Earlier this month, the first Ubisoft Forward event gave our best looks yet at Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, and brought a reveal of Far Cry 6. Today, on an earnings call with investors, Ubisoft Chief Financial Planning Officer Frederick Duguet announced that the company will hold another Forward stream in September.
This month's Forward presentation came in the wake of serious allegations of abuse and harassment within Ubisoft, which have prompted investigations, resignations, and promises of greater reorganization and change within the company.
A few hours prior to the show on July 12, Ubisoft released a statement announcing that "because all the content [was] pre-recorded," it would not directly address the allegations or the steps it is taking in response during the show. USgamer has reached out to an Ubisoft representative to ask if September's showcase will also be pre-recorded and if Ubisoft will address the allegations and/or its reorganization efforts during the show.
It's likely that Gods & Monsters (which will be renamed, Ubisoft confirms) and Rainbow Six Quarantine will feature heavily at September's showcase. Both titles were absent at July's Forward but are still targeted for release within Ubisoft's current fiscal year.
Watch Dogs: Legion is launching at the end of October and Assassin's Creed Valhalla will follow on November 17, so the next Forward may not focus as much on those imminent releases. Far Cry 6, which is scheduled for a release in February 2021, could see a gameplay reveal at the show. Of course, it's possible we'll see more from all three titles (as well as Ubisoft's new battle royale Hyper Scape), especially if Ubisoft is able to share more details on its release plans for titles coming to Xbox Series X and PS5 come September.
