Skull & Bones has had its fifth postponement in five years

Skull & Bones, a much-delaystered Ubisoft, has been reignited for four months, extending the game from November to March 2023. The announcement came as the developers announced that the game will receive a beta period in the near future. Details of how to sign up for the beta are expected soon.

This time, Ubisoft said the delay is necessary to provide the best possible experience to players. Although development is complete, the extra four months give the developers the freedom to "polish and balance" the game by utilizing recent playtests.

Skull & Bones is in development at Ubisoft Singapore and was first shown off at E3 2017, back before I received all my gold teeth and adopted my macaw, Polly. It was originally scheduled to release in autumn 2018, but its been delayed so many times it might as well be the subject of a comical sea shanty. Last we heard, it had been due out this November.

Graham narrowed the crows nest just last month to see what PC players will get, and found Skull & Bones will support 4K, ray tracing, and an uncapped FPS. Theres also the clutter slider, which might be useful if youre frustrated by such things.

Over the years, weve had two previews of the game, with Adam captaining his boat shortly after the game was announced, and Alice Bee following up with another look this summer.

Alice couldn''t help but compare Skull & Bones to the Sea Of Thieves other piratical live-service game. I think Ubisofts take needed more faffing about. I think the legacy of previous development in everything they''ve tried to do here, but what Skull & Bones really requires before its release is probably a ruthless remake from an impartial pair of scissors.

Skull & Bones will sail on March 9th, 2023. It will be available on PC on the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store for 50/$60/60. Youll also be able to play on PlayStation 5, current-gen Xboxes, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna.
