Aside from the previously revealed titles like Starfield or Halo Infinite, which more than likely have a showcase at E3 2021, the main speculation is around the games that have not been officially announced yet.
What World Premiers Will Be Shown at the Microsoft E3 2021 Press Conference?
If we consider all the new projects at Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda as contenders of having showcase at this year’s E3, then the number of world premiers will surely have double digits. However, not all of them are ready to be revealed.
Of all the ongoing, unannounced projects at Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda, there are five games with high possibility of being showcased at this year’s E3 as World Premier.
Forza Horizon 5
Three years after the latest entry of the Forza Horizon series, it seems the time has come for another entry for this incredible franchise.
As per rumors, Forza Horizon 5 will likely have a showcase at this year’s E3 and it will apparently show off the true power of Xbox Series X in delivering realistic experience.
The game is said to be set at Mexico, but you would better take it with a grain of salt for now.
While Arkane Lyon is busy working on Deathloop, Arkane Austin apparently has a new ongoing project that is ready to be unveile at this year’s E3.
As rumors suggest, the new title from the developers of Prey is tied to the Vampire culture. Nothing more than this has been provided by the leakers, but a story-driven Vampire game from Arkane Austin already sounds exciting.
A Kojima Productions Title
It’s probably too early to talk about this one, but let’s face it. Hideo Kojima definitely has something in production, and we do know that he is not working with Sony or Google anymore.
For a project that was supposed to be backed financially by Google, there couldn’t be any better replacement than Microsoft. Besides, Phil Spencer would love to expand his relationship with Japanese developers, specially talents like Hideo Kojima.
Last but not least, don’t forget about the Ludens statue at Spencer’s room.
Indiana Jones Game
Forget about that brief teaser from Bethesda. The full World Premier for Machine Games’ Indiana Jones title is yet to come.
If we are lucky enough, we might be able to get at least a cinematic trailer for the upcoming Indiana Jones game from the developers of Wolfenstein 2.
According to rumors, there are even more Lucas Film projects going on at Xbox Game Studios, but the Indiana Jones is probably the closest to be announced.
New Game from Compulsion Games
Since its acquisition by Microsoft, Compulsion Games has not revealed anything up to this date. The studio has hired new developers in different points over the last few years.
This year’s E3 could the best opportunity for this talented team to finally reveal their first project under the wing of Microsoft. No details are available around Compulsion’s project so far.
The Microsoft E3 2021 showcase will go live on June 12 this year.
