Ubisoft announces new Direct-like presentation with ‘exciting reveals’

Ubisoft Forward is on July 12

It has begun.

Now that E3 is nixed for 2020 and packed live press conferences are on hold for a while, pretty much everyone is clamoring to create Nintendo Direct-style video presentations. We’ve said this before, but Nintendo really was ahead of the time when it comes to these.

Several publishers are opting to pull out of formal “June E3 Conferences,” instead sharing the spotlight with others in showcases like Summer Game Fest. Now, we know that Ubisoft will be holding an event of its own called “Ubisoft Forward” on July 12. Little is known about the event, but Ubisoft says it will be an “E3-style showcase with exclusive game news, exciting reveals and plenty more.”

It’s easy to speculate about what they’re going to show. We need a Watch Dogs: Legion update for sure, as well as more news on Gods & Monsters and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. There’s also a few other projects floating around like Roller Champions, which had a pre-alpha demo last year.

Mark your calendars…again! It’s going to be a long summer of these things.
