Ubisoft is still one of the biggest names in video games, meaning players are expecting to hear lots of announcements from the publisher at E3 2019. The kind folks at Ubisoft have given fans plenty of details of what they can anticipate seeing at the upcoming show, including games in hot series such as Watch Dogs, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, and The Division.
Ubisoft | What to expect at E3 2019
Unlike a lot of other developers and publishers, Ubisoft has more or less directly stated what fans can expect to see from the company at E3 2019. These titles include some familiar series as well as a couple of new releases, notably including upcoming release Ghost Recon Breakpoint as well as the recently leaked-then-unveiled game Watch Dogs Legion.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint
The latest that the Tom Clancy's video game series has to offer was first revealed just under a month ago. Titled Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the upcoming release from Ubisoft Paris returns to the Ghost Recon series in a direct follow-up to 2017's Ghost Recon Wildlands. Ubisoft hasn't said exactly what fans will learn about Breakpoint during the presentation, but given that the game is slated to release on October 4, it's likely that Ubi will drop just about every buzzworthy detail it has left to offer.
Watch Dogs Legion
It was likely meant to be a surprise held just for E3, but the fun was spoiled when Amazon UK accidentally leaked details about Watch Dogs Legion, the third game in the action-adventure series. For now, almost nothing about the game is known, but since Ubisoft didn't want to let Amazon steal its thunder, the publisher went ahead and confirmed that Watch Dogs Legion would appear at E3 2019 in the announcement tweet featured above.
The Division 2
Given that The Division 2 only recently released, Ubisoft is still deep in continued support. Though we don't necessarily expect any big reveals, it's very likely that Ubi will talk more on new plans for The Division 2 and spell out some of the things players can anticipate seeing in future updates.
Ubisoft releases a new Just Dance just about every year, and by now fans have come to expect the new game to be announced with a flashy and elaborate dance number on stage at E3.
With that said, there are several games and series we almost certainly won't be seeing from Ubisoft at E3. The company has already gone on the record as saying the Assassin's Creed series, Beyond Good and Evil, and new naval adventure Skull and Bones will not be in attendance. Unfortunately, fans hoping to learn more about either will simply have to make do without any extra details for the time being.
We expect to see much more about Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Watch Dogs Legion at Ubisoft's E3 2019 press conference. Beyond that, there are a few thing we can reasonably anticipate, but we know for certain that Beyond Good and Evil 2, Assassin's Creed, and Skull and Bones won't be making an appearance.
