The early concept of Skull and Bones came about after the success of Assassin’s Creed Black Flag and its surprisingly fun naval combat mechanic. The idea was initially that the game would be an expansion for Black Flag, which later evolved into a standalone MMO title, but eventually gained a foothold as an independent project.
The game went through several iterations and became one of the most infamous game titles stuck in “development hell”. Finally, after several delays, the game is finally launching this year and it looks like Ubisoft will be announcing a release date for the game soon.
It will be interesting to see how the public reacts to the game and if it will have the same impact as Black Flag at launch. Skill and Bones is the first game to be developed by Ubisoft Singapore, a studio that has previously helped with games like Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Valhalla.
