Antoine Henry, Associate Game Director for Skull and Bones has left Ubisoft Singapore after 15 years with the company. 

Ubisoft's swashbuckling online open-world game Skull and Bones was announced way back in 2017 but it is yet to get a release date. Over the last four years, Ubisoft didn't talk much about Skull and Bones. The publisher basically released one gameplay trailer since the announcement and that's about it. 

They have mentioned the game a couple of times in their financial reports though, stating that it's still in development and will be coming to PC and consoles but it won't be the same Skull and Bones that we got to see in 2017. 

Creative director Elisabeth Pellen said the team had to delay the game a couple of times since they've "dreamt something bigger, and these ambitions naturally came with bigger challenges."

Anyway, as we wait to hear and see more of Skull and Bones, it seems that  the Game Director has left Ubisoft Singapore . Antoine Henry, who worked on Skull and Bones since 2014 as Lead Game Designer and Associate Game Director revealed on Linkedin that he has left Ubisoft after 15 years.

This could suggest that the project is close to completion since Henry wrote that he is leaving the company to pursue new exciting adventures soon. So it's not a breakup, luckily. 

"Goodbye Ubisoft! After nearly 15 years, today was my last day.I'm thankful for the people I've met and what they brought me professionally and personally. Hopefully, I was able to give back a little bit. On to new exciting adventures very soon!"

We're also hopeful that Ubisoft will soon shed more light on Skull and Bones and finally give us a release date or at least a new trailer.
