    Call me a cynic, but I'm willing to bet this is connected to the recent lootbox controversy. Considering how congested AC: Origins was with tmicrotransaction bullshit, it wouldn't surprise me if Ubisoft was planning on putting them into FC5 and The Crew 2 and started getting second thoughts once governments started talking about regulating them.

    Might not be the case, but given the timing, I wouldn't be surprised if it was.

    "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," Burgess-Quémard said. "Taking a similar approach, we have decided to invest additional development time in three upcoming games."

    Normally I'd agree with you, but Far Cry has only been delayed by a month. That doesn't seem like a lot of time to be potentially re-developing entire gameplay and progression systems that might have been in there

    To be fair isn't that the generic response given whenever any game is delayed?

    It's basically "We delayed it to make it better."

    I mean in the end we'll never know because we won't know what difference this extra development time made to the game.

    It's Ubisoft. The company that tried to publish games every year. Not saying you're wrong, but they've done stupid shit like that before.

    That's why I'm still considering the possibility of the delay being for something else. It's just as likely if not moreso that it's just an extended bugtesting thing.

    Either way I'm fine. I'm actually looking forward to it so any reason to fine-tune it is good enough to me.
