Ubisoft Delays Watch Dogs Legion and Rainbow Six Quarantine Over Poor Sales

Ubisoft is not so optimistic right now as the company claims their recent games The Division 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint did bad business on launch. It has led them to delaying the release of their upcoming titles Watch Dogs Legion and Rainbow Six: Quarantine.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is a poor performer because the game received bad reviews from critics and gamers alike. It further lead to a huge drop in sales and maybe people who have pre-ordered it might have even cancelled it because of the critical reviews.

Ubisoft has decided that the company will push these releases to 2020-21 fiscal year in order to cope up loses and also give space for all the existing titles to perform better in terms of sales. While the company didn’t explicitly admitted this reason, they stated that the teams require more time in order to polish the game and deliver a quality product.

Watch Dogs will deliver better quality

In their own official statement, developers of Watch Dogs: Legion further added that they wish to build a world where it is possible to play as any character. Everyone has a back story and in order to provide players the opportunity to be any character requires plenty of effort from the developer’s side.

They further added that the additional delivery time will allow them to provide a futuristic London like no other and it will be more immersive, realistic when developed fully. In their official note, Ubisoft further added that the delayed release will play a role in helping them cope up with the financial results in the next two years. It provides an opportunity for their employees to benefit and also their shareholders as it is poised to do well when these games get released with a delayed release date than originally planned. Another title from Ubisoft named Gods & Monsters has also been delayed.

For gamers, this is good news as a finished product is something every PC gamer would want and even on Xbox One or PS4, the problem persists if titles are launched half-baked. Besides, in order to spend $60 on a title, you possibly require some time between launches and make a decision on the kind of games you would like to invest in.
