Skull and Bones release date delay isn’t all bad news

Games


Ubisoft has announced yet another delay for its swashbuckling action-adventure game Skull and Bones – but it’s not all bad news. 

Skull and Bones‘ release date has been pushed back to March 9, 2023, but Ubisoft has announced an open beta to smooth things over. In the past month, some PC players (including me) got into a playtest with a very strict NDA, but the open beta will throw open the doors for everyone and presumably across platforms. 

We were expecting Skull and Bones to release on November 8, so it’s a significant delay. That said, the holiday season is a busy period for game releases, and competition is stiff. But with God of War Ragnarok, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet all out around the same time, perhaps pushing the date back is for the best.
