A hell of development surrounded by accusations and controversies
About Skull & BonesWe hardly know any official information about the state of the game from Ubisoft. In the middle of September last year, an acquaintance insider I shared new information about their ships, world and gameplay, though it has been a considerable time since we received any trailer or gameplay, so we cannot verify the information. On the other hand, it is important to note that Antoine Henry is not the only creative who has abandoned the development of the pirate title: Hugues Ricour, ex-director general from Skull & Bones, left Ubisoft Singapore, which we recall is under investigation for allegations of sexual harassment and discrimination, in mid-November 2020.
