Skull and Bones is an online pirate action game being developed by Ubisoft Singapore. The game, due to be published by Ubisoft, was announced all the way back at E3 2017 with a trailer that showcased plenty of naval combat, online pirate comradery, ship upgrades and more.
Since E3 2018, Skull and Bones has been largely missing in action, with Ubisoft stating in 2020 that the game’s direction was being changed and that would require delays and additional studio help to get the game together. Since there, it’s been all quiet on the seas, with fans of the ship combat from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag waiting patiently for a chance to play a game inspired by the sailing sections of that game.
Could 2022 be the year of Skull and Bones, however? It’s been a long enough wait, and the question remains, when is the Skull and Bones release date? Below is everything we know about the game, including its trailers, and when we’re likely to get our hands on it.
Skull and Bones release date
When is Skull and Bones coming out? The Skull and Bones release date is set for March 9, 2022.
The news was confirmed in an announcement just a few months before the game was set to be released. This was actually a delay as the game was set to hit on November 8, 2022.
