Ubisoft has announced that Skull and Bones will now release on 9th March 2023. The game was originally supposed to be released in November of this year. However, Ubisoft now says that the time will be used to polish the game even further.
In a press release, Ubisoft said, “While the game development is finished at this stage, the extra time will be used to further polish and balance the experience using players’ feedback from our Technical tests and Insider Program which happened over the past two weeks. This is the right decision both for our players and for the long-term success of the game as 9th March 2023 provides for a suitable release window for this very unique new brand.”
While Skull and Bones has been delayed, an Open Beta will be held ahead of the game’s worldwide launch. The developers have confirmed that players will have the opportunity to discover the game’s take on the piracy fantasy, its combat as well as the “immersive and beautiful seas” of the 17th-century Indian Ocean.
When the game releases next year, it will be available on Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Amazon Luna, and Windows PC through the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store. The game will also launch on Ubisoft+ Day 1 which is available on PC.
