Skull and Bones Earns Age Rating in South Korea – What does this mean?
According to VGC The pirate adventure Skull and Bones has received a South Korea rating. This means that the game is either already finished or about to be completed. The classification reads as follows “[Skull and Bones ist] an open-world action game set in the Indian Ocean during the pirate heyday.” In addition, the game should use of drugs and violence, which is why it is not suitable for young people, at least in South Korea. While this information is of course not groundbreaking or terribly surprising, it’s good to finally get a sign of life, after all it wasn’t always like this.
Those were the problems in developing Skull and Bones
Already In 2013 tinkered at Skull and Bones originally it was supposed to be an expansion Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag act until it was finally converted into an MMO spin-off and finally into an independent project. Since then it has been said to change direction again and again and sometimes even complete reboots have given in the development. As of July 2021, according to insider information, $120 million has gone into development.
On the E3 2017 the game was officially announced for the first time and was supposed to be released in 2018. Eventually the first of many postponements followed and the new plan was a 2019 release, then the game was pushed to 2020 only to be postponed again. The current release period is between January and March 2023. Let’s hope Ubisoft can stick to the schedule this time around and who knows, maybe Skull and Bones will (buy now €99.77) yes, just as great a success as Microsoft’s Sea of Thieves.
