This week is a double event for the video game industry. Last night at 8 p.m., it was the launch of the Summer Game Fest. A two-month gaming festival with announcements, surprises, LIVE meetings and much more!
This weekend, from tomorrow, it’s the return of E3 2021 until June 15. It is thus many hours of conferences and LIVES which await the players of the whole world with beautiful surprises, good emotions and perhaps also some frustrations.
In any case, there are already a dozen highly anticipated games that should not be part of E3 this weekend. Here is a small list so as not to give you false hopes!
Call of duty
This week, Electronic Arts unveiled the highly anticipated Battlefield 2042 which will land on October 22, 2021 on PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game will receive a gameplay presentation during E3 during the Microsoft conference on June 13 at 7 p.m. ET.
Alas, we should not expect to see the Call of Duty 2021. The eternal rival will not be present in Los Angeles. According to numerous sources, Activision will present its future game over the summer. According to the latest information from insiders, the situation was not really reassuring around the development of the next Call of.
Prince of Persia Remake
Expected for the start of the year, Prince of Persia Remake was pushed back to next year (at best) for a complete overhaul. Following its presentation at the Ubisoft Forward in September 2020, feedback from fans made it clear that the rendering of the game was far from meeting their expectations.
Ubisoft has therefore taken the decision to resume most of the development of the game to offer the Prince of Persia a remake to his height. French editor has already announced that the game will not be present at E3 and that it will take a few more weeks to get a new preview.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Legacy
It is arguably one of the most anticipated games of the year 2022 (if it is not yet postponed) and it will be necessary to be patient to have a new glimpse of it. Warner Bros has announced that their presence at E3 will be centered around the Back 4 Blood game and that they shouldn’t show anything else. And that’s a shame.
God of War Ragnarok
It will be a year in September since the Sequel to The Adventures of Kratos was announced for release this year. A few days ago, Sony officially pushed back the title to 2022 and we won’t have the chance to see the first images of the game during this E3. For the third year in a row, PlayStation is not participating in E3 and therefore will not be showing its exclusives.
Gran Turismo 7
Another big PS5 game that was expected for 2021 and which is seen to be shifted to 2022: Gran Turismo 7. The game (which will also arrive on PS4) has no chance of being on the nice list of games for E3 2021 as God of War given that Sony is ignoring the event.
Horizon: Forbidden West
After a great presentation at the end of May, the Guerrilla Games teams have promised to unveil new images and information around Horizon Forbidden West “very soon”. But there again, hopes fly on the E3 since Sony is absent subscribers. On the other hand, it is not impossible to have a new trailer and a release date at Summer Game Fest.
After the incredible Batman Arkham of the Rocksteady studio, the games Gotham Knights and Suicid Squad are eagerly awaited. Alas, for Gotham Knights it will be necessary to be a little patient. A spokesperson for Warner Bros. Games (which handles the Harry Potter, Gotham Knights and Suicid Squad edition of the game) confirmed in TechRadar media lines that none of the games will be present at E3 (nor at the Summer Game Fest) this year.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
Logically, like Hogwarts Legacy and Gotham Knights, the game Suicid Squad: Kill the Justice League will not be present at E3 (nor at the Summer Game Fest). A blow to the fans and we hope that Warner Bros. Games will catch up very quickly!
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
Announced at E3 2019 for release in 2020, LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga has experienced some delays to the point of now being scheduled for a very vague “2021”. Alas, very little chance of seeing the game in the next few days since Warner Bros. Games will bet everything on Back 4 Blood!
Dead Island 2
Announced seven years ago, at E3 2014 for release in 2015, Dead Island 2 is long overdue year after year. Although Deep Silver and Koch Media will be present at E3 and the Summer Game Fest, the editors have already announced that we should not expect new information around the game. ) a little patient.
Available since March 2019, The Division 2 is a staple of Ubisoft games. Since the release of the first opus, the series has been a hit and should return soon on Netflix via an adaptation… And in 2022 on PC in a free-to-play version with The Division: Heartland. Alas, Ubisoft has already confirmed that it will not be talking about the series this year at E3.
Resident Evil 4 VR
Announced a few weeks ago during the RE: Showcase for the 25th anniversary of the Resident Evil series, don’t expect to discover Resident Evil 4 VR at E3. Capcom will be present, but Oculus development studios will not offer new images according to Mike Doran, executive producer of the studio.
A real must-have each year, despite the many disappointments over the last few opuses, we are firmly awaiting the first next-gen FIFA. Alas, very unlikely to see him at E3 (except for the Microsoft conference). Chances are, the game will premiere on July 22 during EA Play.
Saints Row V
Unofficially, Saints Row V is in development at Volition. Alas, he shouldn’t be showing anytime soon, at least not during E3 2021. Koch Media has already confirmed that the title will not be part of the journey. The game shouldn’t be part of the Summer Game Fest either.
Grand Theft Auto VI
It is without debate the most anticipated video game of the next few years. Officially, the game is still not announced. Unofficially, everyone knows that Rockstar Games is working on it. Alas, it will not be necessary to count on E3 or the Summer Game Fest to see the game. Despite the presence of Take Two at both events, it is a certain GTA V which could show itself in its next-gen version on PS5 , Xbox Series X and Series S.
