Skull & Bones release date could be in November, alleged Xbox store entry spotted with DLC packs

| |


Skull & Bones could finally – finally – set sail on November 8 after years of being stuck in development hell. An industry insider has unveiled an alleged Xbox Store listing for this game showing the release date. The alleged listing also includes several DLC packs that may be available at launch. Ubisoft Singapore reportedly began its development in 2013 as a spin-off of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Now, almost a decade later, there is still no official release date for Skull & Bones.

The supposed listing on the Skull & Bones Xbox Store was divided by industry insider Agiornamenti Lumia (@ALumia_Italia). The tweet mentioned that Skull & Bones would be launching with a plethora of DLC packs including the Pre-Order Bonus, Bloody Bones’ Legacy Mission, The Ashen Corsair Mission, Smuggler Pass Token, Digital Soundtrack and Artbook, and Premium Bonus Pack. Lumia too divided that Skull & Bones would be released on November 8th. Ubisoft has yet to officially announce the release date. Notable tipster Tom Henderson (@_TomHenderson) Has approved Lumia’s claims giving weight to the November 8 release date.

Skull & Bones was originally unveiled by Ubisoft during its E3 2017 event, followed by an extended gameplay trailer at E3 2018. Over the next few years, the wind died down for the game as it fell back into oblivion. The game recently re-emerged in the spotlight after its test footage allegedly was leaked on Reddit and offered a detailed look at the gameplay.

Set in the open waters of the Indian Ocean, Skull & Bones allows players to explore solo or as a crew of five. This sounds like Xbox’s Sea of ‚Äč‚ÄčThieves, except it’s not a cartoon. Pirate ship battles will serve as the core of the game as other players will be able to fight against you and take your dropped treasure. Played from a third-person perspective – just like Assassin’s Creed – players can customize their character and manage the ship and its crew.

Skull & Bones is now expected to be released on November 8th on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It was previously expected in 2019. Given that new consoles have been launched in recent years, Skull & Bones is likely to come to PS5 and Xbox Series S/X as well.
