Ubisoft’s Skull & Bones could be getting its release soon now that a reting has popped up for the PC version in South Korea.
According to the South Korean Game Management Committee (via VGC), the rating was submitted on May 12 and appears to be rated Mature. A rating is often only given when the game is finished, or almost finished.
The game is said to involve drug use, alcohol use and smoking. The rating also talks about an open-world setting in the Indian Ocean during the heyday of piracy.
Skull & Bones has been going through a bumpy process since its announcement at E3 2017. Then a 2018 release was promised. Since then, the game has been delayed several times. In 2020 Ubisoft blew reportedly new life in Skull & Bones and it should become a live game model. The only reason it still exists is because of a deal with the government in Singapore that requires Ubisoft to release its own games in exchange for subsidies.
The game appears to be ready for public testing and leaked gameplay appeared last month.
Skull & Bones isn’t the only game from Ubisoft long in development† The Prince of Persia remake has been delayed several times, most recently it was announced that Ubisoft Montreal is taking over the project.
