The corona pandemic has not left Ubisoft without a trace, so the company has to postpone one or the other release. Among other things, it hits Far Cry 6.
Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine postponed
Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine were originally supposed to usher in a good year for Ubisoft in early 2021, but that is no longer the case. Ubisoft has announced that both the newest Far Cry game and the Rainbow Six: Siege spin-off have been announced be moved. The reason given is the problems caused by the corona pandemic.
Industry insider Daniel Ahmad has published more information on this conference call. While no new dates have been set yet, there are at least a general publishing window and thus a direction.
When can you expect Far Cry 6?
Industry insider Daniel Ahmad posted Ubisoft's current pipeline for the rest of the financial year on Twitter. So you can look forward to Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Just Dance 2021 and Immortals Fenyx Rising this year. You can expect the releases of Prince of Persia Remake and Riders Republic in January to March 2021.
Both Rainbow Six Quarantine and Far Cry 6 should now after April 2021, but before March 2022 published – this is a large window of time, but it allows Ubisoft flexibility. While the delays may be disappointing to some fans, in hindsight they could be a blessing and ensure well-balanced games.
