There has been a lot of confusion over the last couple of months of what is happening with E3 this year. It has now been confirmed that we are getting a fully digital event coming to us on June 12th – 15th.
The event is currently said to be free but there were some suggestions that the event will be a paid event. There is currently nothing suggesting that, with the current announcement. In the announcement, we have a large range of video game companies that are included.
E3 digital has Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two, Warner Bros And Koch Media And More Are Rumoured To Be Announced.
Both EA and Playstation have not been announced for the event but near all others have. It is surprising as it was rumoured that a lot of the companies were going down their own route as they did through the year without an E3.
What big games could be announced?
After a very long year for everyone. The amount of delays we have seen through this year already in the last two years is huge.
There are a lot of games that are most likely delayed before being announced. At the moment, we are still looking at a very quiet year for games. One of the biggest announcements could be Star Wars games. After the exclusive contract is over, a lot of games can be made at a lot other studios.
Making this, for me, the IP to look out for, for the whole of E3. It also should be noted that Nintendo is in E3 making it likely that this will be a massive announcement after a weird year of announcement for them.
Will Playstation and EA change their mind?
At the moment, it doesn’t look like Playstation will appear in E3. They are surprisingly the most closed company, out of the big three console companies. With them being the last company to even let crossplay happen on their consoles. Playstation, arguably, has the best events in their State of Plays. EA could still change their mind.
These events have never hit the bar with very lacklustre events. That really could benefit from joining the E3 showcase. This makes them the most likely company to join E3 at some point in the future.
