Ubisoft Canceled 3 Unannounced Projects & Delays Skull and Bones Yet Again

Skull and Bones

At one point in time, all of us here at Cloud Dosage were pretty stoked about Skull and Bones coming to Stadia as one of a few AAA games expected in the fall of 2022. Then delays hit the game (moved from November to March), Stadia’s shutdown was announced, and we all moved on to other services and titles to keep us occupied. But, Skull and Bones is still out there on the Horizon coming to Amazon Luna and very likely other cloud services like GeForce Now.

It looks like the game has suffered another delay. It is now slated for early fiscal year 23-24, which means at earliest April and at latest December. We typically are of the opinion that a game developers and publishers should release a game when it is done. We’d rather have a complete game at launch rather than something that isn’t fully baked.

However, this delay appears to be the result of self-described “restructuring” at Ubisoft after a particularly tough end to (calendar year) 2022 for the company. It is reported that Ubisoft has also canceled 3 unannounced projects. It’s hard to make anything out of that latter news in particular without further context about what these projects were. It’s not surprising to hear about a company re-focusing now and again.

Ubisoft is an Important Publisher for Cloud Gaming

Ubisoft is an important publishing partner in the cloud gaming space. They were one of the biggest early supporters of Stadia and continue to have a large number of titles available on Amazon Luna and GeForce Now.

Playing your owned Ubisoft titles or games from an Ubisoft+ subscription are some of the best reasons we can think of for using Amazon Luna. The Ubisoft+ channel gives you access to all of Ubisoft Connect’s platform features including multiplayer, friends lists, achievements etc. While the delay will be a bummer for Ubisoft users on Luna in particular, there is still quite a bit to look forward to. 2023 should still see the launch of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and Skull and bones among other titles.
