometimes by a little bit, and occasionally by a lot.

In a brief blog post today, Ubisoft announced the delay of the two titles mentioned above.

Far Cry 5 releases on March 27, 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. We've just had an Assassin's Creed so it's not that, so maybe Watch Dogs 3, or The Division 2.

Far Cry 5 is set in a locale far removed from the previous releases. You can check out the most recent trailer for it down below.
