E3 2019 is set for June 11-13. With it being so close, we thought we'd take a look at some of the top games that have been confirmed so far, and those rumored to appear.
As one of the most important gaming conventions held each year, the biggest studios often present their most exciting projects under development. Microsoft, Bethesda, Square Enix and others are already confirmed to be in attendance. Here are a list of some the most-expected titles to be presented, and those we want to see:
Confirmed: Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order
After years of cancelled projects in the Star Wars franchise, and a playerbase asking EA to create a rich-story driven single-player experience, it seems that all the dominoes are falling into place. The game is being developed by Respawn Entertainment, is single player only, and comes with the promise of no loot boxes or microtransactions of any kind, now or in the future. Players rejoice!
Rumored: Beyond Good and Evil 2
The upcoming action game from Ubisoft comprises a prequel to the original game from 2003. Since its announcement at E3 in 2017, there has been radio silence on the matter, so there is a good chance we will (hopefully) see a further developed project.
Confirmed: Cyberpunk 2077
Microsoft will be hosting and showing off the game in its panel this year. Little material of any real substance has been released since the game was first presented, but with the creators of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in control of development, there is no reason to assume anything but excellence from this forthcoming title.
Rumored: Elder Scrolls VI
We should not get our hopes up too high on this one. Although fans have been craving the next installment to the game, most signs point to a release around 2024. There truly has been so little official information given as to the nature of the next game, so a solid presentation and information dump would be appreciated by the community, even if the expected release date is indeed five years away.
Rumored: Final Fantasy VII Remake
Here is a nostalgia-fueled classic that has been demanded for years. After its initial announcement years ago, issues arouse that resulted in a total lack of news for fans. Now howsoever, with four of the most important original developers confirmed to be working on the project, there must be news coming, preferably sooner rather than later.
Rumored: Various Nintendo IPs
With Metroid Prime 4 officially delayed, there is now room for another franchise to take center stage in the Nintendo panels. Games we would like to see range from Pokemon: Sword and Shield, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, the remake for Link's Awakening, as well as possible developments for the forthcoming Super Mario Maker 2.
Finally, there are also games confirmed to be at E3, but without a dedicated panel. So far, there are Doom, Scavengers, Bee Simulator, Dying Light 2, Borderlands 3, The Sinking City, and Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood. Whatever lies in store, E3 is always an exciting event showcasing the best and brightest to come, and it cannot arrive soon enough!
