French third party publisher Ubisoft has confirmed that, despite some major conference shake ups at the Electronic Entertainment Expo this year in Los Angeles, Ubisoft at least will not be changing course. The developer of games like Assassin’s Creed and The Division will indeed be holding a press conference at E3 2019.

With The Division 2 and Far Cry: New Dawn already released this year, combined with the fact that Assassin’s Creed will be skipping 2019, there’s a question of what Ubisoft might have in store for their show this year. During a recent financial call, the publisher said they plan to release three to four AAA games before the next fiscal year. Rumors have been swirling about a new Watch Dogs set in London for a number of months, as well as ever-present rumors of Splinter Cell.
This could also, in theory, be the year Ubisoft commits to Beyond Good & Evil 2’s release date. The game has been a fixture at Ubisoft’s last two E3 shows, which makes it at least likely to show up in some form. I’d also say the time is right for a new Mario Rabbids game.
What do you think Ubisoft will show at their E3 2019 show?
