    After the success of Assassin's Creed IV, Ubisoft planned to capitalize on their experience on making pirate games about sailing the high seas by creating Skull & Bones, an open world pirate simulator. The game was announced at E3 2017 and set to release in 2018, though it faced a delay into 2019. After a dearth of significant development updates this year, Ubisoft has officially delayed the game yet again. Skull and Bones is now set for a release window in either 2020 or 2021, making for a major delay that was so drastic, that the game won't even be shown at this year's E3, skipping the event entirely. To make up for it, Ubisoft revealed that they have three other AAA titles slated for Q4 2019.

    I think I've been waiting for this since they announced it in 2017. Hopefully it will be out before I'm too old to hold a controller.

    Willing to bet it’s being delayed to be reworked as black flag 2.

    That’s a very gay decision by Ubisoft.

    Such a shame, I'm actually quite eager to see more of it.

    Also true. Surprised there are no games with ninja pirates yet.

    No problem as long as it's an actually finished game and not a near-empty sandbox at release such as Sea of Thieves.

    Maybe because they have something against piracy?

    Oh man. It is too bad that there isn't millions of other released and soon-to-be-released games to play instead while we wait, huh?

    I guess Xbox Zero is an appropriate name, considering the push for could gaming.

    I think robots are getting pretty popular again as well.
