Skull and Bones beta/live test release dates
At the time of writing, the exact release dates for the beta or live tests for Skull and Bones is not available just yet.
We do, however, know that the Insider Program for PC gamers is ongoing. With the wording of "tests" we assume there will be multiple beta/live test periods.
Skull and Bones releases on 8th November 2022. Therefore, our guess is you will see betas or live tests (possibly a weekend test or two?) to begin between early September and late mid-October.
