On September 10, 2022, the Ubisoft Forward 2022 event took place in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The publisher and developer of video games, Ubisoft, has invited media representatives, content creators and fans of the brand to come and discover the next games.
We were invited to visit the Ubisoft premises for the occasion to enjoy the conferences, meals and drinks, contests and some activities on site.

Ubisoft Forward 2022 on site
In Montreal, the presentations and contests were presented by Carl-Edwin Michel who we find in many gaming events.
If Ubisoft’s premises are very suitable for developing video games with large rooms filled with computers and offices, they are a little less so when it comes to inviting more than 200 people and showing lectures. So some people spent more than two hours standing watching the lectures on screens, and sometimes behind plants because there was no room elsewhere. The event took place on 2 floors and the terrace, but the sound of the subwoofers of one floor reverberated on the floor below, and made the experience difficult.
All this is quite normal since the premises are not adapted to this kind of practice. Nevertheless, I would like to highlight the welcome and kindness of the entire UbiSoft team present on site. They were aware of the imperfections and will improve in the next iteration.
All the guests were pampered and received mugs, hats, mouse pads, pen as a gift. Only I am critical of everything, but you know to know me. ^^
And without further ado here is the photo gallery:
I really like the work of ubisoft artists as seen above, it’s so fabulous and it’s so many hours of work.
Many thanks to Ubisoft for the invitation.
