Ubisoft has announced that Watch_Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Gods & Monsters have all been delayed. This delay is mainly due to the underperformance of The Division 2 and Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.
According to the publisher, these three games will now release in fiscal 2020-21.
Yves Guillemot, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said:
“We have decided to postpone the releases of Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Watch_Dogs Legion until 2020-21. While each of these games already has a strong identity and high potential, we want our teams to have more development time to ensure that their respective innovations are perfectly implemented so as to deliver optimal experiences for players. This decision will have a very significant impact on our financial results for this fiscal year and goes against our recent successes in building a more stable development model. However, it is in line with our strategy to maximize the future value of our brands for the longterm benefit of our employees, players and shareholders. We expect it to have a positive impact on our financial performance as from 2020-21.”
The Watch_Dogs Legion team has released an official statement about the state of the game. While it did not comment on the delay, it did claim that it’s doing its best to offer a quality product.
