Skull & Bones Reportedly Rebooted

Ubisoft has not yet made its annual announcement that they are delaying Skull & Bones, but VGC has an unconfirmed report that the open-world, pirate-themed sailing game is being rebooted to a "live" game model rather than a premium game. They attribute this to "development sources speaking under the condition of anonymity." They add that "one person with knowledge of its development" tells them social and "live storytelling" elements in Fortnite are the inspiration for this new direction. They also say the reboot resulted in Elisabeth Pellen taking over as the game's creative director, replacing Justin Farren, who's now with Wargaming. VGC says Ubisoft declined to comment on their story.
