Earlier this week, we reported all companies that will be participating in this year’s E3 convention and that Electronic Arts decided to back out of their slot. Ubisoft officially announced today that they will be taking the stage on June 13th. According to their Twitter page, Ubisoft’s pre-show is set to begin at 12:30 Pacific Time with the main event following at 13:00.
As of right now, there are no further details on what to expect with their main event but we do have some clues as to what could be potentially featured. Ubisoft previously mentioned their upcoming line-up for a list of games coming out between now and April 2017. Some of those titles include a sequel to Watch Dogs, For Honor, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and South Park: The Fractured ‘But hole’.
This year’s Ubisoft’s show is expected to be a little different than usual with the announcement back in February that there will not be a release of an Assassin’s Creed title in 2016, which has previously been an annual release. Here’s what the studio had to say about that when asked about the decision:
“This year, we are stepping back and re-examining the Assassin’s Creed franchise. As a result, we’ve decided that there will not be a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2016.”
