Skull and Bones has been pushed back yet again. Ubisoft confirmed the ship sim is now targeting a release date sometime between 2022 to 2023
The latest Skull and Bones delay was confirmed in Ubisoft’s full-year earnings report for 2020. Ubisoft boasted its robust product lineup for 2021 including Far Cry 6, Rainbow Six Quarantine, Rider Republic, The Division Heartland, and Roller Champions, but also snuck in the new Skull and Bones delay into its report.
Skull and Bones was originally announced at E3 2017 and was set to be released in 2018. Skull and Bones was later delayed to 2019, then 2020, and again to 2021.
It was announced as a standalone game and seemed to build on top of the popularity of the ship combat gameplay from the Assassin’s Creed series. The game’s creative director Elisabeth Pellen announced that the development team has expanded and there is a new vision for the game.
Ubisoft Singapore is in charge of the project but is joined by Ubisoft studios in Berlin, Chengdu, Kieve, Paris, and the Phillippines to help fulfill this expanded scope.
Ubisoft is currently presenting its full-year earnings so check back with IGN as we hear more details about the company’s 2021-2022 plans from CEO Yves Guillemot.
