Ubisoft brought us another one of their Forward events this week, in which the publisher showcased its up and coming titles, as well as updates to some of its existing catalogue.
There were a lot of talking points in coming out of the Forward event, and Ubisoft showed us quite a range of titles that the developer is working on. From updates to Rainbow Six Seige, The Division 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint, to the re-release of the now hotly anticipated Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game Complete Edition. The publisher seems to be heading towards quite a busy 2021.
