Skull and Bones have had more trouble with release dates than well any other Ubisoft game so far. Skull & Bones was first revealed and made public by Ubisoft during E3 2017.
A 2019 release window for the game was announced by Ubisoft in 2018, however, in May of that year, it was postponed to 2020. Then it was pushed again to 2021. But in 2022, it seems like an imminent launch of Skull and Bones is on the way.
We are being hinted at the game for quite some time now. A couple of months back we got the first leaked footage from Skull and Bones showcased that the game was pretty much completed. A few days ago it was also rated by ESRB, hinting at launch in near future.
Now we finally have a date for Ubisoft’s Pirates-inspired game and it will launch on November 8, 2022. Reliable Twitter leaker @ALumia_Italia tweeted a date after writing Skull and Bones to which famous insider and reporter @_Tom_Henderson seemingly confirmed it.

Moreover, there have been other subtle hints as well. According to Lumia, Xbox listings are ready and the game will come with:
- SKULL AND BONES™ PRE-ORDER BONUS
- Bloody Bones’ Legacy Mission
- The Ashen Corsair Mission
- Smuggler Pass Token
- Digital Soundtrack and Artbook
- Premium Bonus Pack
Seems like the preorder version of the game will come with additional content and there will be DLCs with the game at launch as well in the form of extra missions.
Nothing of course is final, as we are yet to hear from Ubisoft itself about the launch. However, we will keep an eye out for any further news (and delays). So, stay tuned for that.
Will Skull and Bones finally break the curse and launch this year? What do you guys think?
