As Ubisoft admitted in a recent statement, the company will not be present at E3 2023 after all. Instead, the “Assassin’s Creed” makers will rely on a new episode of the in-house “Ubisoft Forward” format in June.
A few weeks ago it was confirmed that E3 is set to make a big comeback this year, returning to the public. However, it quickly became apparent that the organizers would have to do without most of the heavyweights in the industry – including Sony Interactive Entertainment, Microsoft and Nintendo.
Only Ubisoft confirmed First of all, its participation in the E3 2023 in June and promised to be present with a “solid line-up” at what was once the most important trade fair for video games. In this case, however, the focus is on the word “initially”. In a recent announcement, the creators of “Assassin’s Creed” and “Far Cry” admitted that they would now be doing without E3 2023.
Rather than making the planned announcements and presentations at E3 2023, Ubisoft will be making a comeback of its proprietary “Ubisoft Forward” format.
