Ubisoft has quite a few IPs under their control and a whole lot of them are being developed right now for a big release. To name a few, we have the likes of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine, Watch Dogs Legion along with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Still, there are others in the works that we know about but haven’t really seen a whole lot of lately. In fact, one of the games I’m personally eager to see launch into the market is Skull & Bones.
We don’t often get video games themed around pirates so when Ubisoft unveiled a gritty pirate game where players take command of a ship and crew, it certainly caught my attention. Unfortunately we haven’t seen this game around much since it was unveiled. In fact, Skull & Bones was constantly getting delayed and it looked like we might not see this game launch into the market at all. However, that’s not going to be the case as we now have some new information even though it may not be the most thrilling to hear at the moment.
It looks like Skull & Bones are still in production and it’s not going to be cancelled. Instead, the IP was rebooted as the creative director behind the IP, Elisabeth Pellen, alerted fans on the official Ubisoft website that the production is in full swing with a new vision. From what Elisabeth explains online it seems that Skull & Bones is a challenge for the development team, but one that they are eagerly taking on with hopes of a big hit when it does launch.
For instance, the developers on the project are asking a question such as how to make a classic pirate fantasy appealing in the modern-day. There’s a challenge also to present players with new immersive and memorable storyline moments. Of course, we don’t know just what the game will look like now as the last we saw it there was a push to bring out a more naval pirate game into the market. We could see something entirely different but one thing is for sure, it’s not going to be showcased this year. Instead, we should be looking towards 2021 for more information to roll out if not the game itself.
