Ubisoft Delays Multiple Games Including Watch Dogs Legion
Watch Dogs Legion, Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine are among the games that have been delayed from their original release date.
Today was not a good day for the video games that were going to launch in 2020. Sony has delayed The Last of Us Part 2 from its original February 21, 2020, release date to May 29, 2020. There are also rumors about Ghost of Tsushima getting delayed to the second half of 2020.
This news was followed by Ubisoft sharing details on their financial results that saw the launch of two major games, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. Both of these games ended up underperforming for Ubisoft with the former being a failure for the company due to it getting critcally panned in reviews.
Speaking about Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that the company was disappointed by first-week sales and critical reception around the game’s launch.
“For Ghost Recon Breakpoint, while the game’s quality appeared on track – based on E3, Gamescom, previews and our latest internal playtests –, critical reception and sales during the game’s first weeks were very disappointing. As we have done with past titles, we will continue to support the game and listen to the community in order to deliver the necessary improvements.”
Ubisoft has now delayed Watch Dogs Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Ghost Recon Quarantine from the current fiscal year which ends on March 31, 2020, to the next one. This means these games will now launch at any period between April 1, 2020, to March 31, 2021. They haven’t shared any updated release date for these games which were first revealed during Ubisoft’s E3 2019 press conference.
