Ubisoft has a lot of games coming out very soon and a few live service titles to keep chugging along, so we're about due for another showcase. As previously promised, there'll be another Ubisoft Forward presentation this month, and it's coming up soon: September 10 is the day to watch.
The show is scheduled to start in earnest at 12 p.m. PT / 3 p.m. ET that day, streaming live on Ubisoft's official Forward site. There'll also be a pre-show an hour before that, but you can bet that the biggest game announcements will be saved for the main event.
It won't (or rather, it shouldn't) just be a time for Ubisoft to talk about games like Watch Dogs: Legion and Rainbow Six Siege, though. Ahead of the first Ubisoft Forward in July, the company released a statement saying it would not address the outpouring of harrowing abuse and harassment allegations that rocked the company a month earlier during the Forward show.
Since then, more reports concerning a toxic culture at Ubisoft have emerged and several high profile employees accused of abuses have either stepped down or been fired. The company has also courted criticism for using Black Lives Matter-associated imagery in association with the villains of a new Tom Clancy mobile title. Ubisoft promises that it will include a message demonstrating its commitment to "improving the culture" with this Forward event.
A sizzle reel for the show places a lot of emphasis on Watch Dogs: Legion, due out next month, as well as the recently launched battle royale Hyper Scape. We also see some shots from Rainbow Six Siege (and of Sam Fisher, its new crossover Operator) as well as brief glimpses of what looks to be Immortals: Fenyx Rising, the open-world game from Ubisoft Quebec that was previously titled Gods & Monsters.
Absent from the new Forward trailer are Assassin's Creed Valhalla, slated for release in November, and Far Cry 6 which is due out in February 2021. Immortals (or whatever name Ubisoft settles on for Gods & Monsters) is also expected to come out in early 2021 to make the fiscal year, so don't be surprised if there are more Forward presentations on the way after this one.
