In comparison to developers like Bethesda who’ve chosen to hold their E3 briefings before E3 actually starts, some developers stay true to the original E3 3-day schedule. While it’s good to have the game developers spread out over a span of several days, it can also lead to a bit of fatigue amongst gamers, who have already been dazzled by earlier presentations.
Square Enix will have its work cut out for it, then, as it’s scheduled to deliver its E3 presentation on Tuesday, June 16th at 10 am PDT. Square Enix has promised to bring several titles to its presentation, but it’s also keeping at least one game under wraps until the show.
Square Enix released an E3 hype video on its official YouTube channel, advertising the majority of the games they will be showcasing, as well as teasing gamers with their secret title. One of the most expected titles is Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which is currently slated to be released at the end of 2015. While it was previously leaked that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided would be coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and some plot elements and augment abilities have been unveiled, a lot remains unknown about the title.
Square Enix fans can also expect to see another dose of the Final Fantasy XIV expansion Heavenward a few days prior to its planned June 19th release. While the exact content is unknown, Square Enix has teased that it’ll be letting attendees ride the flying fat chocobo mount hands-on.
New gameplay footage from Rise of the Tomb Raider will also be shown, but fans of the series will need to watch the Xbox E3 press conference instead, as it’s planned to be a timed Xbox platform exclusive. The Xbox E3 press conference is currently scheduled for 9:30 AM PDT on Monday, June 15th.
Square Enix has also promised to reveal one secret title, though whether this is a new IP, a sequel to an existing series, or a remake of an older game is unknown. In any case, it’s sure to get them some additional viewers who are hoping for long-abandoned series to receive sequels or reboots. Unfortunately, Square Enix has already announced that Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy XV won’t be making an appearance at E3, so don’t hold out hope for those to be the secret.
What do you think the secret title is? Is there one game in particular you’re hoping to see more of from Square Enix? Let us know in the comments.
