Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine, two of the most anticipated titles developed by Ubisoft, have been shifted to the 2021-2022 fiscal year. This means that they will be released between April 2021 and March 2022.
The announcement was made during a recent earnings call, and the CFO of the company has mentioned that both titles should be ready for release by the first half of the fiscal year. However, investors will be pleased with the fact that financial expectations were outperformed.
Extra details about Far Cry 6
The Far Cry 6 team has also released a few details about the factors behind the delay. Far Cry 6 has been revealed earlier this year with a lot of bells and whistles and it is marketed as the largest and most complex game in the long-running series.
While many fans were looking forward to the games, the team noted that the additional time would be put to good use as it plans to refine gameplay mechanics and make additional changes that will make the title better in the long-run.
Keeping glitches away
While Watch Dogs: Legion was released after being delayed, some voices argue that the title should have spend more time in development, as a large variety of bugs have been encountered by players. Some of the glitches are minor visual issues, but others can be quite fun, such as motorcycles spinning in the sky.
However, players on Xbox One consoles have encountered a game-breaking bug that ruined the experience. While in most cases, players cannot continue the story, some have also noted that the console started to overheat and shut down. An emergency patch was released by Ubisoft to take issues across all platforms.
Ubisoft is also hard at work on the next Assassin’s Creed title, which should be released on November 10, 2010.
