Ubisoft’s not-E3 event coming September – new Skull & Bones reveal this week

Two separate Ubisoft Forward presentations are now scheduled, with the first coming this week and showing off Skull & Bones.

While plenty of big name publishers were happy to take part in Summer Game Fest, Ubisoft skipped the event entirely and, at the time, said it had no plans for new game reveals at all this summer.

However, we did recently get new gameplay details and footage for its Nintendo collaboration Mario + Rabbids Sparks Of Hope and now the company has announced not one but two Ubisoft Forward events.

The first is happening in only a couple of days on Friday, July 7, where we will see Ubisoft finally talk about its pirate multiplayer game Skull & Bones.

The company has barely discussed the game in any official capacity for years, with there being several reports detailing its troubled development and regular internal reboots.

It’s recently been claimed that the game will launch this November, so we may see an official release date during the presentation, especially if Ubisoft still plans to have it out this fiscal year.

At the very least, we’re promised new gameplay footage, with the presentation to start airing at 7pm BST.

The second Ubisoft Forward isn’t until September 10 and details on that one are much slimmer. All Ubisoft has said is that it will feature ‘exciting news on upcoming games from our teams around the world.’

We can probably assume there’ll be a new trailer for Avatar: Frontiers Of Pandora, but Ubisoft also has plenty of free-to-play projects, like The Division: Heartland, that we still barely know anything about.

Not to mention projects that are currently suffering development troubles like the Prince Of Persia remake and Beyond Good & Evil 2, both of which still lack a release window.
