Thanks to some internet sleuthing, it seems the release date for Ubisoft’s upcoming pirate game, Skull And Bones, has leaked online. According to data found on the Xbox store, the game is set to release this November, which lines up with information Kotaku has heard about the game’s rocky development.
As first spotted by Eurogamer, Twitter user Aggiornamenti Lumia looked into the Xbox digital store listing for Skull And Bones yesterday and found a release date for November 8. While this date has yet to be officially confirmed by Ubisoft, the store leak appears credible as the Twitter user has shared accurate dates gleaned from retailers before and the November launch date falls in line with what Kotaku has heard about the online game’s development trajectory.
One source familiar with the game’s troubled development explained to Kotaku that Skull And Bones’ release date has continued to shift and slip internally. We were told that a planned closed beta test set for June was canceled over quality concerns regarding the latest build of the online pirate game.
