Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones is an upcoming open-world pirate RPG that has been in development for an extended period of time – but it looks like it could finally be released this year. The game has been rumoured to come out this year, and supposedly, the release date has been leaked through an Xbox Store listing.

According to Aggiornamenti Lumia, and later confirmed by Tom Henderson, the game is scheduled to release on November 8, 2022. Ubisoft is yet to make any official comment or confirmation regarding a release date but Henderson has had a pretty strong record when it comes to leaks and launch dates.

Skull and Bones has had an infamously long development cycle which has seen the game being cancelled and brought back. Earlier this year, gameplay footage from a demo of the game was leaked on the internet – suggesting the game is almost ready for release this year.

Skull and Bones Could Finally be Released this Year, Leaks Suggest

The early concept of Skull and Bones materialized after the success of Assassin’s Creed Black Flag and its surprisingly fun naval combat mechanic. The idea, initially, was for the game to be an expansion for Black Flag, which later evolved into a standalone MMO title, but finally found footing as an independent project.

The game went through several iterations, and became one of gaming’s most infamous titles stuck in “development hell”. Finally, after several delays, the game is finally set for launch this year and it appears Ubisoft will soon announce a release date for the game.

It will be interesting to see how the audience reacts to the game and whether it will have the same impact as Black Flag did during its launch. Skill and Bones is the first game being led in development by Ubisoft Singapore, a studio which has previously assisted on games such as Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Valhalla.
