The Switch Pro! Halo Infinite! Some unwieldy Bethesda RPG about house or magic or perhaps each! An total oil drum’s value of ink has been spilled on what to fairly anticipate from this yr’s all-digital E3. Less mentioned: what not to anticipate.
Some educated guesses will help fill within the gaps. For occasion, a Square Enix press launch concerning the lineup for its Sunday press convention didn’t embrace any point out of Project Athia. Ubisoft’s pre-stream details don’t say a single phrase about Beyond Good and Evil 2 or Skull & Bones (recently delayed to 2022). But any a type of video games—or extra—might nonetheless present up, whether or not as a shock or as an merchandise in Geoff Keighley’s mouthful-of-a-name Summer Game Fest Kickoff Live! occasion later right now. Unlikely, perhaps, however technically inside the borders of risk.
Some notable absences are safer bets—particularly as a result of the writer or developer has gone out of their solution to say that so-and-so video games received’t be making an look. And then, after all, there are the heavy hitters which have bowed out of this yr’s present totally. If the next seem in your E3 bingo card, I’ve bought some unhealthy information for you.
