Ubisoft has confirmed the date and time of its E3 2017 press conference. The company is just one of several massive, planned events for the annual industry bash, with EA, Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony all set to host E3 2017 events.
On Twitter, Ubisoft revealed that its #UbiE3 press conference will take place on Monday, June 12 at 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM in the UK and 10PM in the rest of Europe. As always, the event will be streamed live online, allowing fans across the globe to tune in and marvel at all of the big reveals and announcements.
Speaking of potential E3 2017 announcements from Ubisoft, much of what the company has to show has already been confirmed or, at the very least, hinted at and highly rumored. For example, earlier today the company confirmed that Far Cry 5 will be released within this financial year, meaning that the game would come before March 31, 2018 and it’s unlikely that Ubisoft would skip such an opportunity to announce its game on such a huge stage. Ubisoft has also said that racing game sequel The Crew 2 is on the way, and so fans ready to burn rubber on virtual streets should anticipate announcements on that front, too.

One of the main parts of the press conference, though, will come in the shape of Assassin’s Creed. The next game in the stealth series is said to be called Assassin’s Creed: Origins and for weeks details about the title have been leaking out. Just today, there came speculation that the game would not have multiplayer nor naval combat and so many fans will be keen to see how exactly Ubisoft plans to keep them entertained in the absence of these selling points.
Another possibility for the press conference includes the official reveal of the company’s much rumored Raving Rabbids and Mario RPG for Nintendo Switch. Although neither Nintendo nor Ubisoft have released statements confirming that the turn-based game really exists, several anonymous sources over the past few months have said that the game is in development, and Ubisoft itself has teased the game, with Mario-themed Rabbids figurines. Smart money’s on a reveal at the event, but E3 is the season of shocks and surprises, so anything could happen.
Again, Ubisoft‘s E3 2017 press conference will take place on Monday, June 12 at 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM in the UK and 10PM in the rest of Europe.
