Ubisoft delays Skull & Bones again and won't show it at E3 2019

Additionally, the game won't be shown at E3 2019, which takes place next month. Then, it was delayed to the financial year 2019/20, and now it has been delayed until 'after 2019/2020'. The news came from an earning's call, before the game's producer, Karl Luhe, confirmed the report in a video message from the game's official Twitter (via Gematsu).

If you were holding out for Ubisoft Singapore's grand pirate adventure, Skull & Bones, don't get your hopes up. 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.

First unveiled in 2017, Skull & Bones was playable to press and the public at E3 the following year. Skull and Bones will be released sometime after April 2020, then. One of those is Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

Since all three are slated for Q4, each will be released before the quarter ends on March 31, 2020. The Skull and Bones Twitter account wasn't much more helpful, although it did confirm in various tweets that there are now no target dates for beta testing or release. "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. We had some small hope yesterday that a new Splinter Cell was in development, but it turned out it was just a Ubisoft dev "joking" around.

In contrast, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege performed as expected, growing for its third successive year. Ubisoft hasn't really promoted it much since its reveal a couple years ago.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey has performed better than Assassin's Creed Origins did during the same period of its release.
