Skull and Bones is apparently one step closer to release

Ubisoft’s long-in-development pirate game Skull And Bones is edging ever closer to release, and has now apparently been classified for release, suggesting that the game will soon see the light of day.

The South Korean Game Administration and Rating Committee has released a rating for Skull And Bones, as discovered by @the_marmolade on Twitter (via VGC). The rating doesn’t reveal anything new about Skull & Bones, but it does pave the way for the game’s release.

Skull and Bones’ rating isn’t much of a surprise, as Ubisoft plans to release the title sometime next year, and getting approval for release from ratings groups is part of that process. However, the ESRB database does not contain a rating for Skull & Bones, but it is not uncommon for ratings lists to appear first in South Korea, for whatever reason.

Skull & And Bones was announced at E3 2017, but its path to release hasn’t been easy. The game, which is in development at Ubisoft Singapore, is said to have undergone numerous changes throughout its development, including a move to a live service focus in 2020.

Back in April, a lengthy gameplay video surfaced from a Skull And Bones tech test that provided the best look yet at the pirate game and what it will offer. The goal is to become the most infamous pirate on the seas during the golden age of piracy. Players can land their ship at a place called Saint-Anne where they can craft new ships and equipment, collect supplies, accept contracts, and socialize with other human players, according to the leaked video.

The video also reveals that players’ reputations will be tracked through an “infamy” ladder that they can increase by accepting contracts with rewards for succeeding and penalties for failing. Users can also participate in world events and loot treasure chests to earn infamy. Additionally, the video reveals some of the character creation and customization options available to players, as well as the systems that require players to manage their ship’s health and crew morale when at sea.

Ubisoft reacted to the leak by telling fans to “keep your eyes on the horizon.” Reading between the lines here, it sounds like Ubisoft might be getting ready to make some kind of official announcement about the game soon. Ubisoft historically has some sort of summer game showcase, but the company has yet to announce any plans for this as of yet.
