Ubisoft Shares Update Following Skull and Bones Delay


Following the announcement that Skull and Bones would be delayed once again, Ubisoft have shared an update on the game's development.

The update was made via Twitter, in which the Skull and Bones developers offered more information on the game's release date. "Today we'd like to share an update regarding our release date as we made the decision to delay Skull and Bones a little more," the post began.

"Our determination and focus remain the same — offer the best in-game experience possible to our players from day 1. This extra time will help us in providing further polish and balance to our game experience, following your feedback from previous tests."

Skull and Bones was originally set to be released in Q3/Q4 of 2018, though the game was later delayed to 2019 and then to sometime after March 2020. In 2019, it was announced that the game had been pushed back to at least the April 2021–March 2022 fiscal year.

In May 2021, Ubisoft announced a subsequent delay to the April 2022–March 2023 fiscal year. In July 2022, Skull and Bones was given a Nov. 8 release date, only to then be pushed back to March 9, 2023. This most recent delay revealed that the game would be again pushed back, this time to a 2023-2024 release window.

"We also have an array of exciting content coming up on out social channels and ready to be shared with you," the post continued.

"Additional information regarding our new release date and upcoming tests phases will be shared with you all very soon, so be sure to stay tuned and follow the conversation."

The post ended by thanking fans for their continued support of Skull and Bones.
