Skull & Bones, the upcoming pirate game from Ubisoft, will not meet its fiscal year 2019/20 release window. Instead, the game will now launch in a vaguer after 2019/20 window.
In an update on the game’s official Twitter account, the development team stated that its focus remains on quality first and the delay is “needed to make Skull & Bones as awesome as it can be.”
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!

Ubisoft remains fully devoted to this exciting journey to bring you this brand-new game and we’re confident Skull & Bones is going to be amazing.”
