E3 2016: Predictions or: How I learned to stop worrying and love being wrong

No Caption Provided

E3 is upon us! Just time for some predictions based on absolutely nothing.

This list spun out of an Xbox subreddit comment from a few weeks ago, so is A) biased towards Microsoft, and B) probably already out of date.

Microsoft:

  • Hardware redesign and/or specification bump
  • Halo Wars 2 - Hopefully gameplay, but at least a new trailer
  • Age of Empires IV - Combine that and Halo Wars 2, and it'd be a great time to add Keyboard/Mouse support to the Xbox One
  • Double down on backwards-compatibility - More games (long shot - other consoles e.g. original Xbox, Dreamcast). Probably be an EA Access tie in (more 360 games in the Vault)
  • ID@Xbox roundup - Could be just about anything, but I'm hoping to see more Cupheard
  • Battlefield 1 - Trailer and early maps for Xbox One
  • Forza Horizon 3
  • Crackdown 3 / Recore / Scalebound - Probably mentioned; level of detail will depend on if/when they have been delayed (possibly held for Gamescom)
  • Sea of Thieves - Gameplay and trailer
  • Gears 4 - Gameplay demo
  • (Possibly at E3; may or may not be at MS) Bioshock Remastered
  • Possibly too soon, but Alan Wake 2?
  • Halo 6 - possible, but likely only a teaser trailer or part of the Halo Wars 2 block. Maybe also a Halo 3 Anniversary as MCC DLC (long shot)
  • Long shots - Phantom Dust / Banjo 3 / new Conker
  • Very long shot - Xbox One is a PC / can boot into Windows 10
  • Nintendo Xbox

Sony:

  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare - Trailer and early maps for PS4
  • Persona 5 - Trailer
  • The Last Guardian - Trailer and release date
  • Final Fantasy VII - Trailer and release window
  • Big block of VR games
  • Horizon Zero Dawn - gameplay demo.
  • Long shot - Steins;Gate 0 trailer
  • Long shot - New IP from Kojima Productions
  • Very long shot - Sleeping Dogs 2 teaser

Bethesda:

  • Red Dead 3 and/or Red Dead Redemption Remastered
  • Skyrim re-release on PS4/Xbox One
  • Dishonored 2 - trailer and release date
