Looks like fans of the high seas will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on Skull & Bones, Ubisoft's ambitious pirate game. Today the publisher revealed that the game was going to be pushed out of a 2018 release window to the next fiscal year:

Skull and Bones will launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC during Ubisoft’s next fiscal year (from April 1st 2019 to March 31st, 2020).

The extra time will allow the team at Ubisoft Singapore to deliver on their ambition to create the ultimate pirate game.

Ubisoft notes that they'll be sharing more about the game at E3 this year.

Our Take
This one kind of stings. I've been hankering to get back to Black Flag's brand of fantastic naval battles and swashbuckling but if it results in a better game, I'm happy for the delay too.
