While other publishers drop out, Ubisoft commits itself to an E3 conference date

Ubisoft will hold its 2019 E3 conference at 6 AM BST (11 PM PST) on June 10th.

While competing publisher Electronic Arts has already pulled out of proceedings, and PlayStation will likewise be skipping this year’s event, it’s business as usual for the house of Guillemot at E3 this year. The firm announced a date for its showcase via Twitter (below)

The French publisher has already revealed it’ll be giving Assassin’s Creed a break in 2019. While most of last year’s announcements have since launched, expect more on Skull and Bones and Beyond Good and Evil 2.

There’s also that James Cameron’s Avatar project in development at Ubisoft Massive, which may see first light this summer. Another unannounced sci-fi project teased, then cancelled, then rebooted could likewise warrant mention. That's without mentioning a new entry in hack-em-up series Watch Dogs. 

Ubisoft should be in high spirits this year, having completely shed the spectre of a hostile takeover from Vivendi.
