Ubisoft is moving the release date of Far Cry 5 to March 2018. "Taking more time with Assassin's Creed Origins enabled our talented development team to fully express their creative vision. As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success", he added. There is no clue as to what the game is, but it seems to imply a sequel to an existing game so... maybe Watch Dogs or Assassin's Creed.
As Ubisoft stated, this extra time will give allow Ubisoft Montreal to make some additional improvements that will bring the best, most ambitious Far Cry experience in line with the team's original vision. The company confirmed in a new blog post that bothFar Cry 5 and The Crew 2 have been pushed back, though at least Far Cry's isn't a huge setback. Players will battle against a violent, anti-government religious sect in the United States. As a result, we are now in a position to both update our financial 2017-18 targets, notably by revising our profitability upward, as well as invest additional development time in our future releases. 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). In addition, one of the three unannounced franchise games initially planned for release in Fiscal 2018-19 now will be released in Fiscal 2019-20. Thankfully, February is only 28 days.
