What to expect from Ubisoft Forward?
This Saturday (10th) the Ubisoft Forwarda live event that should bring a lot of news about the producer’s main releases for PC and consoles — and maybe even for cell phones — scheduled for the coming months.
The presentation should please fans of the French developer, especially players who can’t wait for the next games in the series. Assassin’s Creed. Ubi also promises to release updates on games that are on the way and being produced by several of its studios around the world.
What games will be featured in Ubisoft Forward?
So far, the producer itself has already confirmed the presence of some games that will appear during the online event, such as the Nintendo Switch exclusive Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope. Another one that is already guaranteed is Skull and Bonesthe title that seems to bet heavily on the mechanics of pirate ships that has been successful since it was first presented in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and that should be one of the biggest releases of the developer this year.
Speaking of the Assassin’s Creed series, Ubisoft claims to be planning to deliver a special presentation in which fans will have the chance to get “a peek at what the future holds for this franchise”. This leads us to believe that the producer should talk not only about the recently confirmed Assassin’s Creed Miragebut also about other projects like the very ambitious (and mysterious) Assassin’s Creed Infinity.
Recent rumors point to several Assassin’s Creed titles being in production. AC Project Red, for example, would be the long-awaited franchise game set in Japan. Already AC Project Hexe set in 16th century Europe and be the “darkest” release of the entire franchise so far. The rumor also points to Project Jade, which would be being developed for cell phones and whose plot would unfold in China. Finally, the rumor cites the announcement of last DLC of Assassin’s Creed Valhallaconcluding the story of Eivor.
The company is also expected to reveal news about some of its top live service titles, such as Rainbow Six Siege, For Honor and Roller Championsshowing gamers what they can expect to come to their games as favorite services.
Brawlhalla can also end up showing up, as well as series titles Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, The Division, Just Dance, Far cry and Watch Dogs, for example. Ubisoft has a very strong catalog of franchises, all of which have a lot of potential to appear in the digital presentation both with advertisements as DLCs for current titles and in the form of announcements of new releases.
Going a little deeper into the world of speculation, rumors have been pointing to a possible spin-off of Immortals: Fenyx Rising rather than a sequel, the online event being a perfect opportunity to announce a new iteration of the series. We can’t also forget that the producer has other confirmed projects still in the pipeline, such as XDefiant, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and even a franchise open world game Star Warsso it wouldn’t be strange to see news about these titles this Saturday.
Finally, with the announcement of the recent increase in Tencent’s investment in the French company’s shares, it is possible that we will also see news about games from the main Ubi franchises for cell phones. Who knows, maybe there’s a new Assassin’s Creed for iOS and Android?
