On July 12, Ubisoft Forward will include “a fully digital showcase with exclusive game news, reveals and more.” Ubisoft did not list any games for the event as part of the initial announcement, but it already has quite a few revealed games that could be highlighted.
There’s, of course, the most recently revealed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which is confirmed for a PS5 and Xbox Series X release as well as current-gen hardware and PC. There’s also a trio of confirmed Ubisoft games — Gods and Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Watch Dogs Legion — all of which were delayed from their early 2020 planned release dates to accommodate next-gen launches as well.
Ubisoft also has several long-gestating games that could be in the spotlight, including Beyond Good and Evil 2 and Skull & Bones. Whatever games may be shown at the event, which, presumably given its name, is looking forward at games to come, the company did confirm earlier this year that it has five AAA games set to launch between the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021.
Ubisoft is one of many in the gaming industry to announce summer digital events in light of E3 2020’s cancellation. IGN will be hosting its own Summer of Gaming event, which kicks off in June, featuring dozens of developers and publishers offering new interviews, demos, and much more. EA will be conducting a digital EA Play this June. And Geoff Keighley also announced the Summer Game Fest, which will include news and events from various publishers.
