Skull & Bones is the ambitious upcoming pirate game from Ubisoft Singapore, which will see players take to exciting ship battles, unimaginable gameplay mechanics and even some of the best-looking graphics in recent years. A delay has been made, which will see the game removed from 2018’s line-up.
If you’ve been waiting for the moment to let your inner pirate out with Ubisoft’s upcoming title Skull & Bones, it looks like your wait may have gotten a little bit longer. Today, Ubisoft and Ubisoft Singapore have confirmed that their ambitious ship-battling, swashbuckling, and pirate-filled game has come to a delay, pushing it out of 2018 into the spring of 2019.
You can read Ubisoft’s confirmation down below:
Skull and Bones will launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC during Ubisoft’s next fiscal year (from April 1st 2019 to March 31st, 2020).
The extra time will allow the team at Ubisoft Singapore to deliver on their ambition to create the ultimate pirate game.
Among the games to be at E3, Skull & Bones could very well be making a rather strong appearance, giving Ubisoft plenty of room to evolve the game, kink out any bugs, and hammer out any mechanics that could use some tidying up.
In their statement about the delay, Ubisoft has confirmed, however, their sales remain strong for their recently released titles, content releases, and plenty more spread across titles such as Far Cry 5, which saw more than 310 million players within the first week of release. Following behind Far Cry 5 in exceeding expectations is Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, which sees more than 30 million registered players joining its ranks.
The publisher confirmed that Rainbow Six Siege holds a record engagement in fourth-quarter 2017-18 and esports viewership up by approximately 300.0% for the Six Invitational. With games such as The Division 2, Skull & Bones, and The Crew 2 in the works, we can only state the obvious: Ubisoft is setting up for a strong ending to the 2018 year and could be seeing one of their best years on record already.
