Far Cry 6, Rainbow Six Quarantine delayed until at least April 2021

Two of Ubisoft’s biggest upcoming games are being delayed. Far Cry 6 and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine will now launch sometime after March 2021.

The news comes from Ubisoft’s latest earnings report, which updated the release targets for both games. Neither game was given a firm release date, but both are now slated to release during Ubisoft’s next fiscal year, which means that they will launch between April 2021 and March 2022.

The earnings report cites the COVID-19 pandemic as a partial cause of the delays, mentioning “production challenges related to work from home.”

Far Cry 6 was scheduled to launch on February 18, while Rainbow Six Quarantine had yet to receive a firm date. Previously, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot had told investors the latter would launch in the current fiscal year, meaning it would have released before March 2021.

The Far Cry 6 Twitter account confirmed the delay, echoing Ubisoft’s sentiment about the pandemic’s effect on development.

“While we know you are all anxious to get your hands on Far Cry 6, we want to let you know that we’ve been given more time to allow us to make this the game you aspire to play while focusing on the well-being of our teams in this unprecedented global context,” the statement reads.

The rest of Ubisoft’s upcoming calendar remains unchanged with Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Immortals Fenyx Rising launching this year. The upcoming Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake and Riders Republic are still set to come out early next year.
