E3 Predictions 2018: Ubisoft
Ubisoft will hold their 2018 E3 conference on Monday 11th June at 1pm PT/ 9pm BST.
Here are 5 predictions for their show.
Splinter Cell Gameplay
If Ubisoft does indeed reveal Splinter Cell with a trailer on the Microsoft stage then they would surely look to follow up that reveal with some gameplay at their own show. This would help potentially bring more eyes to their presentation as well as offer fans a better look at how the game will play.
The Division 2
In March of this year Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft announced that The Division 2 was in development and to expect more at E3. How much they show though is still in question and I would guess that, as it has already been announced, it has a big presence at their show and they give fans a good look at gameplay and how they have evolved the series.
Watch Dogs 3
Ubisoft has built Watch Dogs to be a core pilar of its releases with the 2014 original and 2016 Watch Dogs 2 so it would make sense to see a Watch Dogs 3 this year in 2018. Watch Dogs 2 made big improvements over its original and gained good reviews from outlets so it will be interesting to see how Ubisoft progresses the series if it is announced.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 Trailer
Last year at E3 Ubisoft dropped a bombshell at the end of their conference when they announced Beyond Good and Evil 2 was in development via a fantastic CGI trailer. Now from what they said last year the game was in the very early stages of development so don’t expect any gameplay this year but I would be shocked if Ubisoft didn’t continue to tease fans and remind people that this game is happening with another great trailer.
Prince of Persia
Prince of Persia was a long standing beloved series that fell off the boil however I could completely see them reviving the series. With great action and fun gameplay mechanics a remake would feel right at home in 2018 and it could potentially add another pilar to Ubisoft’s tent pole titles as well as taking some of the weight off of Assassins Creed shoulders.
Those are my five predictions for Ubisoft’s E3 conference but what do you think they will show? Let me know in the comments.
