Ubisoft will be hosting their own E3-type event in place of the cancelled conference on July 12, 2020. Simply called Ubisoft Forward, the studio will be making new reveals for games while adding more details for existing ones such as Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

The lineup also gives audiences a number of surprises in original games and possible sequels for Ubisoft's collection of franchises. In a brief announcement over their website, a screenshot of a landscape teased the event while it's "an E3-style showcase with plenty of exclusive game news, exciting reveals and much more."

Ubisoft Forward is among some of the digital programs developers are switching to after COVID-19 lead to the cancellation of major annual events.

E3, Gamescom and the Tokyo Game Show are a few traditional industry staples changing their presentations from the worldwide pandemic. For Ubisoft, they've also taken notes from Nintendo's own Direct series of streams as they provided their own content reveals online.

The studio recently showed audiences a first glimpse into Assassin's Creed Valhalla while making an appearance on Inside Xbox's early Series X gameplay reveals to talk about it.

The upcoming event is set to take place on July 12 at 12PM PDT and 3PM EST over major streaming platforms.
