Ubisoft Forward officially returns on 12 June 2023 at 10:00 am PT, and while it’s no longer part of E3 as originally announced, it appears Ubisoft still has major plans for the show. In a blog update, the developer and publisher confirmed a number of games set to appear during proceedings.

So far, the announced games include:

Of these, there’s already some surprising inclusions. Notably, Assassin’s Creed: Codename Jade has largely remained a mystery since it was announced at Ubisoft Forward in late 2022. At the time, it was revealed to be a mobile game set in Ancient China, in the year 623.

A brief trailer detailed a custom character creator for the game, which hinted that players would be able to create their own Assassin to send on a variety of missions. We’ll likely get more details on this feature, and how it plays into a wider story, when Ubisoft Forward 2023 airs.

It’s equally intriguing to see Assassin’s Creed: Nexus VR on the list of planned reveals. This game’s appearance at Ubisoft Forward was recently confirmed in the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase, where a full reveal was promised.

We can likely expect the same for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, the ambitious adventure spin-off set in James Cameron’s renowned sci-fi world. This game was originally circling a 2023 launch, but has since been pushed back. An update in any form is very welcome.
