Although there’s no E3 this year, several publishers are holding their traditional press conferences during the same week – some as part of Summer Game Fest instead.

That includes Ubisoft, which will hold an in-person press event in Los Angeles on Monday 12 June 2023. It’ll also be available to watch live online for those who haven’t managed to get to the US.

A few details on what we can expect during the show have been revealed already, so here’s how to watch the latest Ubisoft Forward and what might be announced.
