PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo might be skipping out on E3 2023, but it sounds like Ubisoft is quite interested in participating in the annual event this year. The company recently announced that it had plans to attend E3 should it happen with promises of “a lot of things to show.”
During Ubisoft’s Q3 2022-23 investors call, CEO Yves Guillemot replied to a question asking if the company had plans to attend E3 this year. “If E3 happens, we will be there and we will have a lot of things to show,” Guillemot responded. “If E3 happens” sounds like there’s still some uncertainty if the show will move ahead this year despite the ESA already confirming dates. This may be due to the big three pulling out of the show, but it may still go on with several other notable publishers including Ubisoft, it seems.

Ubisoft may live up to its promise of having a lot of things to show. Last month, a massive leak revealed eleven games that Ubisoft plans to release in 2023. This list includes the likes of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which may have a big presence at E3 as well as the recently announced The Crew Motorfest – both are currently without release dates but are expected to release in 2023.
Other upcoming Ubisoft titles that have yet to receive proper deep dives include Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and The Division: Heartland. Skull and Bones has been delayed countless times so it’s possible that fans may get yet another look at the game during E3 before its inevitable new release date. To address the elephant in the room, it’s unclear what’s happening with Beyond Good and Evil 2 at the moment so don’t hold your breath for it to show up in any capacity this year.
A report earlier this year claimed that both Far Cry 7 and a multiplayer Far Cry game were in development, though we don’t know how far along they are or whether the games would actually be unveiled this year.
It sounds like Ubisoft will indeed attend E3 but may host its own Ubisoft Forward event around the same time should plans fall through.
