The Ubisoft development teams should have more time to finish the games in peace – in compliance with the Corona measures.
Ubisoft will postpone two games that are important for the company: Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine will come at a later date. The reason for this is currently omnipresent and can be traced back to measures taken by the coronavirus. "We have been given more time to make the game worthwhile for you to play while at the same time focusing on the well-being of our teams in this unprecedented time." the company writes on Twitter .
The postponement of both titles was also announced in the company's current financial report . This was included in the forecast for the first half of the fiscal year 2021. Accordingly, the games will be postponed to the year 2021 to 2022, which, based on the semi-annual report, will begin in April 2021 and end in March 2022. Far Cry 6 was originally scheduled for February 2021, while Rainbow Six Quarantine should be released in 2020.
Caribbean and infected
Far Cry 6 is currently being developed by several Ubisoft studios based in Canada, China, Ukraine and Berlin. Accordingly, different corona requirements must be observed, which requires additional coordination work. The first person shooter is set to take place on a fictional Caribbean island that is ruled by a dictator – played by Giancarlo Esposito.
Rainbow Six Quarantine will be a tactical shooter focused on player-versus-environment and cooperative missions. This is reminiscent of older titles in the series, in which players slip into the role of police and military units to stop criminals. Similar to Rainbow Six Siege, there should be a selection of operators who play differently and specialize in different things. The goal is to defeat infected opponents.
