I can honestly see a Rogue One scenario where all we get is a brief teaser of the Visceral game at the start of the EA presser, similar to how there was a 45-60 second feeler teaser of Rogue One at Celebration, and then have Battlefront finish the conference.



Which insider said that about TLG?

Zoetis, a Junior who had only posted a few times before. Kagari vetted him and people were freaking out, but he was banned due to his constant teasing. Personally I'm skeptical because we hear rumors of TLG showing up every year, and it's never come to fruition. It'll happen when it happens.
 
I just thought of what Level 5's new game could be. I read over the gematsu article and Hino mentioned that he wanted to make a game that was larger in scale than White Knight Chronicles. Hino also said this when he was interviewed about Rogue Galaxy.

"As a creator, I always wanted to create a title that was as big as Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy. I believe Rogue Galaxy is on the same scale. This title will be our challenge to all the RPGs in the world"

I'd say we may see a new Rogue Galaxy or something similar at E3.

Hardline just came out. Viscerals title will probably just be a CG trailer. I highy doubt it tells us anything we don't already know gameplay wise. It's probably the next movie tie in.

Battlefront -> EP7
? -> Rouge One
Visceral -> EP8
Battlefront 2 -> Boba spin off
Bioware RPG -> EP 9
Don't they have two studios? Or did one get shut down?
 
It's still in development.
If they say that, this will be me in the audience:

Maybe but even then Amy Heinning only took control a year ago. The game sounds too ambitious for a 2015 release IMO.

I guess it all depends on how strictly they want/need a game a year. I guess Battlefront 2 could launch alongside SW8.

I don't know what prompted this (I guess Advent being teased, but I just want to get this out there:

I'm no inside, but just from what I understand about the industry, things at the beginning of this gen looked rough. After the Wii U bombed, there was a lot of worry from publishers that maybe console games really were dying to mobile, and that AAA console development would soon be a thing of the past. A lot of the money for contracts dried up, and a lot of studios downsized or were shuttered. But when the consoles launched to such massive acclaim, a lot of that began to turn around. In the words of Jeff Gerstmann, "deals started getting signed." Companies began to re invest in new IP, and a lot of AAA development started to really happen again. But that didn't happen until late 2013/GDC2014. That's why you're hearing about so much getting ready to finally be announced this year: we're at the point in the cycle where that can happen, and where real trailers can be shown. If people had tried to show their games last year, we would've seen a lot more of the EA approach. 2016 and 2017 are a lot later than a lot of us hoped for awesome new next gem experiences, but that's probably when they're going to happen, and that's why this E3 feels so magical. I'm ready.

You're forgetting EA Canada's open world game.

I think that if Battlefront succeeds (which it will), they'll make that one a 2 yearly release along with Battlefield. I think Visceral could release their game next year, game started production in 2013, and Amy joined in 2014. As for Bioware, I think it's still a long way out, maybe the Inquisition team could begin working on it, so it'll probably be a 2018/19 title.
 
Doubt they want to cannabilize Battlefront.

There's probably people who want any Star Wars game who would not purchase Battlefront if they knew that other SW game is coming. It's few people, but they probably want to prevent that.

Considering the amount of Star Wars games out there, I would think that having several games in the same year or within a short period of time really isn't that extraordinary, not to mention different upcoming games being known at the same time... And I don't see any potential sales cannibalisation, as long as they only announce another game (while not bringing it out for some time anyway).
But of course, things might be handled differently post Disney.
 
Funny, I thought about the same. What do we have?

  • 3 unannounced EA games
  • Vehicle-based Skylanders game
  • Uncharted Trilogy Collection by Sony
  • Gears of War 1 HD for Xbox One
  • Paper Mario debut on Wii U
  • Nintendo hints new Punch-Out! title
  • Street Fighter V will be at E3 in some capacity
  • 30-minute presentation of Fallout 4

What about the Metroid Prime guy?

Do we know what Bluepoint are doing? They've not done anything for over a year (since Titanfall 360 in April last year?) and:
We are currently bringing a Sony classic to current game systems as well as teaming our technical expertise with an industry leading developer on a next-gen, blockbuster franchise.

Does anyone know what these are? The Uncharted port?

Seems pretty likely. An Uncharted Collection is all but guaranteed at this point, and Bluepoint has been silent since their Titanfall port.

What happened to him ?
I see he is banned.

(sorry if OT)

Excessive teasing. He was whipping GAF up into a frenzy for no reason.
 
I just thought of what Level 5's new game could be. I read over the gematsu article and Hino mentioned that he wanted to make a game that was larger in scale than White Knight Chronicles. Hino also said this when he was interviewed about Rogue Galaxy.

I'd say we may see a new Rogue Galaxy or something similar at E3.

i would say its the new AAA JRPG from Sony Japan - NEW IP

Ha, I remember how he said that he didn't want to spoil the conference. So much for that.

We'll see. I think Mirros Edge 2 and Titanfall 2 will be bumped to Fall '16 with Battlefield 5 pushed to Fall '17 and Battlefront Fall '18.Then again who knows EA clearly wants mutiple yearly shooters if it's possible.

I'd cry if we got Rouge Galaxy 2. Imagine that universe on PS4. Ohhh my god.
 
why should level 5 work on a rogue Galaxy for the Ps4, a game that sold less than their latest project Ni No Kuni

Either a Ni No Kuni Sequel (Which had some really good sales in the West) or a new IP with higer Ambitions.....OR they work on the next Dragon Quest for Consoles

I can't remember if Verendus said that game would be in collaboration with another studio or if Sony Japan would be developing it by themselves.

He mentioned several JRPG Games from Sony Japan in 2013

On was Bloodborne - Developed by Fromsoftware/Published by SCEJA
So the same could be with the other Sony Japan RPG.

Hmmm so two from established franchises........

Mass Effect 4
Criterion Star Wars project?
Bioware's or Criterion's new IP

Does PVZ: Garden Warfare 2 count though? That hasn't officially been announced.

I imagine Disney and Visceral would have a 1313 reboot for the Boba spin off. Especially since 1313 was about Boba Fett.
 
I'm sure the potential for this game has been discussed on here before, but does anyone else want to see a POV Star Wars game for VR.
The lightsaber battles could be incredible. Flying an X-wing in VR...

This has to happen, eventually. Right?

What's this about an Uncharted collection? Did someone tease that or is that just speculation?

someone who definitely has industry contacts explicitly stated that there will be an Uncharted collection. Not a tease, full stop said it's a thing. He also had info on the next gimmick for skylanders if you care.

Ohhhhhh shiiiiiiitttttt. I will be so hyped and happy if there really is an Uncharted Trilogy announced at E3.

Lovely and logical analysis. E3, at least from the lay-man's perspective will always be a magical time of year for me. The anticipation and rumors that surround the potential launch of games and then the Press Conferences...just magical!

Wait, isn't Bluepoint working on the God of War 3 remaster?

Is the current rumor that they are also doing the Uncharted trilogy?
