Ubisoft has announced that the Far Cry 5 release date has been moved a month from the original release date previously announced. The Far Cry 5 release will now be on 27 March 2018 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
The Crew 2 has also been delayed, and will now be released in the first half of Ubisoft’s fiscal year in 2018.
In a blog post in Ubiblog, Ubisoft explained why they needed to delay both games’ release.
“For Far Cry 5, the extra time will allow the team at 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. We’re excited for fans to join the Resistance in Hope County, Montana against the Project at Eden’s Gate cult.”
Ubisoft also added that fans will get “the newest look” at the game at 10PM PST, 8 December (7AM CEST, 9 December). Head over to Ubiblog to see it.
As for The Crew 2, Ubisoft explained that Ivory Tower’s development team will use the extra time 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.”
In case you haven’t heard, the Far Cry 5 mini map has been removed from the game – this, along with the radio towers. The game’s writer explains why.
