Elden Ring

Elden Ring can be considered as one of the most anticipated games in E3 2021. Developed and published by FromSoftware and Bandai Namco Entertainment respectively.

E3 2021 - This Year's Most Anticipated Video Games

It is expected that this time the community will be able to hear more regarding the game,  either with a gameplay trailer or with a mere cryptic teaser with a release date. If anything like that happens, Elden Ring will be able to steal a lot of attention in E3 2021.

Beyond Good and Evil 2

Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier and published by Ubisoft, Beyond Good and Evil 2 is another game for which the community is waiting. This game is a sequel to the 2003’s Beyond Good and Evil. Even though announced back in E3 2017, the community wasn’t blessed with any kinds of official updates further after. This action-adventure RPG is one of Ubisoft’s most ambitious projects recently.

It is heard that the development of the sequel is going through a rocky development cycle for the past 3 years. It is expected that Ubisoft will announce something regarding the development of the game. And many are expecting something pretty good, as they have been waiting for nearly three years. Beyond Good and Evil 2 is expected to make its appearance in E3 2021 as a part of Ubisoft’s ‘Ubisoft Forward’ presentation.

Mario Kart 9

Ever since the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which was basically a re-release of Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U, there weren’t any updates regarding a new version coming to the players. After the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in 2014, fans are waiting for nearly far a brand new entry in the series. Some fans of this franchise are hoping that Nintendo will surprise everyone by announcing Mario Kart 9 in E3 2021. Since Nintendo loves to do surprises.

If Nintendo ever introduces the next Mario Kart, it will be mostly a fresh game with new characters. But it will be also interesting to see some of the classic characters from the franchise also, as this franchise have a pretty good loyal community. Fan’s are actually hoping for that, as Nintendo had done something similar with their Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

But, since this is just a speculation from the community and not any kinds of official statements have been released to concrete the expectations, we suggest you keep your hopes low. Even if Nintendo doesn’t announce any kind of next version to the Mario Kart, they should at least release DLC for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Something to keep the fans happy for a little while.

Starfield

Announced back in 2018, everyone is going to keep their eyes on Bethesda Softworks regarding any information about the game. Many are expecting that the game studio will reveal this game finally in  E3 2021. Do note that there is a Microsoft and Bethesda joint event on Sunday, June 13. Since Starfield was seen on the image of the event invite, we can hope that Bethesda will do something to end the fan’s three-year-long wait.

Elder Scrolls 6

It’s been a decade since Skyrim was released, and till now, fans are waiting for the next installment in the franchise. This is the second game on our list where we are looking to Bethesda for any updates. Fans are expecting that there will be something to expect from Bethesda regarding Elder Scrolls 6. E3 is the point where fans are rooting for any updates regarding the new game from the highly-anticipated RPG franchise. Bethesda actually showcased a very lame teaser a couple of years ago which featured a brief video showing what looked like highlands which lead the community to speculate many things.

Also, on New Year’s Eve last year, the official Twitter handle of Elder Scrolls tweeted out a photo of a map of Skyrim. It had some candles and other items on a table, where one of the candles was placed right underneath the word Hammerfell to Skyrim’s southwest. The whole of the internet has begun to speculate that Hammerfell will be the setting for Elder Scrolls 6.

Halo Infinite

Bethesda is perhaps that kind of game studio that loves to make the fans suffer from waiting for their favorite game titles to be released. As this is the third game from Bethesda in the list where the studio is making the fans keep their hopes high and wait for any kinds of news regarding the game. Fans are expecting to hear something interesting in the Microsoft and Bethesda joint event.

The good news is that the teaser photo of the event hints at Halo Infinite along with Starfield. So, it is obvious that we will hear something about the game at the Microsoft Bethesda joint event on June 13th. Players are looking forward that there will be a date for the Xbox reveal.

Skull and Bones

Skull & Bones is the first game made by Ubisoft Singapore. Announced back in E3 2017, the game was initially supposed to come out in the next year itself. But we saw it getting delayed, that too nearly three times. There some reports which stated that Ubisoft Singapore has now restarted the game’s development from scratch a few months back. Now we are expecting that Ubisoft will now announce its final reveal date on E3 2021. Fans are currently expecting the game to be released in 2022.

GTA 6

Yes, we all know GTA 6 won’t be coming anytime soon, but that doesn’t stop us from not hoping for at least one percent that we may see something regarding the game. It’s been eight long years since Rockstar Games shook the world with the launch of GTA 5. This could be perhaps the longest stint the gaming community ever had between major installations of the hugely popular, open-world game.

There is no day recently where we don’t hear at least a rumor regarding GTA 6. Whether it’s a fake rumor or not, fans are so thirsty to hear anything regarding the game that will help them sit calm and wait for the game. While the world is pleading with Rockstar Games for a new installation in the franchise, The game studio company is only giving them updates for GTA Online, which is still one of the popular games on the internet.

Ever since it was heard that Rockstar games will be in E3 2021, fans are all hoping to get at least a drop of water-like information regarding the game. Just imagine if they dropped a teaser image or even a title for the game? That would be enough to turn the entire internet towards GTA 6.

Gotham Knights

Gotham Knights could be considered as the much-awaited title, at least for Batman fans. Announced back in August 2020, initially, Warner Bros planned to release the game sometime in 2021. Unfortunately, because of what happened in the world, later on, this was delayed to 2022.

Other than this news and a small gameplay video that was showcased, fans were unable to hear more regarding the game, nor was able to see a fresh trailer for the game. So game studios should indeed do something during the E3 2021, as the fans are expecting some interesting announcements regarding the action role-playing game.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League

This is another title from Warner Bros that DC fans have been waiting for, Besides the cinematic trailer, we don’t have anything besides that. It is expected that we will hear something from Warner Bros. regarding Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League onE3 2021. Fans are keeping their eyes open to see the gameplay of the game.

In the game, players will take on the roles of the most dangerous villains of the DC Universe. This gang consisted of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark. Developed by Rocksteady Studios, the same studios, which brought the famous Arkham trilogy. This is a highly anticipated installment of the series where we will not see Batman be featured as the title character or the player protagonist. It is set to grab everyone’s attention in E3 2021.

Spyro 4

Activision, the game studio famous for the Call of Duty games, hasn’t done anything out of that franchise recently. It seems like they don’t want to get out of the Call of Duty franchise. But Activision does have many IPs under its belt. One among them is Spyro, there was actually Spyro Reignited Trilogy announced back in 2018, but we don’t hear much about that later. Chances that we may hear about this game in E3 2021 as Activision is taking part in it.

Final Fantasy

Square Enix has not one but more than one Final Fantasy title in the works! Yes, now if you ever saw a Final Fantasy fan all hyped up to see Square Enix in E3 2021, you know why. Square Enix is currently working on Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, and Final Fantasy 16. Since it’s been a while since we heard anything regarding any of these titles from the Final Fantasy series, E3 will be the perfect spot to know more about them.

For those who don’t know, Final Fantasy 16 is the sixteenth installment in the long-running Final Fantasy franchise. This installment is produced by Naoki Yoshida, and in this game, this time we may see the game go back to the franchise’s medieval high fantasy roots with the sci-fi path taken in recent installments. Fans are all excited about the high-octane, action-packed gameplay that was shown in the trailer. Paired with epic music is enough to make the fans excited about Square Enix’s event on the E3 2021.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

The Legend of Zelda sequel is another Nintendo title for which the players are waiting for a long while and are looking forward to at E3 2021. Announced back in 2019, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is on the waiting list to be released, and fans have been watching the 1 minute 27-second long trailer for the past two years.

Metroid Prime 4

After announcing the Metroid Prime 4, Nintendo didn’t reveal any solid information on the game since then. After 3 years, we are still waiting for further information. Since there are several reports suggesting that a new Nintendo Switch Pro console may be announced pretty soon,  it seems to be the right time for Nintendo to reveal Metroid Prime 4 at E3 2021.

Bayonetta 3

Initially revealed in 2017 as a Nintendo Switch exclusive, Platinum Games, the developers of  Bayonetta 3  didn’t reveal much about the game except till then. The only thing we know is that their team is working hard, and the game’s development is going on currently.

The studio also recently confirmed that they would announce something related to the game in 2021 and what time is better to announce a game, other than E3 2021? Among the many anticipated games fans are waiting to see making its way to the Nintendo Switch and to the rumored switch pro, we could consider Bayonetta 3 also.

Diablo 4

After the third installment not being able to perform well, Blizzard Entertainment is set to revive the hugely popular action-RPG series with the new installment in the franchise with Diablo 4. The announcement trailer was aired in Blizzcon 2019 and gained a lot of praise from fans. Since it’s the time E3 and Blizzard Entertainment are also taking part in it, we may hear something regaining the game.

Far Cry 6

We all know that FarCry 6 will be the star of the show in Ubisoft’s event in E3. even if they don’t give any information about any of their upcoming game’s in E3 2021, Ubisoft will for sure give information regarding their upcoming far Cry installment.

This upcoming FarCry installment is set in the Cuba-inspired Yara, a fictional island in the Caribbean. The game will feature iconic Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito. Enough to attract the Breaking bad fans and FarCry fans together.

Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy is a role-playing game developed by Portkey Games and Avalanche Software and published by WB Games, where players will be able to take part in an epic adventure in the wizarding world based on the original Harry Potter novels.

The game has gained attention from a lot of Harry Potter fans as Harry Potter games always have a loyal fanbase. It is expected that we will hear more about this game in E3 2021. As of now, the Hogwarts Legacy release is slated for 2022.

Dying Light 2

After the first installment being a great success, the second in the open-world survival zombie horror series is set out with even more scope. With the Dying Light 2, Techland will improve the already impeccable parkour system. The players will be able to determine how the story goes based on their decisions.

Pragmata

First shown in 2020, this bizarre game developed and published by Capom may seem to share a few similarities to the Kojima-Esque sci-fi aesthetic of Death Stranding. After the announcement trailer, fans are all set to hear about this game in E3 2021.

Stray

This is a third-person adventure game set in a futuristic cybercity. Stray is a puzzle simulation game developed by BlueTwelve Studio and published by Annapurna Interactive. The game is scheduled to be released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 in 2021. We will be able to hear more about the game in the 2021 E3.

Fable

Everyone in the community noticed the Fable 4 reveal back in 2020. while there has only been the release of a few trailers, it has hyped many people in the gaming community for the game. It is expected that we will be able t get a closer look into the game in E3 2021.

This may include where the story sets, what creatures we can expect to see, whether it’ll continue to focus on heroes, and even whether the rumors about time-traveling are actually true. What we could just do is to hope that Microsoft will give us more than a cinematic trailer.

Skate 4

It’s been 11 years since Skate 3 has been released, and now there are rumors suggesting that there could be some sort of Skate-related project in the works EA. Along with this, the developers back in June last year sent fans of the franchise into delirium after announcing that they were back. Which means what you have read.

Yes, the Skate franchise is back! But we are uncertain regarding any kinds of announcements that EA could make in the E3 21021 regarding the Skate 4 officially. If only EA announced anything regarding the game in EA, then only we could estimate the Skate 4 release date. Since we have waited for more than a decade, we just need to wait for some more days regarding any official update regarding Skate 4 official release update.

TimeSplitters 2 HD

Yes, the Free Radical is coming back with original founders David Doak and Steve Ellis, with the aim of creating a new TimeSplitters game. While we may not be looking at a potential release date, we may hear about what are they planning for their franchise and what would be the upcoming game from the franchise.
