Paris, SEPTEMBER 28, 2022 – Today, Ubisoft announced that Skull and Bones will now release on March 9, 2023 on Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation®5, Stadia, Amazon Luna, and Windows PC through the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store.

An Open Beta will be held ahead of the game’s worldwide launch to ensure players get a firsthand look at the dangerous world of Skull and Bones.
