Ubisoft’s upcoming pirate game Skull and Bones has yet hit another delay and is now posed for a 2020 or 2021 release. Apart from the delay, the developer has also confirmed that the title is also skipping E3 2019 taking place next month because of this very reason. This was announced by the developer via the official Skull and Bones Twitter account.
In the video, the producer of Skull and Bones Karl Luhe explains to gamers that they want more time with the game’s development. The development is going along well however they still want more time with the game so that the final product is in its best form possible. He also explains in the short video announcement that the studio is hard at work at making the best possible game.
Despite Skull and Bones out of the picture for this year’s E3, Ubisoft is hosting a press release during the event and plans to show its upcoming video games planned for 2019 and beyond. Details on the unannounced titles will be made during E3 2019 and we might get to know something about Ubisoft’s plans for the next generation of consoles which is expected to release next year.
We’re going to batten down the hatches and push back on the game’s arrival—this is a challenging news for us all, but it’s what’s needed to make Skull & Bones as awesome as it can be!

Skull and Bones was originally planned for a release in late 2019 or early 2020. A confirmed release date for the title was never revealed and we only had a slight release window hint. It looks like the developers are hard at work in developing the game and it is always a good idea to delay a game slightly rather than releasing a buggy game which ruins the launch.
Ubisoft games are notorious for buggy launches as Assassin’s Creed Unity is the biggest buggy launch in the publisher’s history. It is best that Skull and Bones is developed properly and then released in the market because it is a fresh IP for the publisher so it will either win the hearts of the fans or destroy them with bugs and glitches. We prefer the first one.
