With E3 canceled this year, it's up to the publishers to host events showcasing the upcoming titles for the year and Ubisoft has officially announced its own event for July 12.
Ubisoft is calling the event "Ubisoft Forward" and in its blog post (opens in new tab) today the company said this will be an "E3-style showcase with plenty of exclusive game news, exciting reveals, and much more (via VentureBeat).
- PS5 games: All confirmed games so far
- Xbox Series X games: All confirmed games so far
- PS5 may help you plan your gaming according to a recent Sony patent
Assassin's Creed Valhalla was a big player in the inaugural Xbox 20/20 event last week, although it turned out to be more of an Xbox Series X trailer reveal event than the gameplay event we were promised. Ubisoft has plenty of other major titles in the pipeline to show off though including Gods and Monsters, Watch Dogs: Legion, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Quarantine to name a few.
Presumably, with full control of the event, the company will be able to give us a deeper dive into the games and hopefully some actual gameplay with either or both next-gen consoles.
