Ubisoft is now positioning it for “after 2019-20”.
In its recent year-end fiscal report, Ubisoft confirmed that it had three unannounced triple-A titles that would release by March 2020. While we can probably expect these to be announced at E3 2019, what about the naval combat title Skull and Bones? Unfortunately, it seems to have been pushed back.
Skull and Bones was meant to release sometime in the 2019/2020 fiscal year. This would have placed its release somewhere before March 31st, 2020. Ubisoft has now postponed it to after “2019-20”, which indicates a release date somewhere between April 1st, 2020 and March 31st, 2021.
The development team also revealed on Twitter that it would “batten down the hatches” and keep at work on the game as it pushes back the game’s release. Producer Karl Luhe confirmed that the game wouldn’t be at E3 2019. However, he also assured fans that the team was working hard to ensure the final product meets expectations.
Ubisoft will be at E3 2019, and host a presser for its upcoming releases on June 10th, 1 PM PDT. Stay tuned for more details on the unannounced titles (and the publisher’s potential next-gen plans).
We’re going to batten down the hatches and push back on the game’s arrival—this is a challenging news for us all, but it’s what’s needed to make Skull & Bones as awesome as it can be!
Our focus remains on quality first and we’re grateful for your undying support ☠️⚔️ pic.twitter.com/ZCt85tY3TG
