Skull and Bones PS5 PlayStation 5 1

Ubisoft’s scant update for the perpetually delayed Skull and Bones during its livestream this week was to confirm that a new beta is on the way later this year. That test, however, will not be available on consoles like the PS5. News first emerged on Insider Gaming, who was contacted by playtesters claiming the latest beta is only available on PC. It then corroborated that information by spotting that sign-ups currently exclude consoles on the French publisher’s official website.

A developer on the game’s official Discord has since clarified that the beta was “never intended to be for console”, despite registrations previously including PS5 as an option. It’s just another sign that this project may not be progressing as planned, with its previously planned November 2022 release date pushed back indefinitely late last year.
