Ubisoft Pulls Out of E3 And Will Host Ubisoft Forward In Mid June
For years, E3 was the premiere video game expo, where fans and journalists from around the world would gather to enjoy video games. At the convention, the biggest video game companies would make massive announcements, release trailers and have playable demos. Unfortunately, the pandemic and other factors took its toll, including the fact that major companies now have their own show. Ubisoft, one of the biggest video game publishers, have announced its withdrawal from E3 2023. It will host Ubisoft Forward, a live event, on June 12th, in Los Angeles.
Furthermore, a spokesperson of the company told VGC, “E3 has fostered unforgettable moments across the industry throughout the years…While we initially intended to have an official E3 presence, we’ve made the subsequent decision to move in a different direction, and will be holding a Ubisoft Forward Live event on June 12 in Los Angeles. We look forward to sharing more details with our players very soon.”
Moreover, interested fans can still tune into E3 2023 from June 13th to 16th online. The event will take place in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, many other companies such as Level Infinite, SEGA, Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony Interactive Entertainment have stated that they will not be present at the show. Therefore, fans are wondering what the main attraction to E3 is and the likelihood of a bright and prosperous future.
