Welcome to our live blog coverage of Ubisoft’s 2017 E3 Media Briefing
Assassin’s Creed: Origins and Far Cry 5 are the big guns that will probably be given the most attention this year, but we’re sure to see more on South Park, Mario + Rabbids, and Just Dance. Will we finally get some progress on Beyond Good and Evil 2? Are they really making a sequel to The Crew? Also, Ubi has been going strong in the VR arena with Star Trek: Bridge Crew and Eagle Flight, it’s definitely possible that we see something new for VR as well.
Thanks for joining us today! I’m Mike Dunn, Executive Producer & Editor-at-Large. Our away team will be joining us live from the event, while a few of us are at home, just like you. The event starts at 10 AM PDT, but lets get some quick introductions of who’s posting before we start talking predictions:

One thing we probably won’t see is the hyperactive host from the last few years, Aisha Tyler. Rumor is the devs will be taking center stage instead. It’s questionable as to which scenario will be the most awkward…

Morning all – Ron Burke, Editor in Chief for Gaming Trend here at Ubisoft. Still 1.5 hours out but let’s see if we can get some predictions going.

I’m betting we see IBM Watson integration with Star Trek Bridge Crew and a release date for that functionality (and hope it’s soon)

< /div>

Ron Burke 11:33 AM
Yes. That’d be amazing. A “expansion in the works” would be great too. They need not say more than that to make me happy.

Mike Dunn 11:34 AM
Other than that, I’d love to see some new expansive VR stuff. Microsoft really let us down there

Ron Burke 11:48 AM
Do I dare hold out hope for a Splinter Cell, Beyond Good and Evil 2, or Prince of Persia? I don’t think I can. I’d just be sad for another year.

< /div>

Ron Burke 11:48 AM
As sure as the sun rises, however, we will get another Just Dance title!

Just Dance World Cup just got some “Whooooo” from the crowd, and not the developer section. Big move-in fans in attendance today.

I’ve heard from a few folks that this conference is going to have some “huge surprises” this year. Eager to see it!

Next up, the team is reflecting on how passionate the Rainbow Six Siege community, and how that feedback is improving the Pulse gadget.
