In today's full year earnings report for 2020-21, Ubisoft pushed it back again: It's now set to come out in 2022-23.

Ubisoft chief financial officer Frederick Duguet said during today's earnings call

Skull and Bones is now expected for fiscal year '23. We strongly believe in the team's creative vision, and have been given an increasingly ambitious mandate for the game. Production, led by [Ubisoft] Singapore, has been advancing well over the past 12 months, and the promise is better than ever. The additional time will allow the team to fully deliver on its vision.

CEO Yves Guillemot said later in the call that Ubisoft is actually bringing more help onto the game in order to get it finished

What we have been doing to make sure they could really come strongly with Skull and Bones is, we increased the associate studios that are working with them at the moment. So there's a good and big team now working on the game, and the last 12 months have really been good in terms of the way things were coming along. So we are confident they can really bring something really exceptional for the market.

That's an interesting approach here by Ubi. Despite this being a free to play game, they keep delaying it.

They could've just put that thing out and keep working on it on the fly. Many others did, even to full priced games. So either the game is currently fucked beyond belief, or they are dedicated to offer a good experience from the start.

I believe that it takes time to catch up to Sea Of Thieves. You can't launch another pirate game and not be competitive in terms of quality and content.
