Ubisoft has a good number of IPs under its control and many of them are in development for a big release. To name a few, we have the likes of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Quarantine, Watch Dogs Legion as well as Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Still, there are others in the works that we know of but haven't really seen lately. In fact, one of the games that I would personally like to see hit the market is Skull Bones.
We don't often get pirate-themed video games, so when Ubisoft unveiled a gritty pirate game where players take command of a ship and crew, it certainly caught my eye. Unfortunately, we haven't seen much of this game since it was unveiled. In reality, Skull Bones was constantly delayed, and it looked like we might not see this game hit the market at all. However, that won't be the case as we now have some new information, although it may not be the most exciting to hear yet.
Looks like Skull Bones are still in production and will not be canceled. Instead, the IP has been rebooted as the creative director behind the IP, Elisabeth Pellen, alerted fans on Ubisoft's official website that production is in full swing with a new vision. From what Elisabeth explains online, it looks like Skull Bone is a challenge for the development team, but they are eagerly tackling it with hopes of great success when it launches.
For example, the developers of the project have such a question as how to make a classic pirate fantasy attractive in modern times. It's also challenging to introduce players to new, immersive and memorable storyline moments. Of course, we don't know what the game will look like now, because last we saw it, there was a push to release a more naval pirate game in the market. We might see something completely different, but one thing's for sure, it won't be featured this year. Instead, we should look to 2022 for more information to roll out if not the game itself.
