Skull and Bones: Nearer Than Ever Before?
Skull and Bones was originally intended to be an add-on for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag because of its naval combat. Later, it was rebranded as Black Flag Infinite, an MMO title, and then an independent project. The direction of the game, as well as the location, has changed multiple times. The game’s development was doomed from the start due to a lack of focus and other problems. Ubisoft reportedly spent $120 million on this project, according to multiple reports. According to the Ubisoft earnings report, the game is set for release within March 2023, the end of its fiscal year.
The report stated:
”2022-23 will see the first benefits from this strategy as we look to significantly grow our
topline. The biggest driver of our topline growth will be our diverse line-up of premium games, including Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, and Skull & Bones, as well as other exciting titles.”
In the game, players will begin with a small ship and work their way up the ranks to build bigger ships. They’ll be able to take on a variety of sea contracts too. ” Infamy” can be earned via completing contracts, performing treasure hunts, exploring the globe, and many other events. In addition, players have access to a wide range of customization options.
