(Pocket-lint) - After E3 2020 was canceled, Ubisoft naturally had to cancel its annual press conference - usually held the day before the show. In its place, the French games publisher held an online-only event in July, and now, with a new installment of Ubisoft Forward, it announced even more.
Here are the details you need to know.
When was Ubisoft Forward September 2020?
The last Ubisoft Forward was held Thursday 10 September at 12pm PDT. There was also a "pre-show" available to watch, starting an hour before.
