Ubisoft to hold annual event on June 13; bookmark this page.
Ubisoft has announced it will host its annual E3 press conference on June 13. According to a post on its Twitter page, the pre-show will begin at 12:30 PM PT, with the main event following at 1 PM PT. We'll have the live stream embedded here, so save this link and tune in when the stream kicks off to catch it live.
No further details on what will be shown were provided. However, the publisher previously named a number of games it plans to launch by the end of April 2017, which makes them likely candidates for an appearance.
Among these are Watch Dogs 2, For Honor, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Ubisoft has also said it plans to launch "a new high-potential AAA brand with strong digital live services," but did not discuss the game any further.
One game that is unlikely to appear is a new Assassin's Creed. On February 11, Ubisoft officially confirmed there will not be a new Assassin's Creed game in 2016.
"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," the studio said in a statement explaining the decision.
Ubisoft's E3 2016 press conference time is a little earlier than usual, and is actually filing in the slot left vacant by EA. The Star Wars Battlefront, FIFA, and Mirror's Edge publisher won't have a booth at E3 2016, and will instead host events in London and LA called EA Play. The company recently confirmed details on when these will take place and who can attend. Titanfall 2 has been confirmed to appear.
