Not for the first time (far from it, in act), Ubisoft recently announced that its long-in-development multiplayer pirate game Skull and Bones has been delayed yet again. Previously set to launch for PC and consoles in March, the game was recently pushed back to an indeterminate date.
Following that, it seems like those who pre-ordered the game are being issued by refunds. As reported by users on Reddit and Twitter (via PlayStation Lifestyle), it seems like Sony has begun issuing automatic refunds for the game to those who pre-purchased it. Meanwhile, it seems like purchasing it is also no longer an option on the PlayStation Store, while there is no separate page for the game’s Deluxe Edition to be found either.
Of course, given that the game has been delayed to an as yet unconfirmed date, users being issued refunds for their pre-orders isn’t exactly the strangest occurrence in the world. Ubisoft has said that Skull and Bones will launch sometime in fiscal year 2023-24, which runs from April this year to March of next year.
Skull and Bones is in development for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
