Rumor: Sony E3 Conference Details Leaked: Uncharted, The Order, Guerrilla, Media Molecule and Much More

Update 06/09: quite obviously most of the list below did not came true. There have been rumors about Sony changing its schedule about three weeks ago, but that doesn’t really change much. Having spent quite a bit of time interrogating the source that provided this list, I decided to publish it, as his footing seemed solid, but quite obviously it has been a regretfully bad call.

During the months leading to E3, we received several lists like this one, and for each tip a call had to be made on whether to publish it or not. This is the only list that filtered through, as it was the only one the source of which seemed to know what he was talking about. Unfortunately my intuition and perception about it were misplaced. 

I’d like to personally apologize to our readers for having contributed to create misleading expectations.

The original article can be read below:

We’re just a bit over a month to E3, and today a source that opted to remain anonymous contacted us to share what he alleges to be Sony Computer Entertainment’s plans for their press conference.

Our source mentioned that the information comes from contacts within Sony’s worldwide studios and a further contact at the BBH New York marketing firm, which works with Sony for part of its promotion.

The info reported below is awfully detailed, which is one of the reasons why we decided to publish it, but we were also able to confirm part of it with a second source. The double-sourced information is  bolded, so while you should take everything with the customary grain of salt, the bolded parts stand on more solid ground than the rest.

  • Uncharted PS4 3 Minute Trailer showcasing ”In-engine” footage interspersed with gameplay segments. Visuals are supposedly unprecedented and set a benchmark for console graphics. Summer 2015 release date. It looks absolutely stellar. Features tropical setting and differing time periods with Nate/Francis.
  • Media Molecule’s new title will be a landmark title for Morpheus. 3D world building, beautiful, quirky visuals.Extremely creative and fun. Possibly related to the ”Entwined” trademark filed last week by SCE (not sure). Late 2015.
  • Gran Turismo 6 is coming to PS4 as 1080p 60FPS repackaged title in the vein of Gran Turismo 7: Prologue. Stunning visuals, extra features (social connectivity, new tracks, dlc etc). Coming mid-late 2015.
  • God of War 4 teaser will be present – will be CG with snippets of in-engine footage. A little early for reveal, but is designed to offset negativity surrounding canceled new IP and generate excitement – also to partially offset CG announce of Gears of War at Microsoft presser. Late 2015. Date wont be announced.
  • Kill Strain trademark is related to Syphon Filter reboot for PS4. Sony Bend working on revamping the franchise. Stealth, beautiful visuals and a possible Winter 2014 title. Bend finally getting to join the big boys.
  • Wipeout is also making the transition to PS4. Source is unsure of who is developing it, but hints that it could be Sony London, Evolution, or Firesprite.
  • Quantic Dream has a trailer prepared – unsure whether it is penciled in for Gamescom or E3. Sony will be watching Microsoft’s presser earlier in the day to gauge whether additional titles will need to be slotted in to dampen hype. Expect Dark Sorcerer- like visuals in real time. Off-topic, but still relevant – they are close to deal to become a Worldwide Studios developer, along with Ready At Dawn.
  • Speaking of Ready At Dawn, The Order:1886 will get a stage demo. Big title for Fall 2014.  Sony is expecting great things from said title – franchise hopes rest on its performance.
  • Ninja Theory working on a PS4 exclusive – possible Heavenly Sword sequel which was shelved a number of years ago. Quite far into development.
  • Sony London will be at E3. First AAA title in many years. 3rd person title. Gorgeous. They’re back with a bang, 
  • Guerrilla Games bringing their RPG to E3. Provocative setting – very interesting. Insane visuals as usual. A good reaction to the title is expected. Will please the hardcore.
  • Sucker Punch busy at work on an inFAMOUS: Second Son DLC. Really cool. New powers. Possible new setting. E3 debut.
  • Sony Japan Studios debuting two, maybe even three titles. Project Beast – spiritual successor to Demon Souls. The other is The Last Guardian. Retooled for PS4, possible Winter 2014 title. The Other title is shrouded in secrecy.
  • Evolution will give Driveclub some time in the limelight. It’s shaping up to be incredible with jaw-dropping visuals. Demo release will be timed with  the press conference.

The source also mentioned that the following publishers will be on stage: Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, Konami, Capcom, Warner Bros, Activision, Square Enix, Take Two.

(Update: our source followed up to clarify that he’s actually not 100% sure if Rockstar will actually be on stage or Sony will just announce the next generation Ground Theft Auto V on their behalf)

There will also big titles announced for the Instant Game Collection, a segment on Project Morpheus, one on the Sony Entertainment Network and a re-introduction of PlayStation Now. Price drops will also be unveiled for the PS3 and PS Vita.

We’ll also see several smaller-scale, downloadable titles and some HD collections. PS Vita Vita will get some attention, but not much – as it’ll be a PS4 show. PS3 will get a montage and few new titles.  Finally, the show will close with a teaser of a sequel of The Last of Us.

Again, everything mentioned above should be taken with the skepticism usually reserved to rumors, but much of it is so specific that it’s hard to completely disbelieve it. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait for June to see if everything will check out, but one thing is for sure: Personally I really hope it will, because if this is really what Sony’s presser will look like, we’re in for a real treat.

    I’m only here to say… GROUND theft auto. Ground.

  • Firion Hope

    Looks amazing if true. TLG, Project beast, Vita/PS3 price cuts among other things. Really going to be disappointed if they don’t give Vita a decent amount of love though

  • megablast16

    Holy shit! If Sony finally announce The Last Guardian for PS4 and a set in stone release date I’ll be ecstatic, the rest of the line up isn’t too shabby either with the proviso that’s it’s all true of course.

  • Sina 4

    Will all of these announcements happen in just 90 mins? Plus some indiegames ?
    It’s good to see kratos and Nathan in e3….

  • tres_de_tripa

    I dunno guys, don’t get me wrong, this looks like a killer list of games, except that there are too many, that is what I do not beleive, I mean, they have to show morpheus, PS Now, and brag about those likely 9-10 million consoles sold through customers, plus, destiny, ubisoft and square, how long the press conference is goona be? 5 freacking hours?

    • phaedruss

      MOrpheus won’t be there.

      • JustGaming

        Yes it will, the notion that it won’t is quite ridiculous. No offense.

  • Black Falcon

    the sony as always waiting for microsoft, companies who take the work out their ideas about thinking of themselves not in the other, so sony is considered garbage company without vision you expect the competition to launch their products, and this is the company As regards consumers and and “goddess” of games companies

    • Dennis Djoenz

      And look at Nintendo now? Not adapting to changes in the gaming industry and demographic groups. Wii was gamechanger and innovative, but the WiiU should have targeted other groups not the same group. The same group have moved on to mobile and tablets.

    • Sucka Free

      Hey, look! it’s Jake Maze again! Missed you buddy

    • 3rdworldgamer

      next time, try to write in a manner that most will understand, ok?

    • MTM2

      Nintendo invented platformers and motion control right?

      Flag and move on.

    • Elvick

      Enjoy Nintendolanders.

      • Black Falcon

        I can not do anything if the Sony consoles are a clone of other companies…
        more interesting is that the sony speaks so poorly of Microsoft and Nintendo technologies but insists copy them on their consoles

      • Black Falcon

        So the ps eye don’t count???

        • Elvick

          I like that I didn’t respond to your last comment 6 days ago, so you try again.

          And I don’t know what you mean. PS Eye (PS3) is a continuation of the EyeToy on PS2. PlayStation Camera (PS4) is a continuation of something they’ve done 3 times now.

  • Justin Magee

    i think a little more attention should be placed towards the vita…… the way this article sounds its like theyre dismissing the vita. i understand putting the ps3 on the back burner to make way for the ps4, but to over look theyre current handheld offering is foolish. what better way to give to adopters of this floundering product faith in your company. plus to not develop quality content for the vita almost makes the investment of r&d, and production almost pointless

  • Viktor Kateliev

    i like the square enix bit, and there was a rumor just published yesterday about the ff15 release being shown, i hope its at sonys!

  • milwaukee

    well sony’s e3 this year looks boring I mean who wants another uncharted ? may be in a few years, and then another god of war please stop.

    • MTM2

      ” I mean who wants another uncharted”

      Nearly everyone with a PS4.

      Wait a few years? if it launches in 2015 that’ll be 4 years since Uncharted 3…

  • DemonFenton

    At least Sony has games verses MS that makes you watch TV on their system more.

    • Guest

      Not if you look at MS’ rumored list. It outclasses this PoS list by a mile.

      • MTM2

        You have so much confidence in that comment you choose anonymity.

      • DemonFenton

        I like cowards who uses an guest account to talk trash. MS don’t have any games #dealwithit

  • Sunzy

    the last of us 2? don’t think so, ND always have 2-3 years with development and are releasing UC4, their first true ps4 title its hard to believe that because TLOU:Remastered is coming that signifies that a sequel is on its way Already

  • Carlos S. Na

    ‘Leaked’ but still with secrecy? Someone still believes these aren’t planned leaks? xD

  • burning_justice

    Can’t wait until Nintendo RAPES this line-up with their godly E3 Direct.

    • superkarma

      Lmao…that’s hilarious. Thanks for the laugh. I think what made it even more funny is that you actually believe it….poor guy.

      • Ryumoau

        lol

      • burning_justice

        You might want to cherish the little remaining time you have left with PHony because Gaystation is going DOWN.

        • MTM2
        • Raven Nafariea

          Unfortunately, that is more true for Nintendo. Not that I want it to fail. I grew up on Nintendo and will always have a special place in my heart for it I really want Nintendo to succeed. I think they will in the long run.

        • superkarma

          Again, thanks for the laugh.

  • Ryumoau

    none of the games listed really interest me, unfortuantely. :(

    • KevJumbaify .

      wtf? HOW???

  • NoThanks

    Well better than the x1 rumor list and usually PS tends to win the E3 showcase “wars”

    • VersaType

      They seem on par.

    • TheJaeBird

      I graciously disrespect your comment. This list definitely pales in comparison to the Microsoft list.

  • http://www.reddit.com/r/X1UIMockups/ ilovegoogleglass

    Not really impressive just solid…

  • John Maurice

    I guarantee that the third title that Sony Japan Studios is working is something related to Ape Escape. Possibly Ape Escape 4.

  • TheJaeBird

    I am thoroughly curious about where they go with God of War and Heavenly Sword, but other than those two….oh and Media Molecule of course…this seems pretty hum drum to me. I will watch it…per tradition…but if these “leaks” are accurate, Microsoft has definitely grabbed my interest by the nuts much harder than this.

  • YuriFan

    Shit list, move along so you don’t waste your time on it.

    • ps4lol

      You seem upset at PS4′s stronger hardware, ~3 million sales lead, and larger developer support. It must suck that most or all of your claims and predictions turn out WRONG.

      You don’t understand business, sales, or hardware specs, all you can do is fling feces and scream like a rabid animal. Microsoft fanboy shills don’t love their console they just hate the success of others.

  • Los Illuminados

    hmm…very nice. would be nice if all that “Leaked” information turns out to be all true. looking forward to any and all JRPGs titles.

  • a random person on the interne

    gta 5 ps4 and xbox one

  • Jeff Hocker

    Reads more like gamer wish-fulfillment. If even half of this stuff ends up being true, it would be the greatest E3 ever.

  • Azim Nazmi

    not that i against this or anything, the ONLY thing i’m waiting on E3(if possible) is God Eater 2 localization :. but GOW 4 looks nice though.

  • rudero

    please please please

  • stealth20k

    mostly bullshit as usual from this site

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Since you dislike this site so much, I’m sure you don’t mind being shown the door.

  • Jane Spelacio

    This is a hilarious read tonite. No wonder Alexa Ray was thrilled to stop writing for this site.

  • Kasual7

    I’m pretty sure your source was legit, most of the leaked info turn out to be true at Sony’s E3 and Sony certainly applied some changes beforehand.
