Publisher Ubisoft has announced delays to numerous titles in its 2020 line up, including Watch Dogs: Legion, Ghost Recon Quarantine, and Gods and Monsters.

The news came as part of the company's recent earnings call, and sees titles that were set to release in February and March pushed out to allow for more polish.

"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," said CEO Yves Guillemot.

The games will now release between July and December of next year, with the company adjusting its expected earnings from €2.2 billion down to €1.4 billion.

"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," Guillemot continued.

"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"

The publisher also noted that sales of The Division 2 and Ghost Recon: Breakpoint did not meet expectations.

Skull & Bones is still planned for release in the 2021-2022 fiscal year, while Beyond Good and Evil 2 is yet to have a release date confirmed.

Ubisoft wasn't the only one to announce delays today, as Naughty Dog has pushed the release of The Last of Us Part II by three months.
