Square Enix Will Attend E3 2021 Including Plans of an Announcement


Get ready for some Square Enix news at E3 2021

Missing from the roster along with Sony when the event announced it was initially going digital, Square Enix will now be joining the growing gaming event E3 this year.

After 2020’s E3 expo was cancelled because of the pandemic, it seems that things are starting to look up giving gaming fans some hope of getting a glimpse into the future of some of their favourite titles this summer.

According to Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda in a recent interview, the publisher has plans for game-related announcements at E3 2021. When Matsuda was asked about any potential Square Enix titles that may appear at E3 2021, he replied:

“Outriders, the release of which was postponed, was released on April 1 and NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… will also be released in April. In addition, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will be released in June.”

“We’ll be announcing the rest of the line-up [later], and we’re also planning to make an announcement at E3 in June, so please keep your eyes peeled.”

On Resetera, fans have been already speculating on what could be announced when Square Enix make their appearance at E3. A few of the comments suggested things like new Kingdom Hearts news for its 20th anniversary, Final Fantasy 16 and Forspoken info.

Although Square Enix has yet to be officially confirmed, they will join the likes of Xbox, Capcom, Nintendo, Konami, Take-Two Interactive, Ubisoft, Koch Media and Warner Bros. Games.

The E3 event this year will take place on June 12 and finish up on June 15 with the event being renamed as “Electronic Entertainment Experience” instead of the usual ‘Expo’.
