Ubisoft has pushed two of its biggest games, Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine, out of the current fiscal year and into FY 2021-2022. That means that according to the revised fiscal calendar, we’ll see them coming sometime between April 2021 and March 2022.
The company announced the delays as part of its recent financial earnings statement. It also updated its expectations to reflect the delays of these two “high-contribution titles,” which it says were delayed “due to production challenges related to work from home.”
Far Cry had been set for February 18, 2021, while Rainbow Six Quarantine was targeting early 2021. Quarantine had already been delayed in 2019, alongside Watch Dogs Legion and Gods & Monsters (now renamed Immortals: Fenyx Rising). At the time, CEO Yves Guillemot chalked up the delays to a disappointing performance from other recent games, saying that the extra time was necessary to make the projects live up to their potential. Watch Dogs released this week, while Immortals is due in December.
When Far Cry 6 and R6 Quarantine do come out, we’ll be well into the next generation with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and Series S on the market. Ubisoft has already detailed plans to offer next-gen upgrades with enhanced performance, and for the time being, at least, isn’t making the next-gen versions cost $70.
