Ubisoft will be heading to this year’s E3 conference.
It’s that time of year again. This is the time when all the major game publishers and developers all start spamming on social media whether they’ll be attending this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, which will take place from Tuesday, June 11th to Thursday, June 13th at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
In an announcement on Twitter, Ubisoft revealed that it would attend this year’s E3, but wouldn’t have a big stage at the conference. Instead, they’ll have their own press conference the day before E3 starts on June 10th at 10 PM Pacific Standard Time (that’s 4 PM EST).
Ubisoft didn’t tell us what they’d be talking about, so it’s up to use to wildly speculate. Could we get an announcement for a new Assassin’s Creed? Another bizarre Nintendo/Rabbids crossover? More remasters like what they did for Assassin’s Creed III?
All those could be in the offing. We could also get some announcements for more Division 2 content, such as new content, skins, and events, as well as some announcements regarding their upcoming titles such as Skull & Bones and Beyond Good and Evil 2.
Skull & Bones is a pirate combat game that draws heavily from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Beyond Good and Evil 2 was announced at 2017’s E3 as the sequel to the 2003 classic, and has been in development for a very long time. We know Skull & Bones is due out this year, but Beyond Good and Evil 2 still doesn’t have a release date. We might just get one at Ubisoft’s conference.
This year’s E3 will be a little different from previous years. For the first time in the Expo’s history, Sony will not be in attendance nor will they provide a keynote address. EA will similarly not be in attendance, and instead will host their own separate EA Play event shortly before E3. EA will also not have a press conference this year, and instead just showcase gameplay footage from upcoming games.
Microsoft and Nintendo will both be in attendance, although we don’t know when or if Microsoft will hold their press conference. Bethesda will be there, but their press conference will also be before the start of the show on June 9th.
