So what will we see at this years epic gaming convention?

Don't get your hopes up for CD Project Red's latest game in development, Cyberpunk 2077, nor Sony and Nintendo's upcoming consoles PS4.5/Neo and the NX. These have already been confirmed to not appear during E3.

Some confirmed titles we're excited for include:

  • Battlefield 1 (EA)
  • Dishonored 2 (Bethesda)
  • Final Fantasy XV (Sony)
  • For Honor (Ubisoft)
  • Pokemon Sun and Moon
  • Night in the Woods
  • Nioh
  • Watch Dogs 2 (Ubisoft)
  • Xing: The Land Beyond

However, the confirmed titles will only be the half of it. Rumored to be announced during Bethesda's press conference is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim remaster (PLEASE), The Evil Within 2, and Wolfenstein 2. Considering they have a long conference, expect to see something new from them along with Dishonored 2 and maybe some Doom DLC.

We will no doubt see more of the Final Fantasy VII remaster and The Last Guardian during Sony's conference. The latter should be incredibly interesting after they released a demo preview to Edge Magazine a few weeks back. I expect we may see a similar on-stage demo showing all new gameplay with the protagonist and his companion Trico.

Microsoft's conference is expected to showcase Xbox One exclusives Gears of War 4, ReCore, and hopefully Scalebound since it has been delayed until 2017. Can we even expect the Hololens to make another appearance this year?

So who has tipped Ubisoft to announce a new Assassin's Creed? We know already that the series is skipping a 2016 title, but will they announce the inevitable return this year or wait closer to their usual October/November (2017 that is) release window? Instead of a video game, we may actually see a new trailer for the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie!

I personally am hanging out for some news from From Software regarding the Dark Souls III DLC, which could be shown during Microsoft's conference. I also can't wait to see what indie titles will be announced!

What about you? What are you most excited for? Let us know in the comments!
