Here Are the Biggest Games We Didn’t See At E3 2021

With the E3 2021 extravaganza rapidly coming to an in depth, it’s time to reflect on the strategies whereby our hopes have been dashed. There are already a ton of lists on the market that recap all the items provided at the current, nonetheless what about the video video games we didn’t see?

With massive players like Sony and EA skipping this 12 months’s current, it was inevitable that there have been going to be a great deal of MIA video video games. Outside of the widespread suspects, there was a slew of video video games we desperately wanted to see nonetheless that merely didn’t make the scale back. Regardless of whether or not or not these video video games (and one console) are caught in enchancment hell, delayed on account of COVID-19, don’t really exist, or are merely prepared for a special occasion in the photo voltaic, this is a guidelines of some of the largest missing names from E3 2021.

Splatoon 3

As jam-packed as Nintendo’s E3 Direct was, it was nonetheless missing just some massive upcoming titles. A variety of days in the previous, I acknowledged that we’d see each Breath of the Wild 2 or Splatoon 3 at E3, nonetheless not every. As it appears, Breath of the Wild 2 acquired out, leaving Splatoon followers a little bit of dissatisfied that there wasn’t additional content material materials following Nintendo’s bombshell announcement earlier this 12 months.

Very little is thought of Splatoon 3. A cinematic trailer for the recreation confirmed new locations, customizations, and weapons, nonetheless no exact gameplay has been revealed however. Fans should protect prepared patiently for the recreation’s 2022 launch window.

Bayonetta 3

Speaking of missing Nintendo bulletins, there’s nonetheless no phrase on the highly-anticipated third recreation in the Bayonetta franchise. The recreation was first launched at The Game Awards in 2017; since then, no footage has been confirmed and no launch window has been given.

Despite the lack of reviews, Nintendo assured followers in early 2019 that the recreation continues to be in manufacturing. Nintendo reiterated this assertion additional usually in proper now’s Direct, saying that it has a great deal of video video games in manufacturing that aren’t in a position to be confirmed however. We can solely hope that Bayonetta 3 is one amongst them.

A Switch Pro console

This one isn’t technically a recreation, however it certainly’s nonetheless a extraordinarily anticipated enhance from Nintendo. Rumors of an “upgraded” or additional extremely efficient Switch console have been flying for the last few years, and loads of followers have been hoping to see it premiere at E3 along with video video games that will profit from the bigger graphical fidelity.

Nintendo did state that it was specializing in video video games, not {{hardware}}, all through this express Direct, nonetheless you could’t stop followers from dreaming. The sample in consoles does seem to favor incremental upgrades barely than solely new platforms, so it stays to be seen whether or not or not Nintendo will give followers a mid-cycle vitality enhance.

The Elder Scrolls VI

This one is just about a meme at this degree. Despite Bethesda taking pains to companion with Microsoft for a joint current, the developer didn’t level out The Elder Scrolls VI, fundamental followers to marvel in the occasion that they merely hallucinated that first trailer.

TES VI’s announcement wasn’t even truly a trailer — it was merely the recreation’s title over a (presumably) in-engine panorama shot. Skyrim turns 10 years outdated this 12 months, so that you simply’d assume Bethesda would want to say a bit of additional about its upcoming successor.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2

Also notably missing from Microsoft’s current was the much-anticipated sequel to Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. The recreation has been confirmed as an Xbox and PC distinctive, which makes all of it the extra uncommon that it wasn’t part of Microsoft’s spotlight.

Hellblade 2 hasn’t been seen since its reveal at The Game Awards in 2019. Some are speculating that it could be seen at Microsoft’s second current later this week. Even if that appears to be true, it’s odd that Microsoft would want to shunt one amongst its most anticipated video video games to a side current barely than make it part of its most vital manufacturing.

Splinter Cell

Nothing appears to have modified this 12 months for the Splinter Cell sequence. There hasn’t been an entry since 2013’s divisive Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and followers are starting to get decided.

Based on Ubisoft’s suggestions when requested about the sequence, it appears as if Splinter Cell isn’t one amongst its largest priorities correct now. At one degree, Ubisoft creative director Julian Gerighty launched {{that a}} new recreation was in enchancment, nonetheless the agency disputed the declare. All we’ll do is protect our fingers crossed for yet one more journey with Sam Fisher.

Beyond Good & Evil 2

Another Ubisoft recreation that didn’t make an look was Beyond Good & Evil 2. A sequel to the 2003 genuine was launched in 2017, nonetheless there was little gameplay, paintings, or narrative content material materials confirmed since then.

Ubisoft posted an exchange on the recreation’s site in July of 2020, stating that “[the game’s] presence at events — whether digital or in-person — will be extremely limited for the time being,” nonetheless nothing new has been shared since then. It’s unclear why nothing has been confirmed, which is larger than a little bit of worrying for followers.

Skull & Bones

This upcoming pirate recreation from Ubisoft was one amongst the most unique points launched at E3 2017. Fans have been excited at the various to reside out the in-depth pirate objectives they’d first fostered in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

Though Ubisoft has set a 2022 launch window for the recreation, no new updates have been shared on the Skull & Bones site since 2018. It stays to be seen whether or not or not additional particulars could be provided about the recreation’s promised naval battle and diplomacy mechanics.

Call of Duty

Call of Duty bulletins are generally the largest, most brash trailers to return out of E3, nonetheless there have been none to be found at the 2021 current. (Maybe that’s why this 12 months felt a little bit of quiet.) Publisher Activision seems to be additional centered on supporting Black Ops: Cold War and Warzone correct now, nonetheless that doesn’t suggest that one factor new will not be on the horizon.

It’s attainable that we’ll get a model new entry at the very least fairly rapidly; followers are always excited at potential new settings and modes for the sequence. Getting a model new Call of Duty every couple of years is additional dependable than most points, so I wager that we’ll see one factor sooner than prolonged.

Elden Ring

Well, we observed it at Summer Game Fest, nonetheless that’s not technically E3, is it?
