And that unannounced game, which is said to be one of three unannounced franchise titles, has been pushed to fiscal 2019-20.

"As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game's quality and largely participated to its commercial success".

Slightly disappointing news coming out of Ubisoft, as it announces that three of its upcoming games are to suffer delays: Far Cry 5, The Crew 2 and an as-yet-unannounced third game. As a result, The Crew 2 will be released sometime between April and September 2018.

Far Cry 5 is now slated to release on 27th March and The Crew 2 will come out in the first half of fiscal 2018/19 with an unannounced game being released in fiscal 2019/20.

In a brief blog post today, Ubisoft announced the delay of the two titles mentioned above. The open-world first-person shooting game where users will be trying to free a fictional Montana town from the clutches of a overzealous religious cult, will be now be released on March 28. "We have made the hard decision to delay the release date to between April/September 2018". It's no where near the level of South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

Head over to the official Assassins's Creed Photo Mode website for more information, and a little inspiration. From what we're reading here, the latter part of 2018 could see the debut of Skull and Bones, along with other major titles.

In a press release, Ubisoft Worldwide Studios Executive Director Christine Burgress-Quémard likened the situation to its decision to stop releasing "Assassin's Creed" annually, which led to that series taking 2016 off before "Assassin's Creed Origins" launched at the end of October. Fortunately, Ubisoft is finally understanding that concept.
