The delay in the Skull and Bones release date isn’t just bad news

Ubisoft has announced another delay in its cheeky action adventure game Skull and Bones – but that’s not all bad news.

The Skull and Bones release date was pushed back to March 9, 2023, but Ubisoft announced an open beta to smooth things out. Last month, some PC gamers (including myself) took part in testing with the very strict NDA, but the open beta will open the door for everyone, and possibly cross-platform.

We were expecting Skull and Bones to be released on November 8, so this is quite a delay. That said, the holiday season is a busy time for game releases, and competition is fierce. But with God of War Ragnarok, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet at the same time, perhaps the date shift is best.
