Skull and Bones: A Tumultuous Development Journey Towards Release

Skull and Bones, Ubisoft’s pirate-based multiplayer epic, has faced an unprecedented development hurdle. With numerous delays, the game has been pushed back countless times, undergoing tweaks, updates, and modifications from the developer.

Countdown to Launch: Three Weeks and Counting
