“Hello, and welcome to a special episode of The Nerd Stash Show!

Another Ubisoft Forward Event Is Coming Later This Year
Although Ubisoft showcased a few of their upcoming games like Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, and Far Cry 6, there were some notable games missing from the event. That said, we could see those games turn up later in the year. During the Ubisoft Forward event, CEO Yves Guillemot said:
“We haven’t shown you everything yet. In fact, we have a lot more to come, so you will have another Ubisoft Forward to reveal even more about our upcoming games.”
So, we don’t know when exactly we’ll see the next Ubisoft Forward showcase but fans can take a sigh of relief knowing that they could still see some new Beyond Good and Evil 2 or Gods and Monsters footage later this year.
