Gearing up for some pirate action? Let’s see when is the release date for Skull and Bones.

Skull and Bones is a new pirate-themed open-world action game, made by Ubisoft. In it, you’ll play as a pirate on your way to becoming the most infamous pirate kingpin. There is a single-player campaign, but the game really shines as a co-op pirate multiplayer. You can customize your pirate ship, sail the seas, and fight sea monsters, all in search of loot and infamy in the perilous world of Skull and Bones. So, when can we start pirating? When is the Skull and Bones release date? Let’s see.

Release Date for Skull and Bones

Ready your pirate hats and eye patches. The official launch date for Skull and Bones is February 16, 2024. Originally, it was supposed to be released on March 9, 2023, but the date has been moved and moved again. Ubisoft wants to polish and balance the game as much as they can, they don’t want to release a sub-par product, so that’s why it has been delayed.

It is just a couple of days until the official release, at the time of writing. We hope you are as excited as we are to start adventuring on the Indian Ocean.

Moreover, Early Access begins tomorrow, on February 13. If you got the Premium Edition or Ubisoft+ subscription, you can start your pirate adventure three days before the rest.
