Skull & Bones Developer Claims The Game Lacks Depth In Every Area

We've been pretty excited for Ubisoft's Skull & Bones for a long time now, and we got even more excited when it finally got a release date of November 8th, 2022 this month, but it seems not everyone at Ubisoft is fully confident in it.

According to a new Kotaku report, multiple people who have worked on the game aren't sure it'll be a big success, and one developer apparently told the outlet that every part of it lacks depth. Here's the snippet from the report:

"According to one developer, there is little to the pirate-ship game beyond what was already shown when it reemerged in a showcase livestream earlier this month. Despite a bevy of resource-gathering survival sim mechanics, they said each individual part of the game lacked depth."

To be fair, the snippets of gameplay that have been revealed so far have looked pretty enjoyable, but it remains to be seen whether the game will have long-lasting appeal. Based on this one developer's opinion, it doesn't sound like it.

It is just one person's opinion, though, so let's not get too downhearted just yet. Skull & Bones will be with us in just a few short months, and we'll hopefully be able to provide a pre-launch review so you can decide whether it's worth your hard-earned $70 or not. That's right, Ubisoft has moved to a $70 base price starting with Skull & Bones!
