Ubisoft has announced that they have delayed Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine to the fiscal year 2021 to 2022. What this means is that both games will now launch between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2022.
Far Cry 6 was previously slated to launch for the PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia on 18 February 2021.
Meanwhile, Rainbow Six Quarantine didn’t have a definitive release date but it was previously slated for the fiscal year 2020 to 2021, which meant between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021.
Here is the statement from Ubisoft confirming the delay, according to its latest financial report:
Benefitting from this strong momentum and despite having moved Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine to 2021-22 to leverage their full potential in the context of production challenges caused by COVID-19, our new non-IFRS operating income targets for 2020-21 remain within the boundaries we set back in May.
Being able to maximize the long term value of our IPs while at the same time maintaining solid financial targets highlights the increasing recurring nature of our revenues, the strength of our portfolio of franchises, confidence in our holiday season release slate and current supportive industry dynamics.”
