There was an E3 2017 lineup leak recently, as a list of publishers and new titles recently made it’s way to the Internet. Keep in mind that these are unconfirmed, so it’s not yet clear if these games are truly legitimate. Still, if we see a new Batman and Assassin’s Creed in the big show, there’s no doubt it will be talked about.
According to Up2Play via Arkhamverse, the new Batman game will be shown alongside Middle Earth: Shadow of War for WB Games’ panel. We also see what Ubisoft has planned for the expo, with a new Assassin’s Creed, along with Beyond Good and Evil 2. Just Dance 2017 and South Park: The Fractured But Whole were also shown, but these titles are expected.
Batman and Robin?
Prior to the E3 2017 lineup leak, two very different Batman games were rumored, but never showed up. The most recent one was a sequel to Arkham Origins that would have focused on Batman and Robin. It would detail Dick Grayson’s time as the “Boy Wonder” before he chose to become the more popular Nightwing.
Before this game was rumored, another Batman game starring Damien Wayne also made it’s way to the Internet. This title would have had an Infamous-like system that would determine if Damien was a hero or a killer. As of this writing, the only game Damien will be appearing in is Injustice 2, where he will be Robin again.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 and Assassin’s Creed were shown in the E3 2017 lineup leak, making Ubisoft look great. Ubisoft made a big deal over not having an Assassin’s Creed game last year, so 2017 could mark its return. Syndicate was the last official game in the series and it was loved, so the next one has big shoes to fill.
On the other side of the spectrum is Beyond Good and Evil 2, which has been delayed for years. While it still has no release date or gameplay footage, it will come to current-gen consoles, including the Nintendo Switch. If there is any place to debut a release window or new footage, it’s the grand stage of E3.
June 13 is a long time a way, so only then will we know if this E3 2017 lineup leak ends up being true. Considering how good some of these games could be, we can only hope some of these are the real deal.
