After nine delays, Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones finally has a release date

Skull and Bones has finally received a release date

After years of development issues, Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones (S&B) finally has a release date. The game will be coming to PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5 on February 16th 2024.

While the game’s development started shortly after the release of Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Skull and Bones’ long development cycle has moved the game from being a PS4/Xbox One title to a current-generation release. S&B is a game about piracy, sailing, and naval combat.

Skull and Bones was originally revealed in 2017, though its development started years earlier. So far, the game has been delayed nine times. Now, the game appears to be ready for prime time.

Right now, gamers can sign up for Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones closed beta. This beta will run between December 15th and 18th on PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5. During the beta, gamers will be able to play Skull and Bones for 6 hours. This time limit will only count when you are in a gaming session. However, idling in menus during gameplay will count towards your total time played.

On PC, S&B will be available through Ubisoft Connect and the Epic Games Store. The game will feature an in-game benchmark, ray tracing support, DLSS/FSR support, and support and uncapped framerate. The game will be able to run on graphics cards at low-end as Nvidia’s GTX 1060 or AMD’s Radeon RX 5500 XT. That said, an RTX 2070 or RX 5700 XT is recommended for 1080p 60 FPS gameplay at high settings.
