Skull & Bones Delayed and Won’t Be at E3

The company said in its full-year 2018-19 earnings statement that the game, which was delayed last year into the 2019-20 fiscal year, has now been pushed to sometime after that. The vague "after 2019/20" refers to financial periods, as opposed to calendar years, meaning the earliest Skull & Bones might now launch is April 2020.

The game's official Twitter account also published a short video talking about the delay and decision to skip E3.

Ubisoft has delayed Skull & Bones from its previously planned 2019 release window to an unannounced date, and confirmed that it will not appear at E3 2019, which runs from June 11 to 13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Skull and Bones has never had a firm release date, but was expected at some point this year.

The good news is that there will be four new AAA games released before the end of fiscal year 2020, which is the end of March 2020.

In terms of the company's successes, March 2019 was a record month for "overall audience, activity, and play time" across consoles and PC platforms. One of those is Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which will be released on October 4th. The number of players has grown by 40% over the a year ago to reach more than 45 million. 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.
