Ubisoft has just announced ‘Ubisoft Forward’ – a digital event that will take place on July 12th. The event will be in the style of a typical Ubisoft E3 press conference with deep-dive demos and gameplay reveals.
In a statement, Ubisoft said:
With physical gaming shows around the world postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ubisoft will be hosting its first digital conference, called Ubisoft Forward, on July 12. Get ready for an E3-style showcase with plenty of exclusive game news, exciting reveals, and much more
There are many games that we can expect to see at this show. The recently announced Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which will launch later this year, is an almost certainty to show up with more extended gameplay reveal this time. Watch Dogs: Legion is also expected this year, so expect more gameplay and a final release for that.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 and Skull & Bones have not been heard of since E3 2018, so you should probably expect more news of those titles even if they are not out for the foreseeable future. Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Roller Champions were all revealed last year, so expect more info on those, too.
We can also expect some new gameplay reveals. Back in February, Ubisoft confirmed they will launch 5 AAA games between April 2020 – March 2021. Three of those games had already been confirmed with Watch Dogs: Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Gods & Monsters. The fourth one is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, with the fifth one not yet announced.
According to Jason Schreier, this will be a new Far Cry. The last entry in Far Cry New Dawn released in Early 2019, thus an early 2021 window would make sense.
Anyone holding out hope for Splinter Cell is, once again, going to be disappointed. Sorry! (It’s AC and Far Cry.) https://t.co/7hKDV3y5QS
