Ubisoft’s online showcase, Ubisoft Forward, returns tomorrow and all signs suggest it could be a doozy of a show.
So far Ubisoft has confirmed that there will be brand-new updates on the upcoming Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope and Skull and Bones, and a special Assassin’s Creed showcase that will unveil the future of the franchise.
You’ll want to make sure you tune in on September 10th at 12pm PT / 9pm CEST for the main show, which we’re already suspecting could be hiding a few secrets.
Although, it might also be worth turning on for the pre-show starting at 7:35 PM (BST) with news on the latest seasons, characters, and content from Brawlhalla, For Honor, The Crew 2, Anno 1800, and more. So don’t worry, all your existing Ubisoft favourites will be covered in depth too.
If there’a any news ahead of the show, we’ll drop it here.
Ahead of Ubisoft Forward on Saturday GameSpot has revealed a lot of new story details and gameplay snippets for The Division Resurgence, Ubisoft’s upcoming free-to-play mobile title.
You can get a little taste of what to expect just below on the YouTube clip we’ve embedded:
In addition, executive producer Fabrice Navrez confirmed that The Division Resurgence would also be part of the Ubisoft Forward Event, so we might be able to expect more gameplay and potentially a confirmed release date for the game.

Ubisoft Forward Leaks
Unfortunately there’s no such thing as secrets in the gaming industry anymore, with so many details leaking ahead of most big shows these days.
Ubisoft Forward is no different, and whilst Ubi might have formally told fans to expect updates on Assassin’s Creed, Mario + Rabbids and Skull and Bones, it looks like there’s a number of other games which could be announced and/or teased on the night.
For one ‘The Division Heartland’, a free-to-play shooter first announced in 2021, could be on the billing after the game appeared to briefly show up on the Ubisoft website, along with plenty more details and screenshots of the game before it was unceremoniously pulled. It included the games official description, which you can read just below:
“Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland is a free-to-play survival-action multiplayer shooter set in small-town Middle America. Play as one of six agents and select between three classes each match, all with their own perks and skills.”
In addition, there’s lots of rumours that the Assassin’s Creed showcase might reveal plenty more than the already leaked ‘Assassin’s Creed Mirage‘ game, with some suggesting we might see our first real details for the live service Assassin’s Creed Infinity game that’s currently in production.
Some even believe that we might see some sort of Splinter Cell news, after players discovered that Rainbow Six Siege’s new season contained a new skin (at tier 100) with a qr code on it. “When the code is scanned it brings up “Sam%20Fisher%20is%20watching%20you”” redditors claim. But we all know it’s not worth getting too excited over a return for Sam Fisher given the way previous Ubisoft shows have gone.
There was also that (now debunked) rumor of Ubisoft making a Blade Game. Sure, it was squashed by Ubisoft themselves, but we’d certainly be keen to know exactly what the game was they were making all the same.
As we’ve mentioned, it looks like it could be quite a show, and you’d be silly not to tune in on the night. Don’t worry though, we’ll drop any new trailers in just below so you can catch up on Monday for all the latest news if you already have other plans.
