Skull and Bones anchored down, delayed again

Share

Ironically, we haven't heard much about this game since last year's E3, therefore it was nearly a given that the game had - unofficially - been delayed. In a video posted to Twitter, producer Karl Luhe tells fans to "rest assured that we are working as hard as ever to make sure the game is going to be as great as possible, and quality remains our number one focus".

Ubisoft's big pirate adventure, Skull & Bones, had already been delayed from its original launch in 2018, and it looks like it won't be out in 2019, either. Now, it will release in the 2020/2021 fiscal year.

First unveiled in 2017, Skull & Bones was playable to press and the public at E3 the following year. This means the game will not be released until at least April 1st, 2020. The remaining three are unannounced titles that will be released in Q4 FY2020, which is between January 1st and March 31st, 2020. Watch Dogs 3? Splinter Cell? We played it two years ago, and it was good at the time. Despite this, the game failed to meet the publisher's expectations on console due to a "more competitive environment than expected". Ubisoft hasn't really promoted it much since its reveal a couple years ago. There has also been a 31% increase in the amount of eSports hours of watched time over the last 12 months in this game alone.
