Today must be delay day as Ubisoft has also announced that they are delaying a trio of titles that were set to launch in early 2020.

Those titles being delayed are Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six: Quarantine. All three titles will now launch in Ubisoft’s fiscal year 2020 to 2021 which begins on April 1, 2020 and ends on March 31, 2021. Watch: Dogs Legion was slated for March, Gods & Monsters for February, and Rainbow Six: Quarantine for early 2020 but we’ll now have to wait a bit longer for all three.

Here is what Ubisoft co-founder and chief executive officer Yves Guillemot said today:

We have decided to postpone the releases of Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Watch Dogs: Legion until 2020 to 2021. 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.
