E3 2018 is still a few months away so it is not surprising that more games have not been confirmed yet. So far on the list we have The Last of Us Part II, Anthem, and the 2018 Battlefield game.
EA has confirmed that the new Battlefield will be playable at EA Play 2018 from June 9th – 11th at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium. Anthem by BioWare will get some coverage, but it has not been confirmed if it will be playable at EA Play. Anthem was supposed to release in 2018, but the date is now set in early 2019. Anthem is still a bit of a mystery even though BioWare had shown gameplay footage last year. We will know more about EA as we approach Spring, so far we know the tickets for EA Play 2018 will be free. EA is expected to have a press conference on June 9th.
Multiple teasers and trailers have shown what The Last of Us Part II could be about. The storyline and gameplay is still quite vague, but it seems unlikely that the game will release this year.
Rumored Games for E3 2018:
A few years back Cyberpunk 2077‘s teaser trailer gained attention, but that teaser trailer was all that we had. The developers of The Witcher have not made an announcement about showcasing Cyberpunk 2077 at E3, but many are hoping for it. On New Years Eve, Hideaki Itsuno, the director of Devil May Cry, tweeted that his new game is under production so he was not able to show it last year. It is rumored to be Devil May Cry 6.
E3 2018 will have a lot in store for Nintendo Switch. Kirby, Metroid Prime 4, a new Pokemon, Project Octopath Traveler, and Yoshi are not confirmed but likely to appear. At Paris Games Week 2017, Insomniac Game’s Spider-Man trailer wowed the crowd. Since we were only left with the trailer, Insomniac Games attendance at E3 is necessary.
Some other games that we may see are Death Stranding, Borderlands 3, another Tomb Raider, and Red Dead Redemption 2.
Major developers, publishers and consoles will have presentations which can be viewed through livestreams. E3 will run from June 12th – 14th at the Los Angeles Convention Center, but the presentations will precede the official E3 event. Similar to last year, E3 is open to the public.
