Ubisoft's upcoming pirate action-adventure game has been delayed once again, with a new release date set for March 9, 2023.
In a statement posted yesterday, Sept. 28, Ubisoft announced that they would be moving the release date of Skull and Bones. "Our team is hard at work polishing and balancing the experience ahead of the worldwide launch. As a result, we’ve made the tough decision to move our release date to March 9, 2023."
The game was originally set to release in Q3/Q4 2018 but was later pushed to 2019, then again to March 2020. It was then slated for a release during the April 2021–March 2022 fiscal year, only to then be delayed to the April 2022–March 2023 fiscal year. Eventually, Ubisoft announced a release date of Nov. 8, 2022 only for the game to be hit with its most recent delay.
The statement continued by saying, "To give you the best possible experience we’ve decided to take a little more time to make sure we can deliver exactly that."
While the biggest news to come from the announcement was undoubtedly the delay, Ubisoft also revealed that they are planning to hold an open beta for the game "in the near future."
"We’ll share more news on how you can sign up to register soon, so keep your spyglasses trained on our social media for more news and announcements."
