During the financial conference call related to fiscal year 2017-18, Ubisoft’s Chief Financial Officer Alain Martinez announced that Skull and Bones won’t make its expected release in the current fiscal year.
This means that the pirate-based game will launch in the next fiscal year, and will hit the shelves bt March 31st, 2020. According to Martinez, the decision has been taken to give the development team more time to work on the title.
Considering that we haven’t seen much about the title recently, this probably shouldn’t surprise. This doesn’t mean that we won’t see the game at E3 next month, of course.
Martinez also explained later in the call that the industry has evolved, and not just Ubisoft, but also other companies are taking a lot more care for each release, and don’t hesitate to postpone games when “they think that there is real value for it.”
Skull and Bones is expected to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you want to read more about the game, you can check out some details from last year, and a second article with more info. You can also enjoy a gameplay video and a batch of screenshots.
