Ubisoft pushes back release of Far Cry 5 and two more games

The Crew 2 has also been delayed with an indefinite date, with the publisher noting that it will debut sometime in the first half of their 2018-2019 fiscal year (which runs from April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019).

Christine Burgess-Quémard, head of Ubisoft's worldwide studios, said that Origins actually benefited from the delayed deadline and that they hoped it would have the same effect on new games like Far Cry 5, whose original release date is roughly two months away.

In a press release, Ubisoft announced that it will be investing more time into the development of these three upcoming games. "Far Cry 5" was supposed to launch on February 27, but was delayed exactly a month, to March 27. As for what those titles could be remains to be seen, but it's not out of the realm of possibility that one of them could be the next Assassin's Creed, considering Ubisoft's stance on releasing their flagship title on a bi-annual schedule.

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

"Our vision for The Crew 2 has always been ambitious; to really surprise players by pushing the boundaries of the open-world racing genre to the limit".

In The Crew 2, players will be able to enjoy the widest range of vehicles. The game was originally meant to come out on March 16th.

The in-game photo mode in Assassin's Creed Origins is one of the finest we've seen yet, with some of the efforts shared on social media truly magical, and a testament no only to the photographer, but the efforts of Ubisoft Montreal's art team.

The success of Assassin's Creed Origins is largely deserved, due to the favorable critical reception.
