    In this week of delayed games, Ubisoft seemed like it did not want to be left out and announced that its pirate game Skull & Bones will be delayed as well.

    “Ubisoft has decided to give itself more time to develop Skull & Bones to offer players an even more engaging experience,” Ubisoft said in a press release.

    In a blog post update today, Creative Director of Skull & Bones Justin A. Farren had the following to say to the fans:
    As a reminder, Skull & Bones was announced during last year's E3 as a customizable pirate experience taking place during the Golden Age of Pirates by choosing your own captain, recruiting your crew and sailing the rough seas to join the ruthless struggle for supremacy in an open world game. The game was then expected to release sometime in Fall 2018.


    Farren also added that the team will showcase some of what they have been hard at work on during the last twelve months during E3 2018. The company announced that the game will be delayed to next fiscal year that is between April 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020.

    I kinda remember sea of thieves on this one. Ubisoft has started having sea fetishes.

    If
    Bethesda = shooters + savages,
    Then
    Ubisoft = seas + pirates

    Looks like someone is seeking for redemption of glory and correction of failures.

    I'm not a ubisoft fan (only a rayman fan) but they came out with the pirate theme way before sea of thieves.
    Remember that this game looked like assassins creed 4 without the assassins creed part when it was announced.

    This game is basically just taking the naval combat from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and recycling it into a standalone experience. Essentially, It's just them recycling content. Also, it doesn't resemble Sea of Thieves in any way except that it's pirate-themed, gameplay's completely different. Also... Ubisoft did it first :teach:

    I know buddy. The thing is that id bet that most gamers will not see it for what it is. The gameplay is different, but the setup is the same. Then it will be the same in the gamers eyes. The thing that attracts gamers are the changes. The most evident ones. Thats the reason the games like god of war 4, and monster hunter world sold like hotcakes and the best sellers among the series of theirs, there were very huge changes. Improvements they want to try and attracted to.
