Ubisoft Forward digital showcase confirmed for E3 week in June

Line-up yet to be revealed.

Ubisoft has announced its Ubisoft Forward digital showcase event will be returning this June, delivering a fresh batch of announcements on its upcoming games.

Ubisoft Forward 2021 will take place at 8pm BST/12pm PT on Saturday, 12th June, coinciding with the start of this year's online-only E3 week.

The publisher hasn't yet revealed the games it'll be showcasing during the event - although it says to "stay tuned" for more news on the line-up - but it should be pretty easy to make some educated guesses about what it'll bring.

We've not, for instance, seen much on Far Cry 6, extreme sports effort Riders Republic, the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake, and Rainbow 6 Quarantine (or whatever it might eventually be called), despite all three previously delayed titles being due to launch this year.

It's also possible we'll see more on Assassin's Creed: Valhalla's delayed Ireland expansion, and receive details of the recently confirmed new updates coming to Rainbow 6 Siege in 2021. And if it's outliers you want, perhaps Ubisoft is finally ready to show more of its long-delayed multiplayer pirate adventure Skull and Bones?

Expect more to be revealed in the run-up to Ubisoft Forward's June arrival.
