It appears Ubisoft’s long-in-development pirate game Skull and Bones now has a release date, or at least a rumored release date. Details from a supposed Xbox Store listing point to a November 8 launch. The listings, discovered by @ALumia_Italia on Twitter, also reveal that–like basically every other Ubisoft game–Skull and Bones will have a variety of extra content available.
These include some kind of preorder bonus and multiple add-on missions called Bloody Bones’ Legacy and The Ashen Corsair, according to the leak. There will also be a digital soundtrack and artbook, as well as a “premium” bonus pack, the leaked listing apparently said. Reporter Tom Henderson replied to ALumia_Italia’s tweet to seemingly corroborate the rumored November 8 release date.

According to reporter Ethan Gach, Skull and Bones was originally targeting a launch in early summer before being pushed to September, and then again to November, according to this latest leak. Gach also said there was supposed to be a closed test for Skull and Bones in June but plans were apparently canceled.
