Ubisoft executive Christine Burgess-Quémard said in a statement it will be investing "additional development time" in those games, as it needed more time to develop the recently released Assassin's Creed's Origins.

'Taking a similar approach, we have made a decision to invest additional development time in three upcoming games'.

Ubisoft has delayed two of its upcoming games, Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2, as well as one unannounced title.

Far Cry 5 is now slated for a March 27th, 2018 release, as opposed to releasing on February 27th. Sound off in the comments and let us know! The new launch window for The Crew 2 is the first half of Ubisoft's next fiscal year, which begins April 2018. Given how the first title fared, we don't blame Ubisoft for taking its time to iron out any possible issues that could stand in the way of a smooth launch.

The success of Assassin's Creed Origins is largely deserved, due to the favorable critical reception. Such forward-looking data are provided for estimation purposes only. If recent history is any indication, the wait will be more than worth it. The game doesn't necessarily innovate or depart significantly from the tried-and-tested Assassin's Creed formula, but it boasts a level of polish and care that make it one of the best titles the franchise has ever produced. The teams throughout Ubisoft's worldwide network of studios and business offices are committed to delivering original and memorable gaming experiences across all popular platforms, including consoles, mobile phones, tablets and PCs.
