With E3 being so close, the rumor mill is going round and round, creating more rumors, revealing more leaks, making everyone anxious about what’s to come or not. Here are some of the rumors that might be true, as they do carry some weight to them.
Before we carry on, it’s worth mentioning what we’ll surely see at E3, and what I’m eager to see revealed: CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 and Bethesda’s announcement – we really hope it’s got, to do with The Elder Scrolls VI!
Activision’s Call Of Duty 2019
Activision will announce the new Call of Duty game at E3 and might be Modern Warfare 4, considering Infinity Ward has hinted that they’re working on a game that is related to the Modern Warfare series.
Microsoft Will Reveal the Next-Gen Xbox Console
Microsoft is rumored to be working on two new consoles, and one of them could be announced this year at E3. One of them is more of a budget version, while the other should be more powerful. We know them by their codenames Lockhart (the cheaper one) and Anaconda.
We might have a great surprise from Microsoft and get the new consoles at a reasonable price, considering that Phil Spencer mentioned that the business to make money is to sell games and access to games, but must be opened up to the public to increase the size of the business.
Rumors have it that the next-gen Xbox consoles could be on the market starting with Fall 2020.
From Software To Tease Two New Games
The theory is based on George R.R. Martin’s blog post, the author of the popular “A Song of Ice and Fire.” He mentions that he consulted on a game made by a Japanese developer, without giving other details. The rumors were reported back in March and revealed details about the game. The game has been in development for the past three years and should be revealed at E3 in the Microsoft press conference, revealed Digital Overload.
We think the rumors might actually be true, considering From Software already said in January that they are working on two titles after Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and that they will have the same dark tone as the Soulsborne titles. We’ll probably see a tease of the game with a TBA release date, considering Sekiro has recently been released.
Other Rumors from Microsoft and Nintendo
Aside from revealing the next-gen console, Microsoft might tease a new Fable during their press conference. An insider reported to NeoGAF that it is a new beginning for the Fable franchise and that it’s a next-gen game that will probably be out in 2021 at the earliest, adding that this year at E3 we will see a small teaser trailer.
If this person’s report is to be correct, Microsoft’s conference will be HUGE, revealing Xbox exclusive titles from all the studios acquired, last year, and more.
Meanwhile, Nintendo, even if it won’t announce a new Switch at E3, that doesn’t mean that they won’t reveal it before or after it! It’s been two years since the Switch got released and Nintendo should be revealing new one(s) this year or the next. The Wall Street Journal talked about two new Switch models that could be released by the end of 2019, and Nikkey confirmed one of them.
