Revealed via Ubisoft's 2018-2019 financial earnings report, the company's 2019-2020 financial targets of net bookings of around €2,185 million ($2.4 billion USD) will be led by Ghost Recon Breakpoint and the three other AAA titles that are now unknown. He says the delay is about giving an ambitious new IP time to fulfill its potential. The vague "after 2019/20" refers to financial periods, as opposed to calendar years, meaning the earliest Skull & Bones might now launch is April 2020. There won't be any sign of Skull and Bones at E3 either, as the development team focuses on polishing the game up further.

Ubisoft announced in its year-end fiscal report it has three triple-A titles in the works, and a delay for Skull and Bones.

However, court spokesman Rob McCallum said that both the prosecutors and defense agreed to delay the hearing until Wednesday. District Attorney George Brauchler said he would decide by Friday whether to charge McKinney as a juvenile or adult.

Originally set for an autumn 2018 release, Skull and Bones was pushed into the 2019/2020 fiscal year. "That's the type of experience we want people to have, so it's accessible and people can understand it", Justin Farren, the game's creative director at the time, told Kotaku. "We believe in our vision for the game, while also making sure the voice of our community is being heard", Ubisoft tweeted. One of those is Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Throw in The Division 2, and 2019 is looking solid towards the usual Q4 big budget release from the French company. More information at E3 and gamescom this year seems likely. Watch Dogs 3? Splinter Cell?
