Rainbow Six Quarantine, Gods & Monsters Still Aiming For Release By March 2021
Both games are still on-track after recent delays, but either could end up delayed if it would benefit them long-term.
Two of Ubisoft's delayed games are still on-track for their release dates, despite not appearing in the most recent Ubisoft Forward presentation. During Ubisoft's Q1 financial earnings call, the company stated that both Gods & Monsters and Rainbow Six Quarantine have not been further delayed, but could be if necessary.
The answer came during the Q&A session of the earnings call. Ubisoft confirmed that both are still coming this fiscal year, which means they'll release by March 2021. CEO Yves Guillemot did say the two are "doing well" and the teams are happy for the extra development time. He also suggested they may be released in Q4, which would include the period from January-March 2021.
Guillemot also suggested that either of the games could slip to fiscal year 2022--which begins April 1, 2021--if it would help improve their long-term impact. In response to a later question, he said that they're both in the polish phase now. He also remarked that we'll hear more in the coming months, possibly alluding to another Ubisoft Forward that's due in September.
Both games were among the ones delayed after Ghost Recon Breakpoint was a disappointment in sales. Watch Dogs Legion was also among those games delayed, but it's since been confirmed for release on October 29. A demo for Gods & Monsters also briefly leaked on Google Stadia.
