Skull and Bones was one of my favourite games of E3 this year. Essentially the best naval bits of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, this retooled collection of naval battles was gorgeous, fun and it thoroughly shivered my timbers. Here’s the question that many a person has asked though: Why is it a new IP? Why not keep it within the shared universe of Assassin’s Creed games? Because doing so wuld limit the new IP for Ubisoft.
