A short time ago today, Ubisoft delivered some unfortunate news to their fans. They have decided to delay three different games today until at least April 2020. Specifically, they have announced delays for Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods & Monsters.

All three of these games have been pushed back until some time in the company's next fiscal year. It should be noted that their next fiscal year starts April 2020 and runs through March 2021.

Watch Dogs Legion was first revealed back at E3 2019. It confirmed an earlier leak that suggested you would be able to take control over pretty much any NPC that you wanted to. This included a gun carrying little old lady, Helen, that stole the spotlight in the initial reveal.

Legion was originally planned for release in early March 2020. Rainbow Six Quarantine was also revealed. It is an upcoming tactical co-op shooter set in the same world as the Rainbow Six franchise. Gods & Monsters is an upcoming action-adventure title based on Greek mythology. It is being worked on by the team that worked on Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

According to their announcement (PDF link), these delays are being made in order to "ensure that their respective innovations are perfectly implemented so as to deliver optimal experiences for players." Their full quote with respect to these new delays can be read below.

We have decided to postpone the releases of Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Watch_Dogs Legion until 2020-21. 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 long-term benefit of our employees, players and shareholders. We expect it to have a positive impact on our financial performance as from 2020-21.
