Were we wrong? Do YOU actually care about The Crew 2 and its delay? Tune in to the Ubiblog tomorrow, December 8th at 10 p.m. PST to get the newest look at Far Cry 5. Still, the wait till be a little longer for these well-loved sequels.

Ubisoft announced today that it will be delaying three 2018 games: Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and a third unannounced franchise game.

The decision, said Christine Burgess-Quémard, Ubisoft's worldwide studios executive director, was influenced by the success of Assassin's Creed Origins, which also suffered a delay.

She continued on to say, "As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success". Thanks to Assassin's Creed Origins' success, Ubisoft has chose to take what they learned from allowing their developers more time with a game and have applied it to their upcoming games.
