Skull & Bones Co-Director Leaves Ubisoft After 15 Years

Ubisoft's Skull & Bones has suffered a notoriously slow development process, with suggestions that it had been rebooted in 2020 and was still "struggling to take shape" in 2021, and now its co-director has also left the company.

In a message on LinkedIn, Antoine Henry thanked his co-workers and teased "exciting new adventures". His profile shows that he worked as an Associate Game Director on Skull & Bones between 2014 and 2018, and then again in 2021, and he's also recently been working on Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Here's what he had to say:

"Goodbye Ubisoft! After nearly 15 years, today was my last day. I'm thankful for the people I've met and what they brought me professionally and personally. Hopefully I was able to give back a little bit. On to new exciting adventures very soon!"

Back in July, Ubisoft informed Kotaku that the team is "proud of the work they’ve accomplished on the project since their last update with production just passing Alpha, and are excited to share more details when the time is right."

It's still seemingly slated for a release in fiscal 2022-23, which would put it anywhere between April 2022 and March 2023, but with no sign of it releasing anytime soon, we wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if it gets delayed again.
