During Ubisoft’s financial earnings call yesterday, CEO Yves Guillemot announced that Ubisoft will be at E3 in 2023 and “will have a lot of things to show”.
With rumors already circulating the internet of the likes of the Splinter Cell Remake, Far Cry 7, and Star Wars making appearances, Insider Gaming has reached out to its source to ask what is likely to be expected during its showcase.
There’s no denying that Ubisoft has a lot in the pipeline and this year’s E3 is likely to focus on what the publisher has to offer for the next 12 months. Insider Gaming has already learned that Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Assassin’s Creed Nexus, its VR offering, are a guarantee for the event (unless there’s a delay). Assassin’s Creed Codename Red and Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe are likely to be revealed at a later time.
Sources have revealed that Ubisoft is now “rather skittish” when it comes to announcing and giving dates to their upcoming titles and will be more hesitant moving forward. With games like Skull and Bones being delayed 6 times publically and Beyond Good and Evil is in development for well… Forever, it’s not surprising if such a decision has been made.
As for surprises, we’ve been told that there is a single-player game planned to be announced for a neglected franchise – But unfortunately, it’s not Rayman.
With everything we know so far, here’s what we think is a guarantee for the Ubisoft E3 Showcase, unless the games have been released prior to the show:
Just Dance 2024
Assassin’s Creed Mirage
Assassin’s Creed Nexus
The Division Heartland
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
Skull & Bones
The Crew: Motorfest
Mario: Sparks of Hope DLC 2 (DLC 1 The Tower of Doom to be announced and released soon)
It’s unclear if Ubisoft’s mobile games will be featured at the event, but we know that Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade, The Division Mobile, and Rainbow 6 Mobile are all slated to release within FY24 (April 2023 – March 2024) – So they could be there, too!
As for games like Beyond Good and Evil 2, Splinter Cell Remake, Massive Entertainment’s Star Wars game, Far Cry 7, and more, we strongly believe that these will all be announced at a later point. With the exception of Beyond Good and Evil 2, all of these projects are very early in development, so if they are at the event, I wouldn’t expect anything more than a cinematic trailer.
As for other games like the Immortals Fenyx Rising sequel, codenamed Oxygen, and the next Ghost Recon titles, codenamed Over, details on those titles are unclear.
Of course, it’s still early days and things could change, but if we hear something new up until the event, we’ll let you know!
