Ubisoft delays Skull & Bones again

18 May 2019

On the bright side, Ubisoft won't have any absence of games to show at E3 this year.

The game will also be skipping E3 2019 as the team continues to "batten down the hatches" on development. The Skull and Bones Twitter account wasn't much more helpful, although it did confirm in various tweets that there are now no target dates for beta testing or release.

As for Skull & Bones, the reason it is not expected to release until after March 2020 is due to the fact that Ubisoft's pirate game has been delayed past Ubisoft's 2019-2020 fiscal year, which began on April 1, 2019 and will end on March 31, 2020. The bad news is that Skull & Bones has been delayed again.

Originally set for an autumn 2018 release, Skull and Bones was pushed into the 2019/2020 fiscal year. One of those is Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

Figuring out what the other three AAA titles are will be the new gripping question as we know Assassin's Creed is taking a year off.

A new Watch Dogs game is heavily rumoured for an E3 appearance, as is a return to the Splinter Cell franchise. Throw in The Division 2, and 2019 is looking solid towards the usual Q4 big budget release from the French company. The game had a great launch, and hit records for digital distribution, player engagement and season pass adoption within the company. Ubisoft hasn't really promoted it much since its reveal a couple years ago.
