Ubisoft Forward is fast approaching and the digital event will be packed with news about upcoming titles, as well as a special Assassin’s Creed showcase.
Fans of the series will want to tune in this Saturday to celebrate the 15th anniversary, as well as learn more about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Rumors of the title have been circulating for a while, but Ubisoft only recently confirmed its existence. The reveal has been teased for Ubisoft Forward this weekend, along with more details about the franchise’s future.
Assassin’s Creed news aside, the publisher has also confirmed that it will be releasing updates for a few other series, as well as new IP Skull and Bones. And to entice viewers to hang out during the event, Ubisoft is offering Twitch drop rewards that can be claimed depending on how long you watch the stream.
So if one of those games piques your interest, and you want some in-game freebies, tune in to Ubisoft Forward at Saturday 11 September. You can find the event start times, as well as everything we expect to see during the event, below.

- 12 noon PST
- 5:00 p.m. ET
- 8pm BST
- 5 a.m. ACT (Sunday 11 September)

Ubisoft Forward 2022: What to Expect
Stop by the pre-show to hear “news on the latest seasons, characters and content” from a selection of the live games. So expect updates on Brawlhalla, For Honor, The Crew 2, Anno 1800 and more.
During the main event itself there will be updates on a lot of new titles. We’ve been promised details about Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, Skull and Bones, and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
It sounds like much of the 60 minute event will be devoted to Assassin’s Creed as the franchise gets its own dedicated showcase. Mirage is a return to the series’ roots, with a renewed focus on stealth rather than the open-world RPGs we’ve seen in recent installments.
Rumors also suggest that at least two additional Assassin’s Creed games are in the pipeline: one set in feudal Japan and another set in 16th-century Europe around witch hunts. Given that Ubisoft has been teasing “a glimpse into the future of the franchise”, we can see those rumors finally being addressed.
