This time of the year is home to various game announcements and feature presentations, with many publishers holding E3-like conventions to showcase their upcoming titles. Ubisoft is joining the fray with two particular dates in mind; tomorrow, July 7, sees the surprise reveal of Skull and Bones, a project pushed back numerous times and began development back in 2013. September 10 will see a publisher-wide conference that will most probably reveal more about Ubisoft’s upcoming yearly offerings, including games within the Tom Clancy series and its long-running Assassin’s Creed franchise.

First up is the Ubisoft Forward Spotlight on Skull and Bones which will air tomorrow, July 7. You can tune in to various Ubisoft media channels (YouTube and Twitch) at the following times to check it out:

  • 11:00 a.m. PT
  • 2:00 p.m. ET
  • 2:00 a.m. HKT (July 8)
  • 8:00 p.m. CEST

Next up is the main Ubisoft Forward showcase, set to air on September 10. As is with tomorrow’s broadcast, you can tune in to the same media channels (YouTube and Twitch) as well as Forward’s official website to check out the stream at the following times:

  • 12:00 p.m. PT
  • 3:00 p.m. ET
  • 3:00 a.m. HKT (July 8)
  • 9:00 p.m. CEST

As for what we can expect from the main Forward showcase, at the time of writing Ubisoft has not confirmed the titles that will be presented. That said, it will be unsurprising to see their main hitters like Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry miss the presentation, so fans of both series would do well to save the date. It’s been two years since the release of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, so the series is ripe for another entry if we’re going by Ubisoft’s two-year development cycle.

Another project worth looking out for is Beyond Good and Evil 2, which has gone without formal updates from Ubisoft for quite some time now. Michel Ancel left Ubisoft in 2020, which has not boded well for the game. Its creative direction and vision can all be attributed to Ancel, who developed the first title. Ubisoft has maintained throughout Ancel’s departure that the game is still on the way, and this Ubisoft Forward may be the audience’s first proper look at the title.
