Whether it’s highly anticipated upcoming releases or ongoing games such as For Honor, the current health concerns regarding the spread of Covid-19 has led to a number of unfortunate delays for the video game industry.
Today Ubisoft has confirmed that their next season for the publisher’s flagship fighting game would be pushed back to June 11th due to disruptions.
For Honor Year 4 Season 2 didn’t have a confirmed launch date though would have likely gone live in early May, similar to 2019’s Y3S2.
The team at Ubisoft Montreal issued the following statement to their player community:
First and foremost, we hope that everyone is doing well and is safe at home during these times. On our side, the team is still hard at work to keep For Honor fully operational even though we are doing so from home.
We are proud of how quickly everyone on the For Honor development team has adapted to the situation. However, even with all our efforts during these times, the disruption over the past weeks is having an impact on our ability to deliver our near term content updates. For this reason, we have taken the decision to delay the release of Year 4 Season 2 to June 11, 2020.
We know that this news is disappointing; we were all excited to be able to show you what was coming to For Honor for the upcoming season. However, we are confident this was the right decision for us to be able to launch the content as we intended.
On a positive note, the team is currently working on a plan to be able to bring back fan-favorite activities to compensate for this delay. Those activities will be available in May and we will soon share more details within our May roadmap.
We want to thank you for your continued passion and support. Stay safe everyone.
Last month For Honor played host to a surprise crossover event starring the Prince of Persia himself.
