Ubisoft announced delays on several major upcoming releases into the next fiscal year, citing the need for extra development time.

The announcement came as part of a report from Thursday by Ubisoft offering updated financial figures and release dates for the 2020-21 fiscal year. The games delayed were “Watch Dogs Legion,” “Gods & Monsters,” and “Rainbow Six: Quarantine,” which will now all release by March 31, 2021. Ubisoft did not provide specific release dates for any of the games.

“Gods & Monsters” and “Watch Dogs Legion” were originally set to release on Feb. 25 and March 6, respectively, while “Rainbow Six: Quarantine” was due out before the end of the current fiscal year on March 31. According to Gamespot, an investor call following the report suggested “Gods & Monsters” and “Watch Dogs” will most likely release in the second half of 2020.

“Rainbow Six” is still up in the air, as is Ubisoft’s long-gestating pirate game, “Skull & Bones.”

Ubisoft co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot addressed the delays, saying extra development time was needed in light of disappointing performance by recent releases like “Ghost Recon: Breakpoint” and “The Division 2.”

“For Ghost Recon Breakpoint, while the game’s quality appeared on track – based on E3, Gamescom, previews and our latest internal playtests – critical reception and sales during the game’s first weeks were very disappointing,” Guillemot said. “As we have done with past titles, we will continue to support the game and listen to the community in order to deliver the necessary improvements.”

The primary reasons he cited were lack of interest in sequels to “live multiplayer” games, better implementation of gameplay “innovations,” and the inability of “Breakpoint” to differentiate itself from predecessor “Ghost Recon: Wildlands.”

“Watch Dogs Legion’s” development team also released a statement on Twitter.
