This year Square Enix is holding a conference at E3, but we don’t know much about what it’ll entail, besides the fact that we’ll see the gameplay debut of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and that Final Fantasy XV won’t appear in favor of a promotional reboot at Gamescom.
In the latest issue of weekly Famitsu, the magazine tried to get some information from the biggest publishers on what they’re going to show at E3, and the Square Enix representative was keen on teasing.
“At this year’s E3, we’ll have our own conference for the first time after two years, where we’ll deliver to everyone the rich line-up of the Square Enix Group. What we’re going to show off at E3 is unprecedented in the history of Square Enix, with a strong line-up in which each can be considered a centerpiece.
Since we plan to stream the conference live, it’ll be at night [in Japan], but please watch it!”
The article also included comments from Microsoft, Bethesda, Warner Bros., Sony and Ubisoft.
Microsoft mentioned that we’ll see the games that will be released in the holidays, and the latest information about the Xbox One line-up, including more games from ID@Xbox and more on how Windows 10 will work on Xbox One. Warner Bros. was keen on hyping the upcoming Mad Max game, while Ubisoft proved rather tight-lipped, just talking about the announced playable line-up with The Division, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, and Rainbow Six: Siege.
Bethesda hyped Doom and Fallout 4, which will get its first gameplay video, and Sony… Well… It was pretty much a collection of (very polite) “no comment” answers. Looks like the house of PlayStation is keeping its cards close to its chest this time around.
PS: Before someone inevitably puts this in the comments, I will.
