Skull & Bones Delayed and Won’t Be at E3

Skull & Bones Delayed and Won’t Be at E3

Earlier this year Ubisoft teamed up with Atlas Entertainment to announce a show based on the game, and given the rather long delay to the title the TV show may be out before the game.

Ubisoft has also said that the game will not be appearing at this year's E3, in June.

Ubisoft's pirate combat game Skull & Bones has been delayed again. 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.

Ubisoft doesn't have a new release date for the game right now, it tweeted on Wednesday.

Originally set for an autumn 2018 release, Skull and Bones was pushed into the 2019/2020 fiscal year. One will be the very recently announced Ghost Recon Breakpoint, but the others are complete mysteries. We played it two years ago, and it was good at the time. One of the biggest drivers of this was the release of Tom Clancy's The Division 2.

A new Watch Dogs game is heavily rumoured for an E3 appearance, as is a return to the Splinter Cell franchise. Uplay sales increased tenfold on PC compared to The Division. The game has accumulated more than €1 billion in related net bookings, something that might not have necessarily been expected after the game's "quiet launch". More information at E3 and gamescom this year seems likely.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey has performed better than Assassin's Creed Origins did during the same period of its release.
