Ubisoft backs out of E3 2023, plans to host original event in June

Assassin’s CreedFar Cry, and Rainbow Six publisher Ubisoft has announced it will not attend E3 2023.

As reported by VGC, the company now plans to hold a Ubisoft Forward Live event on June 12, 2023, but will not have a presence on the E3 show floor.

“E3 has fostered unforgettable moments across the industry throughout the years,” said a Ubisoft spokesperson. “While we initially intended to have an official E3 presence, we’ve made the subsequent decision to move in a different direction, and will be holding a Ubisoft Forward Live event on 12th June in Los Angeles. We look forward to sharing more details with our players very soon.”

The announcement comes as a surprise since Ubisoft was among several publishers confirmed to be at E3 2023, but obviously, schedules change and all that. Nintendo and Microsoft are among the other major gaming companies skipping out on E3’s return as an in-person event.

Ubisoft has quite a selection of exciting games in development. There’s Skull & BonesAssassin’s Creed MirageAvatar: Frontiers of Pandoraand supposedly another Far Cry installment. We don’t know if any of these will be at the upcoming Ubisoft Forward, but there’s a good chance – especially since it’ll probably be the publisher’s biggest broadcast of 2023.
