E3 is on the horizon once again, and with it comes a silly season of predictions, rumours, and wishlists.
Of course, we’re not above playing the guessing game ourselves, so here are five things we think are pretty likely to go down during Sony’s E3 presentation.
The Last of Us Part 2 Release Date and Gameplay
We know The Last of Us Part 2 is happening, thanks to a glorious reveal a few months back. What better way for Sony to steal the show than to give us a release date for the hotly anticipated exclusive?
Better yet, we could get a first look at some gameplay footage from Naughty Dog – maybe even some hands-on time. Dare to dream.
Another promising exclusive from Sony, the Spider-Man PS4 game is being developed by Insomniac (of Ratchet & Clank fame).
We haven’t seen so much as a webbed armpit from this one since its reveal at last year’s E3, but here’s hoping we get a proper look (and maybe even a release date) come the big day.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Release Date
I mean, it’s been long enough right? We’re all dying to know when we can finally get our hands on the remake of one of the finest games of all time, and E3 is the perfect time to share that news with the world.
Failing that, maybe we can get a peek at just a little more gameplay. It looks so good.
Death Stranding Release Date
Okay, this one is more wishful thinking than anything else, given Kojima has said that his wacky passion project is still a fair ways off, but a man can dream.
At the very least, maybe we’ll get another cryptic trailer to pore over or even – whisper it – a gameplay demo.
Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay
At this point it’s all but been confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be launching in September at this year, but E3 could be Sony and Rockstar’s big chance to finally show us the sequel in action, and confirm the release date properly.
Honestly, I’d bet the farm on this one. I don’t have a farm, but if I did, that’s what I’d bet.
More Classic PlayStation Remasters
Sony revealed the Crash Bandicoot N’Sane Trilogy at last year’s E3 to a massively positive reception from not just gamers, but pretty much anyone who grew up with the original console.
Given the response Crash got, it wouldn’t be the craziest idea to assume that Sony has more remasters in the pipeline. Ape Escape, Medievil, or maybe even Spyro – all of these would go down a treat.
Whatever happens, we can all agree that Sony’s E3 show will be one to watch.
