Ubisoft Delays “Far Cry 6” & “Rainbow Six Quarantine” Past March
The year of delays marches on. This time around, Ubisoft is delaying two of its most highly-anticipated titles. During a recent financial earnings statement, the company formally announced that both “Far Cry 6” and “Rainbow Six Quarantine” will be pushed further into next year. These delays are the result of “production challenges related to work from home.” The Far Cry team had this to say about the delay on Twitter:
“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.”
So when can we expect these games? Well, both titles have been moved out of the current fiscal year and into fiscal year 2021-2022. That year goes from April 2021 to March 2022. However, CFO Frédérick Duguet says he expects both titles to arrive in the first half of the fiscal year. Hopefully, this means we will be playing both titles at some point in spring next year.
