'Skull And Bones' Delayed For The Fifth Time

'Skull And Bones' Delayed For The Fifth Time

Ubisoft's Skull And Bones has been delayed, yet again, due to player feedback.

It’s happened again. Yet another game has been delayed to 2023. It’s not an unusual thing to happen in this industry. As more studios try to avoid crunch, development time has typically become lengthier but there does seem to be a disproportionate number of delays in recent weeks. Some industry analysts are suggesting that God of War Ragnarök has other games running for the hills. Whether this is true or not, we don’t know. What we do know is that you shouldn’t expect to play Skull And Bones this year.

Speaking of God of War Ragnarök, check out this trailer below.

Ubisoft’s Skull And Bones has officially been delayed for a fifth time and will now release on 9 March, 2023, on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Amazon Luna, and PC via the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store. Alternatively, players can also subscribe to Ubisoft+ on PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna to access the game on day one.

Skull And Bones has perhaps one of the lengthiest development periods in recent years. The game was originally due to release in 2018 before resurfacing earlier this year with a November 2022 release date. Developers have now confirmed though that they will use this extra time to “further polish and balance the experience using players’ feedback from our technical tests and Insider Programme which happened over the past two weeks.”

It sounds like players had more than a few problems with the test build. Ubisoft further revealed that “an Open Beta will be held ahead of the game's worldwide launch to ensure players get a firsthand look at the dangerous world of Skull And Bones. Players will have the opportunity to discover the game's unique take on the piracy fantasy, its gritty naval combat as well as the immersive and beautiful seas of the 17th century Indian Ocean.”
