The massive video game event known as E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) is less than a couple weeks away. I don’t know about all the other gamers out there, but the conference is definitely my favorite part of E3! Within the conference, of what used to be the three main studios (Nintendo, Playstation, and Xbox) … Now, Playstation and Nintendo are no longer part of the event and have their own designated, direct segments that release throughout the year at any given time.
CD Projekt Red is coming from the well received Witcher 3 that was last released in 2015. Cyberpunk 2077 is the next game from the talented developers who created the open world, fantasy RPG. Rather than going with the fantasy genre once again, CD Projekt Red has opted for a different setting by bringing it to a futuristic environment as well as going with the first-person perspective instead of the third-person view from The Witcher 3.
Halo Infinite was announced last year during Microsoft’s E3 press conference. During that conference, Microsoft was showing off what looks to be a tech demo with great visuals — that actually turned out to be the announcement of the next Halo game. Nothing else was shown since then, and it’s been confirmed that more will be shown this year at the Microsoft event.
Bethesda will be having a press conference again this year and will be focusing on Doom Eternal. The game was announced last year and will be getting an in-depth look during the showcase.
Dying Light 2
Developer Techland teased the game at last year’s E3 and has said that they will have more to show during E3 2019. They have tweeted out, “We can’t wait to show you the latest look at our most ambitious project to date.”
Just like Halo Infinite, Gears 5 was first shown and announced at the Microsoft conference. Gears 5 is a direct sequel to the previous Gears of War 4 … going against a new foe called “The Swarm.”
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Respawn, the developers of Titanfall, is working on the next Star Wars game … and guess what? It’s a single player game! Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was revealed earlier this year but only showed off cinematics and no gameplay. This time around, EA is having a livestream instead of a press conference, and they have confirmed a time slot for Star Wars so you can bet to see the game in action then.
Gearbox recently announced and showed off the game with new elements all this year (you can check out our look and highlights in our previous Borderlands 3 article). Gearbox still has more to show for E3 before the game releases in September.
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint
Tom Clancy’s latest Ghost Recon was announced earlier this month by showing off a trailer and gameplay. You can bet Ubisoft will show off more of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint during its press conference.
The Outer Worlds
The Outer Worlds Twitter account tweeted out, “The Board wants to let you know to pay attention to broadcasts from Los Angeles, California, Earth, in the coming weeks for [REDACTED].” That’s a good sign that the newly acquired Microsoft developers — Obsidian Entertainment — are going to show off more of the game or provide more details during Microsoft’s press conference.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps
Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a magnificently beautiful game which is the sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest. Ori and the Will of the Wisps was announced during E3 2017 and is expected to come out later this year. It’s pretty much a given that we will be delighted with more information, and hopefully a release date or window when the game will come to Xbox One and PC.
