Here’s the time and date – plus everything else you need to know – for Ubisoft’s E3 2021 press conference, also known as Ubisoft Forward.
Ubisoft has been reasonably upfront with its E3 2021 plans. This year’s Ubisoft Forward broadcast will include gameplay and trailers for Rainbow Six Extraction, formerly known as Rainbow Six Quarantine, and a deep dive on the publisher’s upcoming exploration of political discontent, Far Cry 6.
Extreme sports jamboree Riders Republic will also make an appearance, and there will be more content from the company’s film and television division.
Before the press conference, there will also be updates on For Honor, Trackmania, The Crew 2, Brawlhalla, and Watch Dogs: Legion. And, following the show, there will be a new Rainbow Six Siege Community Briefing.
Here’s when and where you can catch this year’s E3 press conference.
When is the E3 2021 Ubisoft press conference?
You can watch the E3 2021 Ubisoft Forward event on June 12 at the following time:
- 12:00 pm (PDT)
- 3:00 pm (EDT)
- 8:00 pm (BST)
- 9:00 pm (CEST)
Where can you watch the Ubisoft E3 2021 press conference?
You’ll find the live stream on Ubisoft’s official YouTube and Twitch channels. (Actual stream links TBC.)
What else can we expect to see from Ubisoft at E3 2021?
Although the publisher has been clear on its plans, we are hoping for a few surprises. Some titles that are long in development may also get an outing.
- Rumours suggest that the Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, and The Division franchises will merge in a new F2P class-based shooter.
- With Michel Ancel departing Ubisoft last year, the status of Beyond Good and Evil 2 and Wild is unknown. Will they make an appearance? Don’t hold your breath.
- And hold it even longer if you are hoping for an update on the revamped Skull & Bones.
- A sequel to Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle could be a possibility, however.
I guess we’ll have to live in hope for a sequel to Ubisoft’s 1994 karting game, Street Racer.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
