We're not European press, so we weren't at last year's Ubisoft press event, UBIDAYS. It's likely we won't be at this year's event either, but we can slap a mustache on Jim Sterling and try to sneak him in, I suppose.
Announced today by Ubisoft, the UBIDAYS 2008 press event will take place at the home of "Mona Lisa," Paris' world-famous Louvre museum. According to Ubisoft, last year's event was such a success (note: "UBIDAYS" is now trademarked), they couldn't pass up the opportunity for a follow-up.
"The positive feedback from last year convinced us that this was the ideal way to present our games and to have enriching exchanges with partners who support us year after year," says Ubisoft's Executive Director for Europe, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific, Alain Corre. "We're eagerly awaitings UBIDAYS 2008, which is already shaping up to offer a look at future industry trends and the group's upcoming blockbuster titles."
Said "blockbuster" titles will be revealed at a later date, but plenty of juicy info came out of last year's UBIDAYS, and we're expecting much of the same come May 29 and 29 when the event takes place.
My fingers are crossed for Ubisoft to finally reveal the new Prince of Persia title, but my money's on at least three games with Tom Clancy's name attached to them. Any Ubi games you guys are looking to hear more about? (A Beyond Good and Evil sequel is too obvious, and is not an acceptable answer.)
