For a game that looked an terrible lot like a rehash of the good bits from Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Skull & Bones is taking a very long time to arrive in stores and has been delayed yet again. The good news is that Ubisoft is planning to release four AAA titles by the end of fiscal year 2020, so before the end of March 2020. This means we can probably expect it sometime between April 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021. Watch Dogs 3? Splinter Cell? "That's the type of experience we want people to have, so it's accessible and people can understand it", Justin Farren, the game's creative director at the time, told Kotaku. One of the biggest drivers of this was the release of Tom Clancy's The Division 2. More information at E3 and gamescom this year seems likely.
