I highly doubt that the crew/WD was delayed to fix bugs.

I think it was delayed b/c UBI wanted to fine tune both games before releasing it.

Though Maybe if its was one of the two games that needed bug fixing than I would believe it.

Its highly likely that both games would need bug fixing at the same time.

think about it!!

I think they delayed them for sales. Yes, they extra development time will be nice but sales is my opinion

Sales is definitely one of the reason for the delay.

But by the time UBI release WD/CREW in spring of next year there are going to be other open world game to compete with.

So it'd be smart to add more features in WD/CREW.

I don't think it going to hurt console buyers who already pre-order to get this game and plenty of titles that they can still play during the early release...
