Far Cry 6, Rainbow Six Quarantine Delayed to April 2021 at Earliest
Ubisoft announced delays for both Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine until at least April 2021 in an earnings report released Thursday.
Ubisoft cited production challenges resulting from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in its announcement. The games will still be released before March 2022, provided the new timetable holds true.
"Benefitting from this strong momentum and despite having moved Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine to 2021-22 to leverage their full potential in the context of production challenges caused by COVID-19, our new non-IFRS operating income targets for 2020-21 remain within the boundaries we set back in May," reads the company statement.
Far Cry 6 had previously been scheduled for release in Feb. 18, 2021, while Rainbow Six Quarantine had been set to arrive before the end of Ubisoft's fiscal year on March 31. Ubisoft released Watch Dogs Legion on Thursday, half a year after its original March release date.
