Time To Walk The Plank

Skull And Bones
Ubisoft has recently had a Dev stream showing more of the game and includes some conversations regarding the game. It is possible that the delay is only a month or two, however, you would have thought if they were confident of that then why not say so? The press release states
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 playtests. 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. Skull and Bones will now be released early 2023-24.
If the delay is to polish it and deliver a better gameplay experience the press release says then it is welcome news. We would all prefer games to release in fantastic quality rather than be subject to bad reviews. It is now up to Ubisoft to deliver on that promise.
Have a look at the latest DevStream from January 13th.
Skull and Bones is set to launch on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store. The Console release is for XBox Series S/X and Playstation 5.
