It’s that time of year again. E3: where games are announced, hopes and dreams are either fulfilled or crushed, and the Ubisoft drinking game is revived once again. This year however, and after reading Kotaku’s article on what the staff expect to happen, I thought I’d be fun to hold a pool of sorts: what announcements do you expect, or just really really want, to happen?
The rules are simple: you place your scenario(s) down in the comments section below, they can be from any conference or event that’ll happen next week, and it can be from stuff that we know will be announced, to rumors, to even crazy announcements from out in left field. The winners will get the holiest of honor: saying “Called It!” until the end of time. I’ll go first, being my post and all.
EA: definitely: something Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst related (promo or DLC), DLC for Star Wars: Battlefront and/or announcement of another Star Wars IP, Battlefield 1 gameplay, first good look at ME: Andromeda gameplay. Out of nowhere announcement: current-gen Burnout.
Bethesda: definitely: Dishonored 2, Fallout 4 DLC, and DOOM DLC. Would like to see: Wolfenstein sequel. Out of nowhere announcement: Skyrim remaster (with mod support on console).
Mircosoft: definitely: Forza title, Halo Wars 2, Gears of War 4, Crackdown 3, Sea of Thieves, ReCore, Xbox One Slim model, ID@Xbox. Would like to see: a look at “Xbox Scorpio,” Hololens, Halo 5 and/or MCC DLC, Rise of the Tomb Raider DLC, Quantum Break DLC, Scalebound, Dead Rising 4. Out of nowhere announcement: Phantom Dust, Xbox Scorpio comes out this year.
Ubisoft: definitely: Ghost Recon: Wildlands, The Division DLC, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Watch_Dogs 2, a look at next year’s Assassin’s Creed (possibly a trailer for the movie). Would like to see: next step for The Crew. Out of nowhere announcement: Beyond Good and Evil 2.
Sony: definitely: Uncharted 4 DLC, Gran Turismo Sport, PlayStation Neo, PS VR, Destiny DLC, No Man’s Sky, Horizon: Zero Dawn, something Final Fantasy related. Would like to see: The Last Guardian coming out later this year, InFamous sequel. Out of nowhere announcement: Sly Cooper, GTA V and/or Red Dead Redemption sequel (the latter could be announced at MS conference).
Nintendo: definitely: Zelda NX. Would like to see: Pokemon MMO, Mother related releases. Out of nowhere announcement: Nintendo goes third party, will start making games for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.
And... that’s all the stuff off the top of my head. What do you guys think will be (or would like to be) announced at this year’s E3? Leave your predictions in the comments below, and I’ll join you next week... after my finals are all done...
