Christine Burgess-Quémard, Ubisoft’s Worldwide Studios Executive Director, stated the following on the games setback:
This decision is in line with our strategic vision of developing even more engaging and higher quality experiences for gamers. Taking more time with Assassin’s Creed Origins enabled our talented development team to fully express their creative vision. As expected, this had a very positive impact on the game’s quality and largely participated to its commercial success. Taking a similar approach, we have decided to invest additional development time in three upcoming games.
Ubisoft has obtained a mild-success this year with their current line-up of games under their belt. Including the opening of a new Berlin-based studio which they’ve said has helped the development of Far Cry 5. All in all, at least the game wasn’t pushed too far into 2018, so it’s still a hand reach away.
