Ubisoft Delays Skull & Bones to April 2020

The company revealed during its latest financial earnings that it still has three more unannounced triple-A games coming within the next fiscal year, teeing up a likely set of E3 2019 reveals. Once again, the title's nebulous release date has been delayed.

"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!" That means the earliest we'll see the game is April 2020.

Ubisoft's pirate game, Skull & Bones, has been delayed for a second time. Then, it was delayed to the financial year 2019/20, and now it has been delayed until 'after 2019/2020'.

Instead, he has promoted deregulation of the energy sector, which the president says will foster economic growth. Along with the humor, the mayor also tried some tough talk: "They're scared of the truth", he declared.

The good news is that there will be four new AAA games released before the end of fiscal year 2020, which is the end of March 2020.

"You may have heard that the Skull & Bones release date has been pushed back and we will not be at E3 2019", producer Karl von der Luhe said in a video message. One will be the very recently announced Ghost Recon Breakpoint, but the others are complete mysteries. Ubisoft hasn't really promoted it much since its reveal a couple years ago.

In terms of the company's successes, March 2019 was a record month for "overall audience, activity, and play time" across consoles and PC platforms. We know that there won't be a new Assassin's Creed title amongst them, but will one of them be the elusive and often-rumoured Splinter Cell?
