It’s video game shift week. After yesterday’s CD Projekt Red, which Cyberpunk 2077 postponed for a few weeks, it’s Ubisoft’s turn. The studio announces a postponement of its quarantine games Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six.
According to Ubisoft, the delays are related to “teleworking production challenges” during this time of Covid-19. The studio wants to “exploit” the full potential of games. Offering a reduced version in a few months is therefore not relevant, hence the postponement.
Far Cry 6 should be released on February 18, 2021. The quarantine for Rainbow Six should arrive before the end of Ubisoft’s fiscal year (which ends March 31, 2021). Both games are now planned for fiscal year 2021-2022. They can be released anytime between April 2021 and March 2022. Suffice it to say that we must be patient.
Ubisoft has more games for the next few months. First there is Watch Dogs: Legion, which is available today. Then there is Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, which will be released across the media on November 10th. We can also mention the case of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake for January 2021. Then there is Riders Republic which will be released in February 2021. The other games, like Beyond Good and Evil 2, don’t have a release date. Exit.
