Ubisoft has announced that Skull and Bones won’t be released until March 9, 2023, marking another delay for the piracy and naval warfare game that’s already grown infamous for its decade-long development cycle. The delay seems to be a pretty recent decision, as Ubisoft Singapore had promised that the game would be out on November 8 for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Stadia, and Amazon Luna just a few weeks ago during its Ubisoft Forward showcase, which aired on September 10.
