Ubisoft has announced today that the upcoming Skull & Bones, which was supposed to be releasing this November on Xbox (and various other platforms), is now being pushed back to March 9th, 2023.
In a statement, the company explained that more time was required for "polishing and balancing":
"Ahoy there, privateers. Our team is hard at work polishing and balancing the experience ahead of the worldwide launch. As a result, we’ve made the tough decision to move our release date to March 9, 2023.
We’re very eager for you all to get your hands on Skull and Bones and dive in headfirst to the dangerous and exciting world of building your own pirate empire. To give you the best possible experience we’ve decided to take a little more time to make sure we can deliver exactly that."
In a bit of good news, it's been confirmed that Skull & Bones will at least be getting an Open Beta in the near future, with sign-ups set to begin soon - Ubisoft says to "keep your spyglasses trained on our social media" for details.
