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.
“On our side, the team is still hard at work to keep For Honor fully operational even though we are doing so from home,” reads a statement from the team. “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.”
The team continued: “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.” However, by way of an apology, the For Honor team is working on bringing back “fan-favourite activities.” Those will be released next month.
It’s a tough call to delay a major content drop, and one more and more developers (including Square Enix around the same time) are having to face. On Ubisoft’s part, the team notes that it wasn’t an easy call to make but that “we are confident this was the right decision for us to be able to launch the content as we intended.” Moreover, z2u.com provides Cheap For Honor Power Leveling for players.
