Pirates, as everyone knows, do not follow any agreements – and that matches Skull & Bones fairly nicely, as a result of Ubisoft’s open-world journey is postponed once more, for the sixth time by now. In a financial report Ubisoft justifies the discharge postponement with its personal declare to ship the absolute best expertise:
We determined to postpone the discharge to supply a extra polished and balanced expertise. Skull & Bones will now be launched someday between 2023 and 2024.
To keep away from misunderstanding: March 9, 2023 was the unique new date Ubisoft settled on after the final postponement in September 2022. Now the discharge strikes indefinitely into the present 12 months – whether or not we even have to attend till the autumn enterprise is written within the stars.
But not less than you may get an open beta to get an concept of the present state of the game your self. There’s no concrete date for this but, although.
Unrest round Skull & Bones
Skull & Bones has been going by a tough growth historical past for years. Originally, the game was timed round 2018, however Ubisoft made the choice to reprogram giant components of the game till the game in the end appeared in 2022 in a brand new guise. However, the preliminary impressions of the followers remained restrained right here as nicely – together with ours, by the best way:

Skull & Bones depends on controversial game design selections deep in its personal DNA. For instance, away from a number of social hub worlds, you by no means depart your individual ship, which naturally makes boarding and capturing enemy ships a relatively boring affair. Especially in comparison with its predecessor Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, the game lacks options that many followers wish to see – and the extra 4 to 5 years of growth will not change that.
On the opposite hand, nobody has been in a position to play the brand new model of the game but. So it stays thrilling how Skull & Bones will in the end really feel.
What do you suppose? Are you continue to hoping for a contented ending? Or have you ever written off the game?
