Details on the Skull and Bones release date and pre-order bonuses have apparently been leaked. The date was uncovered by Aggiornamenti Lumia, who is known on Twitter as @ALumia_Italia for datamining the Xbox database, and then seemingly verified by insider Tom Henderson.
What is the leaked Skull and Bones release date?

Henderson seems to have corroborated the November 8, 2023 release date revealed by @ALumia_Italia posted above with a simple checkmark reply. This fits surprisingly early within the timeline that Ubisoft released in its earning report that slated Skull and Bones between July 2023 and March 2023. An earlier tweet from Aggiornamenti Lumia revealed that the pre-order bonuses for the game will include a Bloody Bones’ Legacy mission, The Ashen Corsair mission, a Smuggler Pass token, a premium Bonus Pack, and a digital soundtrack and artbook.
Also according to Henderson via TryHardGuides, multiple sources have said that Ubisoft will be “re-revealing Skull and Bones during the week of July 4th.” While the publisher might have saved the reveal of the game’s official release date for its upcoming appearance at Gamescom, it seems that Ubisoft is likely to confirm the date very soon. This may be done through an Ubisoft Forward presentation alongside official gameplay footage.
On June 17, it was revealed that Skull and Bones had received a rating in Brazil for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Google Stadia. This suggests that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game may be canceled. Considering the game’s prior ratings in South Korea and Australia, this indicates that Skull and Bones is ready to be shown sooner than later.
Skull and Bones has had a tumultuous production, to say the least, since being revealed at E3 2017, with the game going through multiple changes in vision and setting over the last five years. So it was a surprise that footage of internal playtests of the game was leaked in late April this year.
In other news, the God of War Ragnarok release date is expected to arrive tomorrow without a State of Play, and Overwatch 2 supports 120 FPS on PS5 with further enhancement through VRR and multiple performance modes.
