Ubisoft published Cranium & Bones long ago in 2017 and it is been floating round in purgatory ever since. In the beginning due out in 2018, it was once driven to 2019, then 2020 and now the imprecise long run. However it is nonetheless going down, it seems that, with a “new imaginative and prescient” that we will have to attend till subsequent yr to listen to about.
Inventive Director Elisabeth Pellen shared the not-really-an-update in a weblog put up nowadays, providing few main points whilst making an attempt to elucidate why it is been postponed (a couple of occasions) in the previous couple of years.
“We dreamt one thing larger for Cranium & Bones, and those ambitions naturally got here with larger demanding situations,” she says. “Those difficulties led to essential delays for our recreation. Crucial questions had to be addressed over the last a number of months akin to: how will we modernize the vintage pirate myth? How will we make certain a extra immersive and visceral enjoy? How will we create cool and remarkable moments in-game? For a majority of these inquiries to be spoke back, it was once transparent that we wanted extra building time.”
It isn’t transparent what this giant new imaginative and prescient for the pirate recreation in truth is but, sadly. In July, it was once rumoured to have modified from the standard Ubisoft open-world formulation to a are living provider recreation, it seems that with a dwelling tale, neighborhood components and global occasions precipitated through avid gamers. Sounds acquainted.
Cranium & Bones can be skipping nowadays’s Ubisoft Ahead, adore it’s skipped the whole lot for the closing couple of years, so do not be expecting new main points quickly. It’s going to it seems that be in spite of everything reappearing subsequent yr, however we do not know when, and giving its penchant for lacking dates, I would not dangle my breath both.
