Ubisoft has just announced that Far Cry 5 has been delayed until March 27th. It doesn't seem like we'll be waiting too much longer, but the extra time gives the companies the flexibility they need to make the titles a polished experience. "As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success", Burgess-Quémard said.
'Taking a similar approach, we have made a decision to invest additional development time in three upcoming games'.
