Publisher Ubisoft planted its flag for E3 2018 today, confirming on Twitter that it will hold its annual pre-show briefing on Monday, June 11 at 1 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. ET.

The company promises more details to come, but we already have a pretty good idea about what to expect from Ubisoft at E3 2018. One thing’s for certain: Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. Ubisoft confirmed its Division sequel earlier this year and promised more information on the game at E3 in June. We know very little about The Division 2 at this stage, other than that Massive Entertainment is once again leading development with a quintet of Ubisoft studios.

We’re also likely to hear a bit more about two games that were announced at Ubisoft’s E3 2017 press conference: Beyond Good & Evil 2 and Skull and Bones. While we’re just hoping for the former to come out at all, the latter is slated for a fall 2018 release.

Ubisoft also announced last year that it was working on a new game set in James Cameron’s Avatar universe. The next Avatar film is still more than two years away, so this feels like more of a long shot.

If Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed franchises continue their release cadence, we might be due for Watch Dogs 3 later this year. And since Ubisoft brought Michael Ironside back to voice Sam Fisher, we hope that it was for more than just a mission in Ghost Recon Wildlands.

We’re also due for updates on a handful of other Ubisoft projects, including The Crew 2, virtual reality psychological thriller Transference and toys-to-life space game Starlink: Battle for Atlas.

E3 2018 will be held June 12-14 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
