While development "is finished" Ubisoft still needs more time to "polish and balance" Skull and Bones
Less than two months before its planned November 8th release date, Ubisoft has officially delayed Skull and Bones, not because the game is unfinished, but because Ubisoft needs time to address the player feedback that they have recieved from the game's technical tests and insider programs.
Now, Skull and Bones is due to release on March 9th 2023, with the PC version of the game arriving through both Ubisoft Connect and the Epic Games Store. Below is what Ubisoft had to say about the game's delay in their press release on the matter.
While the game development is finished at this stage, the extra time will be used to further polish and balance the experience using players’ feedback from our technical tests and Insider Program which happened over the past two weeks. This is the right decision both for our players and for the long-term success of the game as March 9, 2023 provides for a suitable release window for this very unique new brand.
Skull and Bones was announced in 2017, and since then the game has been delayed and delayed again. Originally, the game was due to launch in 2018, and now the game is missing its planned 2022 release window.
Ubisoft has confirmed that they will be hosting an Open Beta for Skull and Bones before its official launch, giving gamers on all platforms a chance to try Ubisoft's new pirate game before it becomes officially available to purchase.
