Today was Ubisoft’s turn to announce some delays. During an earnings update today, Ubisoft announced that Rainbow Six Quarantine and Far Cry 6 would not be released until after April 2021. This news was shared on Twitter by Daniel Ahmad, a Senior Analyst at Niko Partners. You can guess the reason, but I’ll tell you anyway. Taken from the full report, the delay was caused by “production challenges caused by COVID-19.”
Ubisoft still has a big slate of releases coming in the next few months. Watch Dogs: Legion is out today with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla coming November 10th. Just Dance 2021 will have you cutting rug on November 12th, and the very interesting but poorly named Immortals Fenyx Rising is releasing December 3rd. (You can watch Chris play the demo on Stadia here.) They also have two games in early 2021 with the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake hitting January 21st and Riders Republic hitting the trails on February 25th.
Ubisoft dropped a lot more details, and, if you want to read Ubisoft’s full report today, you can click here. Both games will be coming sometime after April 2021, and the good news is that we’ll receive better games with (hopefully) fewer patches needed to get the best experience possible.
