Skull and Bones Not Being Released Until After March 2020


Revealed via Ubisoft's 2018-2019 financial earnings report, the company's 2019-2020 financial targets of net bookings of around €2,185 million ($2.4 billion USD) will be led by Ghost Recon Breakpoint and the three other AAA titles that are now unknown.

Ubisoft doesn't have a new release date for the game right now, it tweeted on Wednesday. The vague "after 2019/20" refers to financial periods, as opposed to calendar years, meaning the earliest Skull & Bones might now launch is April 2020.

We've got E3 coming up very soon and Ubisoft has already given us a good idea of what to expect from them in 2019.

For a game that looked an bad lot like a rehash of the good bits from Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Skull & Bones is taking a very long time to arrive in stores and has been delayed yet again.

KitGuru Says: Ubisoft has enough big releases in the works that delaying Skull & Bones won't be an issue financially.

You'd be forgiven if the title Skull and Bones doesn't immediately set off bells of recognition. One of those is Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which will be released on October 4th.

I'm still kind of keen on Skull and Bones.

In terms of the company's successes, March 2019 was a record month for "overall audience, activity, and play time" across consoles and PC platforms. Watch Dogs 3? Splinter Cell? The number of players has grown by 40% over the previous year to reach more than 45 million.
