Skull and Bones has been delayed yet again by Ubisoft, and will now be released in 2023.
The game Skull and Bones was supposed to be released on November 8, 2022.
Skull and Bones appears to have been delayed yet again, according to a new press release from Ubisoft. This is the fifth time the game has been delayed, demonstrating how difficult the development cycle for this pirate, open-world RPG has been.
The game's new release date has been set for March 9, 2023, on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation, Stadia, and PC. The game will not be released on last-generation consoles (PS4, Xbox One). The good news is that Ubisoft will hold an open beta before the game's global release to allow players to immerse themselves in the world of Skull and Bones.
Ubisoft reiterates that the game's development is complete at this point, and the extra time will be used to further polish and balance the experience based on player feedback.
Delaying Skull and Bones by Ubisoft is Probably the Best Move.
While a delay is not always well received in the community, it is ultimately in the best interests of the community. A delay gives the developers more time to iron out the kinks in the game and fine-tune the experience before it goes live.
The game has been through the ringer, having been cancelled, brought back, and delayed several times during development. It appeared that we would finally get the game this year, but it appears that we will have to wait a few more months to sail the open seas and go plundering.
The community speculates that publishers want to avoid clashing with the titan that is God of War Ragnarok, which is set to release in November. While this is all speculation at this point, leaving Santa Monica Studio's magnum opus may be a wise move in order to maximise the game's success.
