Another day, another batch of very cool new footage of upcoming video games from E3 2018 including the long-awaited Skull & Bones from Ubisoft.
Originally unveiled back at E3 2017, Skull & Bones was announced with a 2018 release date. Well, here we are with E3 2018 taking place and guess what? It’s not coming out in 2018. It might come out in 2019. Maybe. Because that’s as specific as Ubisoft will get – some time in 2019.
On the plus side, once again they have released some new footage and even gone so far as to allow gamers to now sign up for a Beta version of the title (here).
In the mean time, here’s Ubisoft’s E3 2018 Conference Presentation which includes new footage for Skull & Bones.
Several other video game titles also saw new footage revealed in addition to what we have already shared.
