When is Skull and Bones releasing on PS5?

Skull and Bones was supposed to release on March 9th, 2023. However, it was delayed for the sixth time by publisher Ubisoft, who outlined a new release window. Skull and Bones will now release between April 2023 and March 2024. The only guidance given by Ubisoft was that it would be an early part of the upcoming fiscal period, giving us that release window. It will come to the PS5 platform only.

The live-service pirate game has been in development for nigh-on ten years at this point and is being led by Ubisoft Singapore. Notoriously, the game has been in deep waters during this time, with struggles to even work out the basic concepts of the game before restarting development. Now it is nearing a release date, you can see the Skull and Bones gameplay.
