Skull and Bones Not Being Released Until After March 2020
Revealed via Ubisoft’s 2018-2019 financial earnings report, the company’s 2019-2020 financial targets of net bookings of around €2,185 million ($2.4 billion USD) will be led by Ghost Recon Breakpoint and the three other AAA titles that are currently unknown.
As for Skull & Bones, the reason it is not expected to release until after March 2020 is due to the fact that Ubisoft’s pirate game has been delayed past Ubisoft’s 2019-2020 fiscal year, which began on April 1, 2019 and will end on March 31, 2020.
The Skull & Bones team, represented by producer Karl Luhe, also took to Twitter to share a message with its fans to let them know that Skull & Bones will also not be at E3 2019 as the team will focus entirely on making the game “as great as possible.”
We’re going to batten down the hatches and push back on the game’s arrival—this is a challenging news for us all, but it’s what’s needed to make Skull & Bones as awesome as it can be!
Our focus remains on quality first and we’re grateful for your undying support ☠️⚔️ pic.twitter.com/ZCt85tY3TG

Originally scheduled to be released in fall 2018, the title that we called a mix between Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, For Honor, and The Crew apparently needs a bit more time to be able to live up to the team’s vision.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint was revealed last week and is a follow-up to Ghost Recon Wildlands that will be released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on October 4, 2019. Breakpoint is also our IGN First for this month, so stay tuned for exclusive inside looks at this new title, including its Hideout Social Hub.
Figuring out what the other three AAA titles are will be the new gripping question as we know Assassin’s Creed is taking a year off. 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.
