What games are being shown at Ubisoft Forward?

As previously stated, the stream will kick off slightly before the pre-show, which will last an hour. The main show will then last 45 minutes, and will be succeeded by a post-show event.

According to Ubisoft themselves, the “stream kicks off at 10:30 AM PDT/07:30 PM CEST with news and content from games like Trackmania, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Just Dance 2020, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, and more.”

This is then followed by the main show, which will provide “details from Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, Hyper Scape, and a few surprises”. One of these ‘surprises’ will be Far Cry 6.

Prior to the start of the event, Ubisoft tweeted to inform their followers that the even will indeed be pre-recorded.

Their statement reads: “Ubisoft Forward comes during a time of big internal change. Because all the content has been pre-recorded, we wanted to recognize that the issues we’re currently dealing with won’t be addressed directly in the show. We still have significant work to do and are committed to this process. We will provide more updates soon.”
