Ubisoft’s upcoming Skull and Bones video game has now been delayed for a sixth time. The title was given the new March 9th release date just last month in December 2022 but it’s now set to come out sometime in “early 2023-24.”

The change was officially announced earlier this week as part of a 2022-2023 financial report released by Ubisoft.

“The additional time has already paid off and brought impressive improvements to its quality, which has been confirmed by recent playtests,” the passage in the report relating to Skull and Bones reads. “We believe players will be positively surprised by its evolution. We have decided to postpone its release in order to have more time to showcase a much more polished and balanced experience and to build awareness. Skull and Bones will now be released early 2023-24.”

An upcoming beta testing period for Skull and Bones was also mentioned though such a test was always expected pre-launch given the online nature of the video game.
