Skull & Bones PS5

Oh no. Ubisoft's multiplayer pirate action game, Skull & Bones, has been delayed once more, with Ubisoft officially announcing the news on its website.

The game, which was scheduled for launch on 8th November, will be pushed back yet again. It's now pencilled in for release on 9th March, 2023.

The team made the "tough decision" in order to spend more time "polishing and balancing the experience ahead of the worldwide launch", the blog post reads. The extra few months will allow the studio to deliver "the best possible experience".

The silver lining is that an open beta test will be taking place in the near future. No details have been provided yet, but considering the game was mere weeks away from launch, we imagine we'll hear more about that very soon.
