If you didn’t know by now, Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones has been delayed, again. Along with some recent project cancellations from the French video game company, Skull and Bones’ release was also postponed, with the game set to arrive later this year or in 2024.
While we won’t get to have pirate adventures anytime soon, the developers have unveiled new gameplay footage of Skull and Bones, which showcases the title’s narrative. The nearly 30 minutes of gameplay showcases what players could have received. However, for now, it seems like players will have to wait until Ubisoft announces a new release date.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 still happening, according to Ubisoft
As part of Ubisoft’s recent cancellations, projects involving franchises such as Prince of Persia and Tom Clancy have been shelved. However, fans fearing a similar outcome for Beyond Good and Evil 2 can heave a sigh of relief, as a Ubisoft spokesperson confirmed that the project is still happening.
While the project was first announced to be in development over a decade ago, fans didn’t receive anything until E3 2017, when Ubisoft unveiled the game’s trailer. However, since then, we haven’t learnt much about the game, with many fearing that a cancellation is on the cards for the title, which has spent nearly 15 years in development. In the end, it seems like Ubisoft isn’t losing hope just yet, as the game continues to be worked on at the company’s Montpellier studio.
Ubisoft stock takes a dip following recent project cancellations

The drop saw the share price decrease from EUR 24.25 to EUR 19.25. At the time of writing, the stock is priced at EUR 20.35.
