As the days fly past, anticipation steadily increases. Gamers around the world are eagerly refreshing feeds. Predictions abound for what may be showcased at E3 2019, and we are no different.
Last of Us Part 2
Naughty Dog has been teasing us more than a schoolyard bully. Fans can only hope the long-awaited sequel will appear in another showcase since PlayStation has opted out of E3 this year.
Undoubtedly, Microsoft will provide more details about the continuation of the franchise that essentially launched Xbox into competing with PlayStation. Perhaps we’ll see something about the new TV show as well.
Gears of War 5
Speaking of competition, we can expect the third-person shooter will be presented in all of its gory glory. It would be awesome to see some new gameplay footage.
Something about Destiny
Bungie’s running solo these days, so does that mean we will get more information on the future of the series? They could steer the conversation toward the next installment; although, with Free-to-play coming in September for Destiny 2, this seems unlikely. It’s also possible that they’ll hold off until GuardianCon to do any announcements.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint
Ubisoft is almost definitely going to use the opportunity to push the next Ghost Recon game and the differences between it and Wildlands.
Final Fantasy VII Remake
After 22 years, perhaps Square Enix will finally be ready to release an updated version of the game. In the wake of Kingdom Hearts 3, now would be a perfect time to announce the fully remastered version. Even their website teases that this will be the case.
Roller Derby Champions
E3 seems like the perfect time to announce Ubisoft’s supposed Rocket League challenger. Roller Derby is brutal and incredible. If the studio can pull it off, this could be the next big contender, especially if it’s cross-play enabled.

Out With The Old, In With The New
With Sony not having an E3 conference this year, the event is sure to be a much different beast than previous years, but it should still be exciting. I’m predicting Microsoft shows up in a big way, showcasing their heavy hitter titles and also titles from their first party studios in development. The biggest criticism of Microsoft this generation has been their lack of exclusive titles and the lack of quality within their exclusive titles. Sunset Overdrive has been a bright spot in an otherwise rather lackluster lineup save for a few exceptions like Gears of War 4. I’m expecting to see Gears 5 and get a release date for it. To see Halo 6, probably a new Forza entry, some Microsoft Hololens/VR gameplay and most importantly the announcement of their new console to try and kick start the excitement for the future of Microsoft’s gaming platform going forward. I think EA will do their best to showcase their content, focusing heavily on sports like always while showing off their new Star Wars titles, and Ubisoft should focus on Watchdogs and Assassin’s Creed.
