Ubisoft delays the launch of several games

It seems that the sales of the latest games developed by Ubisoft are not as good as they expected. That seems to be the main reason behind the announcement of the delay of several titles that are in the works. Gods and Monsters, Watch Dogs: Legion and Rainbow Six Quarantine will launch later than it was initially planned and Ubisoft president Yves Guillemot has been very clear in a statement about the reasons for this change.

“While each of these games already has a strong identity and high potential, we want our teams to have more development time to ensure that their respective innovations are perfectly implemented so as to deliver optimal experiences for players.”

The release of Watch Dogs: Legion was originally scheduled for March 3, 2020, and Ubisoft has decided to move it to the following fiscal year, which starts in April. The same happens with Rainbow Six Quarantine and Gods and Monsters, which will also be released during the 20-21 fiscal year. No accurate date has been revealed for the release of any of the games, so we are not sure of when exactly will it happen.

Guillemot acknowledged that The Division 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint have fallen short of expectations regarding sales and critical reception in the first few weeks after launch. According to him, the reasons for this could be that the games "did not come in with enough differentiation factors, which prevented the game’s intrinsic qualities from standing out." If you have played those games, you would probably agree that the microtransactions system implemented in both could have had a severe impact on the players' response, especially in the case of Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which has seen a lot of complaints from the players.

Trying to look positively at all this, it seems that the studios developing the upcoming Ubisoft games are going to have a bit more time to polish their products and hopefully, they won't make the same mistakes again. You can still find the best prices to get those games through our comparator.
