Ubisoft delays Skull & Bones again and won't show it at E3 2019

Ubisoft Delays Skull & Bones to April 2020

Additionally, the game won't be shown at E3 2019, which takes place next month.

Revealed via Ubisoft's 2018-2019 financial earnings report, the company's 2019-2020 financial targets of net bookings of around €2,185 million ($2.4 billion USD) will be led by Ghost Recon Breakpoint and the three other AAA titles that are now unknown. In a video posted to Twitter, producer Karl Luhe tells fans to "rest assured that we are working as hard as ever to make sure the game is going to be as great as possible, and quality remains our number one focus".

For a game that looked an bad lot like a rehash of the good bits from Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Skull & Bones is taking a very long time to arrive in stores and has been delayed yet again. Once again, the title's nebulous release date has been delayed. This means we can probably expect it sometime between April 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021. The Skull and Bones Twitter account wasn't much more helpful, although it did confirm in various tweets that there are now no target dates for beta testing or release. We played it two years ago, and it was good at the time. Uplay sales increased tenfold on PC compared to The Division.

In contrast, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege performed as expected, growing for its third successive year. More information at E3 and gamescom this year seems likely.
