Ubisoft is reportedly working on a remake of the popular 2013 game, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Although it is still in the early stages, the development of this remake involves a team at Ubisoft Singapore. This studio is also responsible for enhancing the naval technology in the Assassin’s Creed series, as they are currently working on the game Skull and Bones.
According to Kotaku, an internal email revealed that developers at Ubisoft Singapore are required to work on Skull and Bones at the office instead of remotely. Although breakfast and dinner are provided, this move seems to be an effort to encourage longer working hours in order to meet the deadline for the scheduled closed beta version at the end of August.
Interestingly, the team working on Skull and Bones has also discussed the possibility of incorporating elements from Black Flag into the game. This could mean adding cooperative exploration and unarmed combat mechanics, in addition to resource gathering and player-versus-player naval battles.
Skull and Bones has faced numerous delays since its initial announcement in 2017. Originally set for release in November 2022, it was then pushed back to March 2023. Currently, it has an undetermined release window within the fiscal year 2023-2024. During the Ubisoft Forward 2023 showcase, the company announced a closed beta period for Skull and Bones, scheduled to take place from August 25th to 28th.
Ubisoft’s decision to prioritize Assassin’s Creed is not surprising, as the company recently confirmed its commitment to the blockbuster franchise. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag received high praise upon its release in 2013. In IGN’s review, they praised the expansive game world and engaging gameplay, stating that it provided hours of entertainment for players.
