Ubisoft publishing house has officially announced the postponement of the release of the long-suffering pirate action in the open world of Skull and Bones.
The press release was preceded by the publication of an article on the Kotaku portal with insider revelations.
Earlier, representatives of the publishing house reported that the game from Ubisoft Singapore studio will be released on November 8 on PC, Xbox Series X| S, PS5 and Google Stadia.
However, insiders note that the developers were dissatisfied with the results of the last technical testing, which ended on September 19.
Although the developers were able to improve the gameplay, the main problem was the too superficial progression system.
Note that the players were not thrilled with the latest presentations of Skull and Bones, which has been in development for about 10 years.
Many did not like the graphics, the lack of ground battles and the lack of narrative.
One of the ex-developers blames the voracious ocean simulation system for what is happening, which allegedly leaves few resources for cutscenes with increased detail.
According to a recent statement from Ubisoft, now Skull and Bones will be released only on March 9, 2023. The reason really was the feedback from the participants of technical texts.
"Although the development of the game is completed at this stage, the additional time will be used for further refinement and balancing of the game, taking into account the feedback of players received during technical tests," the company explained.
