Ubisoft’s long-awaited and oft-delayed Skull and Bones has actually gotten a ranking in South Korea, recommending its release might be on the horizon.
The score for the Skull and Bones PC variation was very first identified on South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee site by Twitter user @the_marmolade (through VGC). According to the website, the video game’s score was submitted on May 12 and it appears that it’s been categorized as a Mature video game and “not readily available for youth”. We understand a ranked ‘arrr’ joke would be totally unoriginal here which is why we’re never making it. No other way.
As far as information about the video game that are offered by the score, there’s absolutely nothing especially thorough. Explaining it as “An open-world action video game embeded in the Indian Ocean in the golden era of pirates as a background”, the listing mentions circumstances of substance abuse, drinking and cigarette smoking in the video game as the thinking behind the choice.
That Skull and Bones is now at the phase of being ranked recommends its advancement is occurring and, possibly, nearing conclusion. This comes just a number of days after Ubisoft stated in a monetary rundown that it anticipates the video game to release in this fiscal year, so prior to April 2023, without offering a specific release date.
We’re unsure when we can anticipate our next authorities upgrade on the development of Skull and Bones, or when we’ll see a fresh appearance at it. Summer Game Fest is approaching and it’s sure to bring plenty of interesting exposes and updates from publishers. It could, for that reason, be a perfect time for Ubisoft to offer gamers a take a look at what it’s got up its sleeve for the remainder of the fiscal year, though Ubisoft is yet to reveal any strategies.

Analysis: Where has Skull and Bones been?
Skull and Bones hasn’t had the best advancement, it’s safe to state. After being exposed all the method back in 2017, its release has actually been pressed back several times in the middle of reports of a reboot mid-development.
Indeed, in a September 2020 upgrade, Ubisoft Singapore imaginative director Elisabeth Pellen stated the video game was being made with a “brand-new vision” and, back in February 2022, Ubisoft specified that Skull and Bones is now a “multiplayer very first” video game, after early E3 discussions had actually made some points out of single-player aspects.
