Ubisoft has also said that the game will not be appearing at this year's E3, in June. It's so delayed, in fact, that Ubisoft announced that it will not be seen until "financial year 2019/2020" which means April 2020 at the earliest.
The game's official Twitter account also published a short video talking about the delay and decision to skip E3.
In what has now become an annual tradition (two years running!), Ubisoft has delayed Skull and Bones. Now, it will release in the 2020/2021 fiscal year. One of those is Ghost Recon Breakpoint. The remaining three are unannounced titles that will be released in Q4 FY2020, which is between January 1st and March 31st, 2020. And with the company indefinitely delaying the game's release - it no longer has a release window - it seems nearly certain that we'll see a very different Skull & Bones when it next appears. "That's the type of experience we want people to have, so it's accessible and people can understand it", Justin Farren, the game's creative director at the time, told Kotaku. Watch Dogs 3? Splinter Cell? Despite this, the game failed to meet the publisher's expectations on console due to a "more competitive environment than expected".
Assassin's Creed Odyssey has performed better than Assassin's Creed Origins did during the same period of its release.
