Ubisoft will be at E3 2021 with another Ubisoft Forward show that goes live in June, but what will we see?
Ubisoft Forward will kick off on Saturday, June 12, 2021 at 12PM PST / 3PM EST, the publisher today confirmed. The announcement didn't come with any hints on what will be at the show, but Ubisoft did confirm it'll be a digital conference, so expect dev talks alongside sizzle reels and trailers.
So what can we expect from the show? Far Cry 6 is a given, as is Rainbow Six Parasite. We could see teases of Assassin's Creed Valhalla's second major expansion pack and new content for Watch Dogs Legion. Ubisoft should detail updates across its portfolio of live service games, including Rainbow Six Siege, The Division 2, and From Honor. Maybe, just maybe, we'll get a small snippet of Massive's new Star Was project, or maybe even their new Avatar game.
We could also get reveals of at least two major AAA games during the show. Based on our previous reports, Ubisoft wants to launch 3-4 AAA games by March 2022, but this plan has likely shifted a bit thanks to COVID-19 interruptions.
Ubisoft's financial reports are a lot less informative than they used to be so it's hard to glean info from current data.
