The game does not yet have a release date.
Ubisoft’s upcoming Skull & Bones game, which does not yet have an official release date, will be getting its own television show.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Ubisoft is working with Atlas Entertainment, which has helped produce various DC films and the true crime show Dirty John, to create the show.
The project is being billed as a “female-driven drama set in the lawless frontier of the Indian Ocean at the end of the golden age of piracy in the 1700s.” The Mist’s Amanda Segel will write the pilot and executive produce alongside Atlas Entertainment’s Andy Horwitz and Richard Suckle.
Skull & Bones is simply the latest instance of Ubisoft using its IP for film and television. Earlier this year, it was reported that Screen Gems would be making a film adaptation of Just Dance. Similarly, Deadpool 2’s director is working on a film based on The Division, and films like The Prince of Persia have already been released. Skull & Bones is unique in this instance, as it’s an Ubisoft property being adapted to TV that hasn’t yet had a game released.
Last year, Skull & Bones was delayed from a Fall 2018 release to 2019. During E3 2018, a beta for Skull & Bones was announced, but no hard dates were given. Skull & Bones is being developed for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
