The past year has been very busy for the studio as it has been working on major titles. In addition, almost all big franchises from the studio are planning an update soon. Therefore, E3 2021 would be the perfect time to make any announcements regarding all of these.

One of the most anticipated games being released by the French developer soon is Far Cry 6. The studio recently gave fans the first look at the official gameplay trailer for the game, along with almost half an hour of background on the storyline. One of the developers also joined in on the event to give his two cents on the mindset of the studio while working on the game.

With Far Cry 6 launching on October 7, there is a lot more that fans have yet to see. Therefore, Ubisoft can definitely drop some of the content during its ‘Forward’ event at E3 2021. It could be yet another trailer, a demo release, or some behind-the-scenes footage working with actors such as Giancarlo Esposito, who played Gus Fring in the blockbuster TV show, Breaking Bad.

Updates expected on Prince of Persia and Rainbow Six Quarantine

The Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake was a highly anticipated game up until Ubisoft released the trailer for the same. If the trailer wasn’t disappointing enough, the studio also had to push the game’s release. Since then, there has been no word on what is going on with the remake. So once again, E3 2021 is the perfect chance for the French developer to redeem itself for everything it did wrong with Sands of Time.

The Rainbow Six franchise is ready to receive its 14th installment in 2021. However, the last piece of news surrounding the title wasn’t entirely positive. Due to the ongoing pandemic, Ubisoft decided not to go forward with the name Rainbow Six Quarantine. While the name might have hit a snag, the game is still on schedule. Therefore, fans can expect further news about it at E3 2021.

Finally, Ubisoft has also promised to finally release Beyond Good and Evil 2 in 2021 itself. Therefore, with only a few months left till the big reveal, the developers will surely come out with a few more trailers, of which some can make an appearance at the virtual expo.
