Ubisoft has delayed Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine to fiscal year 2020 to 2021, which begins on April 1, 2020 and ends March 31, 2021.
“We have decided to postpone the releases of Gods Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Watch Dogs: Legion until 2020 to 2021,” Ubisoft co-founder and chief executive officer Yves Guillemot said in a press release. “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 to 2021.”
Gods Monsters was previously planned for release across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and Stadia on February 25, 2020, while Watch Dogs: Legion was planned for release across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia on March 6, 2020. Rainbow Six Quarantine was scheduled for early 2020 across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
