Ubisoft has once again delayed their uncomfortably titled Rainbow Six Quarantine game.
Ubisoft’s keenness to delay two games comes down to the current enhanced sales of software and live-service engagement that has emerged due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“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,” said Ubisoft’s chief financial officer Frédérick Duguet.
“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.”
Ubisoft still has six other games launching in the next five months: Watch Dogs Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Just Dance 2021, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Prince of Persia The Sands of Time and Riders Republic.
