Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 have been delayed, Ubisoft announced in a post on the company’s official blog.
Originally slated for a Feb. 27, 2018 release, Far Cry 5 will now release one month later on March 27, 2018. The delay will allow developers at Ubisoft Montreal to add some finishing polish to the first-person shooter, Ubisoft said.

“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,” Ubisoft states in the blog entry.
The blog also states that Ubisoft will be releasing the “newest look” at Far Cry 5 Dec. 8 at 10 p.m. PT.
Additionally, The Crew 2 has been pushed back from its March 16, 2018 launch date to the first half of the 2018-19 fiscal year. That timeline puts the game’s release somewhere between April 2018 and September 2019.
“The Crew 2 development team at Ivory Tower 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 our players’ expectations,” Ubisoft said.
Both Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC when they eventually release.
Ubisoft also pushed back an unannounced title to the 2019-20 fiscal year.
