The back and forth project Skull and Bones has been running here and there for several years, and is said to have cost Ubisoft over one billion dollars. But even though it has been described as "too big to fail", some have probably doubted that the finished game will ever be launched. A light in the tunnel, however, is the fact that Ubisoft is now looking for testers for it.
The so-called Insider program has now started, and you can register here. This is not a widespread beta or alpha test, but something on a much smaller scale. It all of course includes strict agreements not to disseminate any information or material from the test, so outsiders should probably not expect to see anything.
Skull and Bones was announced in 2017. Since then, the project has been restarted, changed vision and undergone a number of other crises. We can only keep our fingers crossed that it is now on the right course. Ubisoft has previously stated that they aim to release it before April 2023.
