The waters in Skull and Bones have been rough on Ubisoft as the game that was originally planned for a 2018 release still hasn’t hit the physical or digital shelves. In fact, the upcoming pirate adventure has been delayed a whopping six times. Now, another Skull and Bones release date is on the horizon and it is sooner than you may think.
From zero to hero, Skull and Bones allows you to start off as a regular person and grow your smuggling empire. Craft, take on risky contracts, and sail the seas, all while engaging in thrilling naval battles to protect your property and most importantly, your reputation.
Skull and Bones is targeting a February 2024 release date
According to Insider Gaming, Skull and Bones has a release date of February 16, 2024. It is also claimed that the game has gone through “extensive playtests as of late, with the developers having its latest test last week.”
Pre-orders for Skull and Bones are live, with a Standard Edition and a Premium Edition available. The Standard Edition has a $59.99/£49.99 price tag and includes the base game.
The Premium Edition goes for $89.99/£74.99 and is packed with extra goodies which are:
- Premium Bonus Pack – Includes the Ballad of Bloody Bones Collection
- Missions – Includes 2 additional missions
- Artbook/Soundtrack – Includes the official digital artbook and soundtrack
- Smuggler Pass Token
- Base Game
Alternatively, if you’re a Ubisoft+ subscriber, you can hop into the Premium Edition of the game on day one. Ubisoft+ is a subscription service, allowing you access to a whole library of titles for $14.99/£12.99 a month.
As we’ve seen before, Skull and Bones has been delayed numerous times already, so let’s hope that the February 16, 2024 release date is final.
