Ubisoft officially announced its E3 2021 event. Dubbed Ubisoft Forward, it will add to the series of digital conferences Ubisoft has held over the last year. This one feels a bit special though, as it’s taking place during a time where many of us expect to see plenty of exciting gaming news. While details about the event itself are thin, here’s when and where you can watch it, as well as some guesses at what Ubisoft might show.
When is the Ubisoft Forward E3 2021 Conference?
Ubisoft’s digital conference takes place on June 12 at 12pm PDT, 3pm EDT, and 8pm BST. If you’re tuning in from Australia, that’s June 13 at 5am AEST.

What Ubisoft Games Might Be Shown at E3 2021?
When it comes to news on games or other content Ubisoft has planned for its E3 2021 conference, we’re still waiting to hear more. Not much has been revealed outside of the date and time its supposed to air. That said, we can speculate a bit about what could be shown based on recent news.
It’s no secret many of Ubisoft’s games were plagued by development delays over the last year. Many were pushed to this year or later into this year, which could mean we’ll hear more about them come E3. If we look at the lineup of games listed as “coming soon” in the Ubisoft Store, Far Cry 6, Rainbow Six: Quarantine, Riders Republic, and Roller Champions all seem like good candidates for Ubisoft’s conference. The same goes for the recently announced The Division Heartland.
Far Cry 6 was delayed earlier this year but still has a release window of 2021. Rainbow Six: Quarantine was also delayed but is supposed to launch before September 30, 2021 (per a third-quarter earnings call). Roller Champions and Riders Republic were delayed but still have release windows in 2021. The Division Heartland was recently announced and slated for 2021, as well.
Other titles like the Avatar game, Skull & Bones, Beyond Good & Evil, and even Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time could make the cut, but with many of their release windows being a bit further out and/or updates on them being slim, it likely lowers the chances of them being shown. The Avatar game from Massive Entertainment was delayed in late 2020 and now has a window between April 2021 to March 2022. Earlier this year, Skull & Bones was delayed for a third time, in a window between 2022 to 2023. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake was delayed earlier this year and is expected to release before April 2022.
Hopefully, Ubisoft reveals some information about what it intends to show so we can have something concrete to look forward to. We’d love to get some updates on Beyond Good & Evil and Skull & Bones, even if it’s a peek at what the studios have been working on. That said, we encourage you to check back here as we’ll be updating this hub with more details as they come out.
