Ubisoft has announced that they’ll be delaying the release of Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2.
Far Cry 5 will now release on March 27th, 2018 for Xbox One (with enhancements for Xbox One X), PlayStation 4 (with enhancements for PS4 Pro) and PC. The game was originally set for a February 27th, 2018 release. Ubisoft says the delay will allow the team at Ubisoft Montreal to make some additional improvements to the game.
Here’s what Far Cry 5 is about:
“As the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana,” Ubisoft says, “players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden’s Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Caught off guard and drawn into a power struggle, players must disrupt the carefully laid plans of the Project at Eden’s Gate and fan the fires of resistance to help liberate the Hope County community and themselves.”
The Crew 2 meanwhile, has been delayed until the first half of Ubisoft’s next fiscal year, which begin in April 2018. The delay will help the development team at Ivory Tower 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.”
The Crew 2 will be released for Xbox One (with enhancements for Xbox One X), PlayStation 4 (with enhancements for PS4 Pro) and PC.
