The delayed release date for Skull and Bones isn’t bad news

Ubisoft has announced yet another delay for its action-adventure game Skull and Bones – but it’s not all bad news.

We were expecting Skull and Bones to release on November 8th, so it’s a significant delay. That being said, the holiday season is a busy time for game releases and competition is strong. But with God of War Ragnarok, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet all at the same time, maybe pushing the date off is for the best.
