In fact, the pirate MMO Skull & Bones should appear in the 2019/2020 financial year. But Ubisoft has postponed it further in its most recent financial report. There will be no release of Skull & Bones before April 2020.
When should Skull & Bones come? In fact, Skull & Bones was scheduled for 2018. Then it was postponed to the 2019/2020 fiscal year, so it should have been published by the end of March 2020 at the latest – probably also a release date in 2019 .
But now Ubisoft has again sent Skull & Bones back to the current financial report for the financial year 2018/2019.
When will it come now? According to Ubisoft, Skull & Bones can only be expected after 2019/2020. It would be the case as early as April 2020 and at the latest by the end of March 2021.
Why is it so late? The reason given at the time of the first move is that it takes even longer to give the players an even more thrilling experience. On the other hand, Ubisoft has not said anything specific about the current delay.
So what else is expected from Ubisoft? Ubisoft is in the business year 2019/2020 correctly in the question. You want to publish a total of 4 AAA titles, then games with a limited budget. So far only the new Ghost Recon Breakpoint has been announced. Perhaps a new Assassin Creed set-up with Viking is also on the market.
So it's Skull & Bones? Skull and Bones was born from the idea of creating the fantastic naval battles of Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, a game in its own right. Basically, you are playing your pirate ship, sailing through the oceans in search of prey.
Naval battles are even colder than in Assassin's Creed and, according to the developers, refueling the ship is an important part of motivation and progression.
At the GamesCom 208 we already had a naval battle
