As part of the French publisher's 2018-2019 fiscal report, it was revealed that Skull and Bones will release sometime after March 2020. It's so delayed, in fact, that Ubisoft announced that it will not be seen until "financial year 2019/2020" which means April 2020 at the earliest. First time around, developer Ubisoft Singapore stated that it wants to "make this game right in order to achieve our ambition to deliver the ultimate pirate game set to thrill players at launch and for years to come".

Having been announced back in June 2017 during E3, Skull and Bones has been on a long journey towards release. The Skull and Bones Twitter account wasn't much more helpful, although it did confirm in various tweets that there are now no target dates for beta testing or release.
