Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine delayed until after Easter says Ubisoft

Two of Ubisoft’s biggest upcoming games have been delayed indefinitely, as the ongoing pandemic continues to wreak havoc with release dates.

In what’s likely to a be a familiar story over the coming months, two of next year’s big-name games have already been delayed from their originally intended release date.

Far Cry 6 was to have been released on February 18 but will now have to wait until some point after Ubisoft’s next financial year, which begins in April 2021.

It’s not much of a surprise given how little of the game has been seen up till now, with still no gameplay footage despite it having been revealed back in July.

‘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’, reads a message from the development team.

Rainbow Six Quarantine is in a similar position, although it was announced back in June 2019 and has never had a proper release date or anything other than a pre-rendered trailer.

It’s already been delayed once and the concept of a Rainbow Six game where you fight aliens has not gone down well with many fans, although the teaser trailer suggests the game will still have a serious tone.

At this point it wouldn’t be surprising if it was just cancelled, although the problem with the pandemic is that not only do games get delayed but it also becomes harder to promote them – so it could well be looking good so far and there’s just been no chance to prove it.

Ubisoft’s slate is a busy one at the moment though, with Watch Dogs: Legion out this week, Just Dance 2021 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla next month, Immortals Fenyx Rising in December, and The Prince Of Persia Remake and Riders Republic (a multiplayer extreme sports game) out in the spring.
