Hello gents. Great show.
I don’t expect this E3 to be different from previous ones in terms of new announcements. The so-called next gen has brought but a few IPs to the table, with companies betting instead on tried and true franchises.
Still, I would like to see new games both from first and third party studios.
Activision shouldn’t step outside its comfort zone, with Call of Duty and Destiny taking centre stage. A new Tony Hawk game could be announced and I would like to see something from Crash Bandicoot as well;
Aside from Battlefield, I expect EA to show something Star Wars related. My great wish is the revival of 1313;
As far as Ubisoft goes, the major reveals of the last two E3 have come from them (Watch Dogs, The Division). Will they do it again? Nevertheless, Assassin’s Creed and FarCry are guaranteed to show. I’m hoping for a new Prince of Persia...
