The video game industry’s premier event for revealing new titles, E3, will happen on June 13-15. Announced titles, rumored releases, and entirely new IPs can be expected to be announced on this event. Here’s what we know about the upcoming E3 2017.
Many Big Names As Expected
As seen on the official E3 site, many companies will take part in this large event. Many large developers and publishers like Atlus, Square Enix, Activision, Capcom, Ubisoft and Bethesda are confirmed to show up. Meanwhile, other companies like THQ Nordic Games, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and Take-Two Interactive will also be present on this occasion.
Many Things Prepared
Peeking at the dedicated page of the each of the listed game companies will reveal lists of their products to show on E3. ATLUS/SEGA’s page has around 103 products, Ubisoft has 43, and Bandai Namco only has Ni No Kuni 2 confirmed along with 19 other products. Not all of their vague products are necessarily games and not every title may be announced on the main stage, though. However, the quantity of new content to be released this E3 2017 can’t be ignored if this is the case.
Games That Need Follow Ups
Many games announced last 2016 didn’t have any follow-up information as the months passed by. Sony’s Days Gone, and the new God of War didn’t get any updates after they were announced at E3 2016. Other games like Ace Combat 7, Quake Champions, and Project Octopath Traveler didn’t have as much media presence as expected after they were announced in the previous E3 and Nintendo Switch reveal event. Potentially, they might get the chance for having the main stage spotlight as most of the companies have revealed many of their larger titles as of 2016 and early 2017.
Still No Rockstar
E3’s company list doesn’t have Rockstar on its list of attending companies. Red Dead Redemption 2’s release date is yet to be announced. Rockstar will have wait for two months on Gamescom to announce details about this game. The company has never been fond of attending E3 which makes it a notable fact if they do show up on the event. At best, we might see Red Dead Redemption 2 on the main console company shows like Sony or Microsoft to see a new game up. For now, we’ll just have to wait for a few more weeks until E3 2017 to see newer titles to look forward to in the coming months.
