Skull & Bones again postponed for months, going to open beta first

September 29, 2022 | Andreas Betsche

Ubisoft Singapore’s prestige project and problem child Skull and Bones has not yet reached a safe haven yet. Contrary to what was announced just recently, the pirate adventure will no longer be released in November 2022 but only on March 9, 2023.

Although the development has already been completed, according to Ubisoft, they want to continue working on the quality of the game. In addition, they plan to address feedback from players as Skull and Bones will start an open beta program before the release.

It is unclear why this long delay is occurring on such short notice, but it seems possible that mixed feedback from the players and the press on the gameplay has led to Skull and Bones going into dry dock again. For fans waiting for the game, the postponement is another setback after many negative headlines following the development. Let’s just hope Ubisoft manages to use the additional time wisely.
