It’s fair to say that gaming news has been a little on the slow side since the pandemic hit us back in March 2020. We have seen games delay their release dates multiple times throughout and it has left us wondering when will gaming get back to normal?
Well with E3 officially happening, is this the end of the gaming drought?
Well, the short answer I think to that is yes. E3 has always been the biggest platform for gaming companies to announce new titles and showcase upcoming games. There’s been much excitement among the gaming community about this year’s E3 and what might be announced this year. This article will be published after the event has ended but nevertheless let’s see what’s coming up during E3.
We know that Xbox will be showcasing upcoming games which will excite all Xbox fans. Many will be wanting updates on the potential release date of Halo Infinite as well as seeing potentially more news on the much-awaited new Fable instalment. For racing fans, they will want more news on the new Forza Horizons game.
Square Enix are also hosting a showcase with many Final Fantasy fans wanting more details on Final Fantasy 16 and if Square Enix will add to the Marvel franchise. Tomb Raider fans will also be anticipating Square’s showcase to see if it will reveal any more details on the 25th anniversary of the Tomb Raider franchise after, in my opinion, the poor celebrations that were announced earlier in the year. As always, Square Enix is always one of the most anticipated showcases at E3.
Nintendo are also hosting a showcase at E3 this year. We know for a while now that there have been rumours of Nintendo producing a Switch Pro and E3 is a good time to announce a new console as well as new games they have been working on. Zelda fans will be watching to hear news on Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.
With all this happening during June, I think it’s safe to say that our gaming drought is potentially coming to an end and we will have lots of new games to look forward to during the rest of 2021 and beyond.
