For a minute there, it looked like we would be setting sail with Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones in March. Alas, it’s still stuck out at sea.
During a financial statement made this week, Ubisoft has announced that the game has been delayed yet again, set to arrive sometime within the next fiscal year between now and April 2024.
“Players will be able to discover the beauty of Skull and Bones in the upcoming beta phase. The additional time has already paid off and brought impressive improvements to its quality, which has been confirmed by recent play tests,” the company announced in a statement. “We believe players will be positively surprised by its evolution. We have decided to postpone its release in order to have more time to showcase a much more polished and balanced experience and to build awareness.”
The company noted that it suffered losses from lackluster sales of Mario & Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and Just Dance 2023, which has led to the cancellation of three more unannounced games. This joins four projects that were cancelled back in 2022. No word yet if that include the rumored Splinter Cell remake that’s been making the rounds.
The company still has Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora still on deck to arrive before March 2024, along with an unannounced game that we’ll hopefully learn more about in the months ahead. As for Beyond Good & Evil 2…well, it’s not dead, so there’s that. But no idea what’s happening with it. We’ll have to see what the company has planned in the months ahead.
