Most Upcoming Ubisoft Titles Have Been Hit With Delays
Ubisoft recently confirmed during a conference call with investors that Rainbow Six Quarantine, Gods and Monsters and Watch Dogs Legion will all be delayed until their next fiscal year. Rainbow Six Quarantine was the only one of the three titles to not have an upcoming release date with Watch Dogs Legion releasing in March and Gods and Monsters releasing in February. It’s possible these titles will still release in 2020 as next-generation launch titles but it’s likely they’ll still be available for Xbox One and PS4.
Ubisoft is one of many companies confirming delays today, making us wonder what’s so special about today when developers have had their hands on PS5 devkits for a while now. The next fiscal year runs from April 2020-March 2021, which means Rainbow Six Quarantine, Gods and Monsters and Watch Dogs Legion will all release within that time frame. Other titles delayed today include The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima but expect more delays from other developers until the dust has cleared.
These Ubisoft titles being delayed are likely a reflection on the backlash they faced for Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s launch and the initial reception. We hope that they continue adding to their existing titles such as Rainbow Six Siege and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 while gamers anticipate the release of Rainbow Six Quarantine and Watch Dogs Legion. Rainbow Six Quarantine was already expected to release towards the end of the fiscal year so this delay doesn’t impact Rainbow Six fans too much but Watch Dogs fans have much to mourn and Ubisoft fans anticipating the new Gods and Monsters will have to wait longer.
