Skull & Bones is a title we’ve seen announced and like Dead Island 2, we don’t know the state of the game. The last time we saw anything from it was last summer where it was still in Alpha. The game has suffered a troubled development cycle and it’s still too early to get hopes up about the state of the game.
However, an article recently published by TheGamer states things could be indeed looking up for the project. It appears Ubisoft is pleased with the current progress of Skull and Bones. Frederick Duguet, the company’s Chief Financial Officer, mentioned he was very happy and development is going well during the recent earnings report.
So What Now For Skull & Bones?
We know the focus has changed more than once, receiving heavy reworks. Skull & Bones was originally set to be an RPG but with online multiplayer. When development reset it went the route of an exploration game instead. It received yet another reset and is becoming more of a survival-based title. So it’s hard to gauge what the final product will be, especially with the lack of updates for some time now.
Skull & Bones debuted way back at E3 2017 so it is a few years into multiple development cycles. As of now, it is being worked on by Ubisoft Singapore. Unfortunately, it received multiple delays and development resets. However, it’s reported to launch within the next financial year unless further delays fall upon it. So what do you think about this? Were you waiting for this or have you lost interest? Are you expecting to see this launch or never see a release? For gamers on PC, Stadia, and even Xbox this may be one worth trying once it makes it on Ubisoft+. This may be a game that splits opinions if it eventually releases but we’d love to hear from you!
