Two of the most awaited games by Ubisoft Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine have been pushed further into the next FY 2021-2-22. Which means these games will be out to play sometime between April 2021 and March 2022. Recent development states that the games can be expected in the first half of the fiscal year as confirmed by CFO Frederick Duguet.
In its recent financial earnings statement, these announcements of delay were made by the company. Due to the ongoing pandemic which has affected most of the deadlines for major firms. Similarly, even Ubisoft has been affected with delays in its projects due to the challenges faces related to work from home.
In a statement posted on Twitter by the Far Cry team explained:
“Earlier this year, we introduced you to Far Cry 6–the most ambitious game in the series to date. We promised an immersive fantasy to lead a modern-day guerrilla revolution set in a rich and exotic world, filled with memorable moments, killer characters, and an epic story.
“While we know you are all anxious to get your hands on Far Cry 6, we want to let you know that we’ve been given more time to allow us to make this the game you aspire to play while focusing on the well-being of our teams in this unprecedented global context. Our teams around the world are working in the studios and from their homes to pour their passion and creativity into making an unforgettable game–one we hope you will love.”
Far Cry 6 had earlier been scheduled for a February 18, 2021 release and the Rainbow Six Quarantine was set for an early 2021 release, which was already delayed in 2019 along with other games like Gods & Monsters and Watch Dogs Legion. The reason stated by then CEO Yves Guillemot that these games needed more time to work on their performance which didn’t match to other recent games and needed work and time to live up to their potential. Watch Dogs is out, and Immortals is due in December.
When Far Cry 6 and Rainbow six Quarantine release, we will have the latest technology of gaming available like PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X in the market. Ubisoft has promised these games will come with the latest upgrades and enhanced performances.
