Devil May Cry 5
Capcom may finally announce Devil May Cry 5 at this year's E3. The long-running series has continuously put out new installments over the years, with the latest, Devil May Cry HD Collection, coming out this year, but it's been a decade since Devil May Cry 4 released. While the franchise was rebooted in 2013, there are now rumors that the developer plans on announcing a fifth mainline installment in the series, which will reportedly release sometime in the 2019 fiscal year, meaning anytime from now until the end of March 2019. Going based on past releases, that probably means sometime in January 2019.
A new Pokemon game for the Nintendo Switch is on its way. And while not much is known about the project, there are plenty of rumors floating around. According to the rumors, the game will be an RPG titled Pokémon Let’s Go!, with two versions releasing, just like what The Pokemon Company does with their handheld titles. But what's most interesting is that the game will supposedly feature Pokemon Go mechanics. It's possible that Nintendo will officially reveal the game during their Nintendo Direct on June 12, but we'll just have to wait and see.
Life is Strange 2
Developer Dotnod Entertainment confirmed that Life is Strange 2 was in the works back in 2017 - two years after the first game released - so it stands to reason that the sequel could finally be unveiled during Square Enix's pre-E3 showcase in June. After all, following Life is Strange: Before the Storm, the developer wrote in a blog post that they plan on revealing the first details regarding the series' future within the coming months, thus meaning E3 or before. Of course, the sequel will follow a new story, as well as a new set of characters, since Chloe and Max's story is now complete.
It's amazing how fast Bethesda Softworks confirmed RAGE 2 following Walmart's sudden, albeit questionable, leak. Bethesda officially confirmed the game is in the works on May 14, and then they released RAGE 2's first gameplay trailer the following day. And judging by what has been revealed thus far, it seems the studio is taking the Mad Max-esque gameplay to the next level for the sequel, which is already looking much better than the first game. Bethesda should unveil more about the title, including its release date, during their E3 2018 showcase.
Untitled Capcom Action Adventure
Capcom is one of the most iconic video game developers and publishers in the industry, having created franchises like Mega Man, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, and even Dead Rising, among many others. And now, in addition to reportedly bringing a new Devil May Cry game to E3 2018, Capcom also has an unannounced "action/adventure" title coming to the annual expo. Since the listing specifically describes the game as an "action/adventure," it seems that it's separate from Devil May Cry, since that game is more hack-and-slash. Considering recent rumors, though, it's possible, though unlikely, that Capcom's new game is actually Dead Rising 5.
Untitled Remedy Game
Remedy Entertainment has been working on a game codenamed P7 (or Project 7) for quite some time. While the studio already told their investors they plan on launching the unannounced game in 2019, nothing is currently known about the title, aside from a hint at the game being multiplatform. But, it seems they plan on finally unveiling the new project at E3 this year. Hopefully, whatever new game they bring to the table this year will release sooner rather than later. Otherwise, the studio runs the risk of losing general interest in their latest title once again, which is, sadly, what happened to the 2016 Xbox exclusive, Quantum Break.
Nintendo first announced Bayonetta 3 during The Game Awards last December, but they have yet to really unveil the game. That may finally happen at E3 2018 during the Nintendo Direct presentation. Then again, it just might be too soon to show off anything about the game until they've taken care of their 2018 lineup, but at least fans know the sequel is out there and that it's in the works. Hopefully, gamers can get either a short teaser or a few new images to tide them over until next year.
The first three Skate games released within three years of each other, but it's been eight years since the last one hit store shelves. So, what gives? Rumors about Skate 4 have been making the rounds for a long time now, but it seems that they might finally come to fruition at E3 this year. An online retail listing from earlier this year indicated that Skate 4 was on the way, and then, recently, a leaked image showed that a trailer was in the works for this summer's gaming expo. Although the game hasn't been confirmed, it seems possible that Skate 4 could finally be announced.
Square Enix may be focusing on Shadow of the Tomb Raider right now, but they have plenty of projects in the works that gamers know little to nothing about. One of those unrevealed games might be Outriders. The publisher had mentioned plans to expand their library of original IPs and it's possible that Outriders is one of those games. Square Enix recently filed a trademark for Outriders through the EU Intellectual Property Office, which means there's a possibility that they will unveil Outriders during their E3 showcase in June.
Mortal Kombat 11
It's been three years since Mortal Kombat X released. And, although NetherRealm had been busy developing their DC Comics-based fighting game Injustice 2, it's about time for another Mortal Kombat game. There aren't any specific reports or rumors suggesting a Mortal Kombat 11 announcement at E3 2018, but game director and franchise creator, Ed Boon, hinted at a new Mortal Kombat game only recently - and he's not one to tease without having a substantial payoff on the horizon.
Every Game Revealed At Previous E3 Expos
In order to save time, every game that has been revealed at past E3 expos, and will most likely be shown at this year's E3, has been combined into this one section: Anthem, Crackdown 3, Death Stranding, Kingdom Hearts 3, The Last of Us Part II, Spider-Man PS4, Metro Exodus, Dreams, Metroid Prime 4, and Ori and the Will of the Whisps. A few more games may be showcased at E3, but those either haven't been confirmed as of yet nor have there been any indication that they will show up.
