Cranium & Bones was initially revealed at E3 2017 and has since suffered from many delays. It was initially speculated to launch within the fall of 2018, however was pushed again to 2019, after which once more pushed to someday in 2020. Although, after Ubisoft unveiled its upcoming AAA launch schedule for the following 12 months, the pirate journey recreation was nowhere to be discovered. Along with the sport’s reboots, Schreier additionally famous that its artistic director left the venture in 2018, resulting in extra turmoil in its growth. Our personal E3 2018 preview of the sport famous that, whereas it had potential, it gave the impression to be lacking quite a bit because it targeted solely on pirate ship battles and didn’t discover the rest.

Final we heard, Cranium & Bones was speculated to deal with piracy and naval battles, just like these present in Murderer’s Creed IV: Black Flag (additionally developed by Ubisoft). Gamers management a pirate from a third-person perspective, navigating the ocean by themselves or with as much as 5 different gamers. A TV present by the identical identify can also be within the works and can star a feminine lead.
