Announced at E3 2017, Skull & Bones is the first game led by Ubisoft Singapore. Planned for a release at the end of 2018, it has been delayed 4 years in a row; the last one was left in 2022/2023.
Ubisoft confirmed in September 2020 that it was in “full production with a new vision”, but that it would not be seen until 2021; now even later.
Confirmed in an exclusive from VGC, new creative director Elisabeth Pellen said that Ubisoft Singapore had “dreamed of something greater“and that the fans -back then- would see the game in 2021.
But in 2020, the head of Ubisoft Singapore, responsible for Skull & Bones, was also fired for the abuse cases.
Even so, Skull & Bones continues with its development. How and when will we see it? That is up to Ubisoft alone.
