Ubisoft delays Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2

Reported by Eurogamer, Ubisoft delayed "Far Cry 5" and "The Crew 2", which were both originally slated to release in spring 2018. The exact release date is unknown, but it will be at least a month from the original plan to launch on March 16, 2018.

The reason for these three delays is due to the commercial success Ubisoft saw commercially with Assassin's Creed Origins following its longer development time, which "enabled [their] development team to fully express their creative vision".

While all this sales jargon may look confusing, the important thing to takeaway here is that Ubisoft is strategically moving these games in order to give them more time to develop and generate more sales for their bottom line.

Saying that, though, if this extra production time results in Boomer digging up loot crates for players, I will take that back. The two big hitters we already know about haven't had massive delays, but the mysterious new game has been delayed by a whole fiscal year.

The story began to pick up steam when Tennessee appeared to have hired Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano . Pruitt's success this season is particularly impressive given how hard Alabama's defense has been hit by injuries.

In addition, Ubisoft also delayed a third, unannounced franchise title.

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 development team will use the next several months to perform additional playtests, gather player feedback, and continue working towards delivering an ambitious open-world racing experience that meets the team's and players' expectations.

When Ubisoft made a decision to stop Assassin's Creed: Origins from coming out a year too early, it unknowingly set a precedence that Ubisoft would be following in the future. If the company was on track for a February release, these last 30 days can be used for finishing touches.
